It’s been going on for quite a while, but it’s almost over. A lot has been lost, but a lot has also been gained. I go; he doesn’t see what I am doing. I take out his queen and fork him; his knight and rook are at risk of being taken. He moves his knight and takes out yet another pawn, so I counter with taking his rook. Yet again, I fork him; he has to choose between a knight and a bishop. When he moves his knight, I know that the game is over. I take his bishop and put him in check. When he moves out of check, I move my rook and put him in check mate. I am victorious; I congratulate him on a game well-played.
