Do I not know the rules???
  • Ricardo (Santos) ★ at 2003-01-21

    Please have a look at my game http://www.littlegolem.net/jsp/game/game.jsp?gid=22365
    I thought it is not aloud to castle when one of the fields between the rook and the king are threatened??? Moi could easily castle in his 8th move. Do I not know the rules or do we here have an error in the program?

  • ypercube at 2003-01-22

    you were right. castling should NOT be allowed there. black move 9 was illegal at this game. I think you should send a message to Richard about this.

  • David J Bush ★ at 2003-01-22

    That is correct; this is a bug in the LG software for chess. Black should not have been allowed to castle queenside in that position. However, it is not strictly correct to say that you may not castle when one of the fields between your King and rook is threatened. I refer you to this rules page:

    http://www.uschess.org/beginners/letsplay.html

    where it says: "...the King may not castle out of check, into check, or through check."

    So, for example, if the square b8 were threatened by an enemy piece, instead of d8, Black could still legally castle queenside. The King would move from e8 to c8. It also does not matter if the rook is under attack prior to the castling move.

    Sorry for it. I had bug in software. It is all right now.

  • Ricardo (Santos) ★ at 2003-01-24

    Thank you all, Richard, David and cube in yperspace! OK, now I know the rules more exactly :) But, according to Moi the bug is still not fixed. He is still able to do the forbidden move. Although this time he didn’t.

  • Richard Malaschitz ★ at 2003-01-26

    Yes, there was next bug in software. It is all right now.

    Games do not win themselves.
    In this game the vacation time never was applied to it..the reader will have appreciated that all that technique offers is the; [Do we have any problem with time?]... that, that..., the reader should notice that in some position will have appreciated that all that technique offers is the information that there are possibilites. What the possibilities are must be worked out imaginatively, or laboriously with a counting of fingers,and possibly, an abacus or/and maybe use during the 21 days vacation time. (It has never been decided whether there were an option for me resign/draw/vacation or any consious or unconsious act or any intentions for this action to take place); it has never been decided thru my email notification or any choices of options to decided whether there is a penalty on a a chess player <
    One of the great advantages of chess technique is that when you begin to see it, you can begin to apply more of your effort toward analyzing and preparing for situations realistically.

    Please I request an a RETR0-Investigation of circumstances that force this outcome, and/or explain “WHY” the 21 days wasn’t applied to this time event.
