illusive_guy

To be fair, if my chess board was set up like this, I’d probably make that same face.


wombatwanders

You mean you don't arrange the pieces in height order? Amateur.


Kryds

And starts out with two queens.


secretWolfMan

and let your opposing team have a rook and knight on the front row for some fucked reason.


Davosown

Probably to balance out her extra piece. Or two pieces, pretty sure one of the pawns is missing in the front row.


Kryds

It's in front on the right.


IAmInside

Yeah, they both have the regular pieces plus an extra queen each. Lmao, they must've bought a chess set that included an extra queen for promotions but they didn't know that and just set up all the pieces including the extra queen.


TheBarracuda

There's an app called 'really bad chess' that sets up pieces similar to this. Both your and the PC have varying amounts of pieces set up whichever way it feels like. You'll have pawns in the back row, 2 queens up front, 4 bishops... It's fun


delta77

I'm into this. Not because I need to change my chess game to keep it interesting, but because I have zero chess game and I might actually be able to play this twisted version of the game. At least I'll have the luck of the layout to blame for losing all the time, not to mention I can regularly throw a bewildered expression like the posted photo.


jeobleo

Same kind of people who arrange books by color.


NapClub

yeah i mean... she's probably trying to figure out why it's set up like that. seems to completely lack any rhyme or reason. and white has an extra piece? lol


MechDevEngiNerd

Both sides have an extra queen. I don't know why.


gman2093

They are in the box so they must start on the board. I call it the 2Q960


shoks1987

I didn’t notice that at first. Good catch.


ImATrevosaurus

Good catch? My guy it’s the reason this post was even made lol


quebecivre

As a non-chess-playing person, I just assumed it was the huge amounts of likes for her not all interesting post that's obviously just an excuse to show cleavage.


elementarydrw

To be honest I didn't notice the set up... I noticed the extra piece. Then I noticed the set up after.


T0Rtur3

What did you notice at first? nvm..


CrazyWulf2019

lol. there are 2 queen pieces too. my brain hurts after looking at this chess setup.


boooo1

and the queen cant move over all the pawns... not allowed ...


Deep_Menu_524

Pff, looks like *somebody* didn’t buy the season pass which came with the move upgrades dlc *and* missed out on the bonus queen for the preorder. Filthy casual.


Ingelokastimizilian

I briefly exhaled through my nose reading this. Thank you.


quasi_aesthetic

Ah, the old betmn. The neglected cousin of lol. Can we mainstream this? It's way more accurate.


barflett

This made me betmn. I’m doing my part!


dispo030

I'm with you on that one.


chimthegrim

I got the Fat Princess DLC.. why didn't I get the bonus queen?


LuckoftheFryish

The entire white backrow is still full too...


Zorops

There's a knight in the rook position as well.


MorganaLeFaye

It looks like the entire back row was set up from shortest to tallest piece. From (our) left to right, it looks like the white pieces go knight x2, rook x2, bishop x2 and the queen and king. Even more mind boggling is how they've set up the black pieces.


briefperfectionnerd

She fucking assembled them according to their heights, I'm dying. and I had to see this only when I am doubting my chess skills


SaltyRusnPotato

Tell that to the kid who beat me in chess in 2 moves in 3rd grade because he claimed the queen can hop over over one piece per move, this giving him checkmate on the first turn.


thiskid415

Check out the game Really Bad Chess. It generates random pieces and placements. So I've played games where both myself and my opponent had 6 queens and only 2 pawns among other changes.


CrazyWulf2019

hah, that's really interesting. I will have to look into that more.


Cessnaporsche01

Also check out r/anarchychess


TaraReidsBra

This post was made for that sub


runtimemess

That's called the queens gambit haven't you ever watched the show you uncultured swine


Desktop_Punisher

everything is misplaced too


thegroovemonkey

And both sides are set up differently. Black has a knight in the front row.


30minstochooseaname

She's ordered the whites by height


RealMachoochoo

They're dating :)


corhen

The fact that there are two queens suggests she put this together as a joke, even if it's not being taken as one!


elmonoenano

You have to be a pretty good planner to get two queens.


hambakmeritru

Don't ever download the app Really Bad Chess. It's fantastic. There's no rules to what game pieces or how many you will get in a game. Different levels of difficulty are with different kinds of pieces. ...but even still, a queen can't jump over pieces.


Sandal-Hat

Can't screw up having queen on its own color if you start with two of them next to eachtoher


ILoveRealTeachers

Yes, there are ◤¬ ˒̫̮ ¬◥


OK6502

Maybe like how MTG players have all sorts of different kinds of alternate rules/setups maybe there's something like this for chess players.


Iwillcommentevrywhr

I think they arrange it in increasing order lol


dcboy2

Using 17 pieces each also… so much going on


ssb_ngp

Let’s ignore the fact that pieces are arranged according to their heights!!


CastleOfBravo

The look on her face does not say careful, cautious or even confident. She looks like a deer in headlights.


mossling

She looks like she just got an unexpected finger up the bum.


Deep_Menu_524

She looks like the deer who’s looking at the deer in the headlights…what’s left of them anyway…


AllPurple

Which is odd because it seems she has access to 2 reasonably nice chess sets...


Previous-Shoulder989

Is that what the kids are calling them these days?


FullMetalJ

Chest set


HuntPsychological673

That last what I was thinking🤔. Looks like she’s got too many pieces on the board, but nice cleavage! 👍


wheres_my_swingline

Not to mention that the pieces are set up incorrectly lol


DiscussionLoose8390

Lol, and how hard she look like she is concentrating. Like she is making a critical move when it doesn't even matter because the board is not setup right.


Meapst3r

I...wha...NO! This so wrong on so many levels!


frosty1104

When you try to play chess after the queens gambit but you’ve never seen a game in real life.


partypantaloons

And also never saw Queens Gambit, where you see the board set up multiple times in each episode.


michel210883

There are two visible items which got the likes


AloneAddiction

Yes, the fact she's playing with two fucking Queens!


2001herne

While I missed that, the caption "planning my moves" also makes no sense; she has touched a piece and is therefore committed to moving that piece.


AloneAddiction

Plus her board setup isn't even correct either. It's like somebody genuinely didn't know how to set a chess board up just put pieces there at random, just for the photo op.


2001herne

Kinda reminds me of the "Women in stem" promo photo, where she's holding the hot end of a soldering iron. It's almost certainly a photographer/shoot directors decision, why do they screw them over so much?


alan-the-all-seeing

also stock models rather than engineers


mulans_goat

I have no idea how to arrange a chess board, I don't know what the pieces do, and I never learned how to play. HOWEVER! I would also not post a picture of me pretending to play a game I haven't the first clue about


Molwar

It's not just that it's not setup properly, 2 queens means she went out of her way to get piece from a different chess set also.... My brain hurt just looking at that board and the cleavage doesn't help.


quiet_earp

But the cleavage isn't even that great...at all! It's certainly nowhere near the level where I could overlook the sheer nonsense on the chessboard.


kd3906

Agree! My butt has better cleavage.


010011010001010

Looking at the fact that black also has 2 queens I'd assume this set actually came with one more of each, which actually is not a bad idea as it is the piece that you would promote if you cross the board. Seems like it's the only thing that isn't a face palm


Ganbario

Lots of sets come with two queens for pawn promotion


Molwar

Fair enough, I've yet to see one that did but I'll take your word on that. (Have owned 4-5 set in my life)


PappyBlueRibs

But you don't have to promote to a queen, you get a choice. Sure, most select a queen, but it isn't automatic.


velowalker

Really mentally mess with your opponent by selecting another pawn.


kenatogo

This isn't legal AFAIK, you must promote


shama_llama_ding_don

The chess board orientation isn't correct either. The bottom right corner should be white. https://assets.dicebreaker.com/chess-setup-layout.png/BROK/resize/1920x1920%3E/format/jpg/quality/80/chess-setup-layout.png


wwwhistler

they set up the board 90 degrees off. and whoever set it up has never seen a game played. there are at least 4 critical mistakes in this picture. maybe more.


_dogtown_

Not random. By friggin’ height left to right. Gaaah!


tracerhoosier

Could forgive the back row setup if they were playing Chess 960, or Fischer chess, but even then you don't start the game with two queens. Also in chess 960, your back row mirrors your opponent which isn't happening here, either.


African_Farmer

I thought we were supposed to spot that the line of pawns were still intact


Neirchill

You can't move a different piece of you've already touched one? I always thought as long as you didn't move it from its space and let go (as in, you could move it back to its original position if you never let go) it was all good?


