    I don't really understand commentary on the last game; unlike Ludwig, 5up was checking every single move. No stalemate chances even with full premoves.

  • JMUDoc

    Why TF was Ludwig premoving that checkmate? At his rating AND the increment, he had TONS of time. And don't give me "throwing for content"; only Boxbox's shrewdness saved him.

    He is either throwing or this is a prime example of cockiness. Happens to me when im winning and full of myself and thats where u embarrass yourself. But i guess its a win for ludwig as such a fail is more funny than him winning.

    Yep, that's why I always promote to a rook instead of a second queen in completely winning positions like that. You can safely premove a ladder mate with no chance of stalemate (just have to make sure the queen is behind the rook). I'm surprised none of the coaches have told their players to do that given how many stalemates we see

    5up wasn't at risk of stalemating. The stalemate trap only works if the king is moving ahead of the queens. Like, the king has to get to the back rank before either queen comes to the seventh rank.

    nick needs someone to explain to him each time why his calculations don't work. "no, remember how you said taking that pawn would be a check, so taking the other pawn would logically also be a check." "no, remember your king would still occupy that square, right" etc.

    Was there really a possibility of stalemate on sapnap vs 5up second game? They could reach the same position but since it would be 5up's turn, it'd be checkmate. Am I crazy?

  • Nando Alves

    9 ditë më parë

    You're not crazy, but Ludwig could've also saved his position one move earlier by not making a ladder in the parallel to the kind movements. If he went one way to the side he'd have been fine. In 5upp's case he was already a move behind the king, so he didn't have to do that. Basically, the king nerds to already be on the edge and then the queen that's coming from behind the other queen needs to be exactly one square away from it. It's actually very hard to do and it only worked out for boxbox because he made sure to be one step behind and two steps to thh side of the farthest queen. If he had moved up the first time the queen went behind the first step of the ladder, then the same thing that happened to 5upp would have happened to Ludwig, he'd have been fine.

    I guess his problem is lack of experience playing, he sometimes misses pieces when calculating and he sometimes mistakes loosing positions for wining ones. He just needs more practice to learn what a wining position actually looks like.
