You don't think focusing on the lack of goods passing back and forth as being determinative of whether or not a trade war is going on is not exactly on point with a Chess Match?

Have you ever played Chess Matt? Or do you treat it like a conversation?? Hard to distinguish from random motion?

No Bobbo. I have captured pieces and sacrificed pieces to set up a winning strategy. Trading pieces would result in a draw,

It is clear you also don't know how to play chess.

Trading pieces: 7.5 million hits on how, why, and when to do it. Three Questions to Ask When Trading Pieces | Chess Blog of iChess ...
https://www.ichess.net/blog/three-quest ... ng-pieces/

I was embolden to look it up because you didn't underline it, so i thought it might not be extra true. Matt the Checker Player: I thought playing Chess was all about thinking a few moves ahead. You don't do that at all. What up with that?

Bobbo. You sacrifice pieces to set up a winning strategy. You don't simply trade pieces.

You really don't know how to play chess at all do you?
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

In chess, a sacrifice is a move giving up a piece with the objective of gaining tactical or positional compensation in other forms. A sacrifice could also be a deliberate exchange of a chess piece of higher value for an opponent's piece of lower value.

Sacrifice (chess)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacrifice_(chess)

Now Matt. I tried to be as gentle as possible knowing what a weak and fragile ego you have. I warned you to "think ahead." So....you went to wiki and looked up sacrifice but stomped your little Ellard Feet and refused to look one move ahead and look up trading. You do recognize other people can do that..........right? Evidently not.

Trading Pieces (chess)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exchange_(chess)

In the tactics and strategy in the board game of chess, an exchange (exchanging) or trade (trading) of chess pieces is series of closely related moves, typically sequential, in which the two players capture each other's pieces.

You really are stuck on your own first draft. Chess players know to look for the obvious response........other than lying about what it is. Try it.

You really are being silly. Its why I have any interest at all in your nonsense. No one else does it....more than about 3-4 times. You appear to have nothing else to offer. Amusing.

Now...........you used wiki to prove there was no such thing as trading pieces in chess. I used wiki to prove there is such a thing. This is way beyond you but it is the Higher Court of Chess Stratagems or Gambits. Must I point out you are committing forgery with these plagiarisms? I know........see what it looks like Teflon Ellard?

Dare I say.....................your move?

No Bobbo, i simply posted that fist time after informing you that trading pieces results in a draw,, I know how to play chess and you don't :lol: :lol:

Bobbo, the title of that page is "Exchange (Chess)" and not "Trading (Chess)". You faked the title. :lol: :lol:

What you said was trading pieces was not a chess term or procedure. Don't you remember?.....Would that be forgery or what???

Yes..........I did not post the title of the wiki entry but more relevantly how the quoted material was relevant to your forgery. Why are you against relevant posts?..............Oh.........of course..............nevermind.

Poor Matt. Can't think one move ahead. Makes it hard to get beyond checkers.

I said "sacrifice" a piece which is a chess term
Sacrifice (chess)

You then forged a non-existant Wikipedia title and claimed you linked to a page saying

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exchange_(chess)
When is reality the page has a totally different title.

Gee Bobbo, that was your second forgery in less than a week. It is even funnier than you ask me an incoherent question about the "Supreme Court of Australia" which doesn't even exist. :lol: :lol:
