    Sasha Baron Cohen sings for a far right rally in Washington state. It is pretty offensive, and the crowd loves it.

    I cannot do that, I cannot even mate a King with two bishop, and out of thousands of game I've play, I never have the oportunity to do that also. End game is really boring.

    Yeah, it's very rarely needed in practice. I studied it some time ago, but not sure I didn't forget it. Remember though, how to play for weak side.
    Of course neither of top-10 grandmasters would fail to do it. I've seen even a more difficult variant, where Karyakin mates with just two knights (it's possible when the opponent also has a pawn).

    After knowing how all the pieces move, my father teach me how to mate a king, start with two rooks, one queen, one rook, then with two bishop, and I never graduated from that point.

    I like the complication and combination in chess during opening and mid game. I just found it incredibly beautiful:

    The highlight of my playing competition chess as a teenager was winning with a smother mate.
    It was almost as exciting as when the "manager" of my team punched my opponent in the face when he cursed me for not accepting an offer of a draw in a game. :)

    The graphic is "beautiful" in a strange way. But dang the artist seems to has a serious obsession with hands. His game cost between 1-2usd at steam with a positive review.
