Knight (Phorku) vs ex-Knight (me) Challenge 0-1

I've recently won another Knight challenge against Phorku over at Net-Chess... Phorku (White) to move, resigned in a lost position.

P.S. Good game Phorku! If you want a rematch just let me know, okay?

Is that diagram only gotten from that server, or are you able to generate them some other way?

No, these are diagrams generated by ChessBase. I put them on the blog by getting the game on screen first, go to the position i want shown, then i hit the

"Prt Scr
Sys Rq"

button on the keyboard, paste what i just printed into Paint, then i cut the diagram out of the printed screen image (using Paint), exit Paint, start it up again and paste the diagram, which i then save as a JPG image, which i then search for with the Blogger image tool and upload it to the blog etc. etc.

Good game Edwin! You reacted very well to his bad positioned queen on d3. It seems you are starting to see the results of that tactics training!

To my opinion, the diagrams would be nicer if they were a little smaller. But it's a matter of taste.

Thanks Majnu! And about the diagrams... I will play around with different sizes and see which i like best. As a matter of fact, when i created this post yesterday, i accidently had a smaller version of the diagram uploaded, and it indeed looked nice.

Edwin why are you an ex Knight ?

Ah! I'll see if my fellow contributor can do that on his computer (since I don't have a printer) and then maybe i can get them on my blog.

Cool game too.

I was joking, by the way, about needing an actual printer. So, when one hits "Prt Scr/Sys Rq" where does this go to be saved? Is it then just on the cliboard from which one can just paste?

Yes Quando, it is saved on the clipboard.

And as for you St. Patzer, i responded to your comment at the actual post.
