2008-11-03 22:42:05Elroch1466It is hilarious that this catches people (including me), but in context in a game it would pose no problem.

2014-01-07 18:33:31Elroch1466... but got it this time round. Next time quicker? :) 
2014-05-23 21:25:32mathaias1445Elroch, good point! I stared at it for several seconds looking for a catch that wasn't there. In a real game, on the other hand, I'd grab that rook instantly. ;)
