Looks like PDL is about to end with yet another position that could/should have been lost, converted into a solo.

Looks like your favourite outcome Jay, a co-operative two way draw. :o

If this game ends in a 2way France should be publicly shamed.

Round 3 finally ends with a surprise 2-way & it’s sad Round 4 isn’t going to happen, but thanks to all that contributed to the PDL games in which I participated, they were good.
Thanks again to Mike as well for putting it together. PDL was the first thing to create games even better than Classicist on PlayDip, for me at least.

That game featured a lot of missed opportunities by many of the players--all 7 were still alive at the end of 1911 and I thought there were 4 countries with good drawing chances--but France accepting the draw at the end was one of the all-time dumbest things I've ever seen. Was his monumentally stupid endgame error mental (turned down a forced solo on purpose) or tactical (didn't see how to force the solo)? Either way, terrible.

Yeah, and the problem with dumb stupid people is that they think the others were even more stupid.

:shock:

That 100% should be a French solo. There’s no good reason that it isn’t.

I suppose I'm just monumentally stupid. Thanks for everyone chiming in to agree!
