    What would happen if white played rook to D4 at the end instead of resigning? It seems like he could do a rook trade or win the bishop and a pawn after check.

    May I suggest that Levon not play a Ruy Lopez in game 4? Literally any Italian attack line, a Scotch, A sideline in the QGD. Many more aggressive openings are possible. If GMs are constantly drawing these games, why would you play this when looking for a win? He lost a drawish opening with white..... makes my point even stronger.

What a donation :'( That Bitcoin will be worth six digits in less than two years, hold on tight to it and never sell it but high in order to accumulate even more in low entries. How I wished that mystery guy changed my life... I've found out about Bitcoin not less than 6 months ago, and I own just some 'toshis. U are very lucky guy buddy.. your viewers have principles and not greeed, the likes of other new Bitcoin investors who won't give away to change some'one's life 1$ worth of their investment done in 2009-2011. That's a shame and I feel low due to that.. losing faith in humanity. I wished I was in the position of someone who bought BTC in it's inception, in order to change other's life's who come from shitty third world counties and understand how rare Bitcoin is. #Money of People #BITCOIN 1PEcfn2PGoJTqhRNb9xchaCwJZGWw72hSj [ Mystery guy... if you read this comment, please consider changing someone's life and maybe next generations to come. I'm sure as I'll sunlight tomorrow I'll never sell Bitcoin but regaining my position and accumulating even more.. and hopefully paying you public keys back as soon as possible. also, everyone who trades Bitcoin or is just crazy like me contemplating it's price movement stay updated at this link.