A-le-Couvre

It's not just that. Why are there 2 queens? And also for the black side? Why has black 16 pieces, and white 17? Why has black a king, 2 queens, 2 rooks, 2 horses and 2 bisshops? That means theres 1 pawn that's missing. Why did they put all the pawns in the correct location for white, but put a horse in the front row for black? Where does the white queen come from? This is the beginning move isn't it? Sorry, I'm in a stickler mood.


MisteeLoo

Because boobs.


biggeektx

Multiple queens, wrong starting formation, impossible current board position… This is someone who has never played a single game of chess.


doodleysquat

Nevermind that, she’s starting with 17 pieces.


BrickTop_44

And a wrong starting formation


LadyWeasel_

wrong everything


boooo1

and you cant move a queen over pawns... thats not allowed


Important-Price9416

Not with that attitude


O2XXX

If it wasn’t an Instagram post you could argue she’s playing chess960. Obviously she’s not, but there are variations of the game that don’t have the uniform starting position.


cardboard-kansio

And do they have the pieces on the back row arranged in order of height?


Korchagin

But it's fair - black has two queens, too.


michel210883

Hehe also true, but don’t think this got the likes though ;-)


gsuhrie

I’d say it was chest, not chess, that got her the likes.


dario_larin

Can I cross post this to r/anarchychess ?


chris_ngale

ngl I thought that was where this was until I saw your comment that explains the severe deficit of pipi


pricklymuffin-

Yep


OJStrings

This must have been a joke. They would've had to go out of their way to put together a chess board with too many queens.


SuperMark12345

Look at all the comments in here. The insta post is doing exactly what they intended it to do.


OJStrings

You could say they carefully, cautiously planned their move.


BadSmash4

Did she just 3D chess us?!?!!


sheepcat87

The post is clearly designed to force engagement which helps up her profile visibility for other avenues to make money. Social media has put the weak link in human psyche on full display and we're all being exploited constantly.


Hioneqpls

This is what I’m thinking too. Its pretty good too.


DiabloAcosta

My thoughts exactly everyone's like "look how dumb she is" while I am like "How do you even get two white queens by accident, this obviously planned!" But you know, it's easier to just make fun of her for being an idiot 🤦‍♂️


laurabland

You’re so right. I’ve seen this so many times. Some people need to be told something silly is a joke, her face alone scream I’m trying to be funny


RespecDawn

Yup. That chessboard at up in such a specifically awful way that I'm sure she knows chess, at least a little, and is having an excellent time trolling people.


Kesher123

Yep, pretty sure it is a joke to cause reaction, and it worked. So many people are oblivious to it.


gauderio

Some come with extra queens because you can promote pawns.


McJagged

Most chess boards come with 2 Queens for when you get your pawn to the opponent's first row


DeloresDelVeckio

Wonder if there would be as many likes if she was wearing a turtleneck sweater.


Ambition-Free

I literally can’t stand Instagram


quiet_earp

This one makes me irrationally angry. Even if I ignore the extra pieces and totally incorrect set-up, no one makes that expression playing chess. It’s just not that intense. And then what, we’re supposed to think you’re some diabolical, cunning individual because someone photographed you moving a chess piece? Yeah, I’m so intrigued! You must be very successful!!


derdast

Jesus it's clearly a joke. There are two queens, she would have to have gone out of her way to do that. Really weird thing to get angry about.


Binarytobis

I’m with you, this is a joke unless someone can prove otherwise. I’d like to see the rest of her IG to figure it out, but I’m glad it’s censored so she’s not getting swarmed by people like the ones in this thread, who didn’t even *consider* that a girl on IG might have a sense of humor.


Medical_Officer

I think people are Liking those two bishops robed in blue.


UlteraBurns

Are they arranged in order of height? Hahaha idiot


Sheogorath616

The only correct thing I can see in this picture is white going first. This is so annoying.


iTrollbot77

Nope.... look again. Bottom right. It appears black pawn has moved diagonal.


djany51

Even one like is to much, or can we send all the likers to space?


TrapperMC

“If you or anyone you know that have been harmed by this image, you may be entitled to compensation”


ABWoolls

It looks more like she had a wet fart than planning a move.


ThatWeirdGuy43

In white pants no less


cyderweb

You see chess, I see chest


Admiral_Jello

She literally had to go get a second chess set to be this wrong, wtf?


jonnymooshoo

Actually no... Some chess sets come with a second queen because it's the most likely piece you promote your pawn to.


dasgudshit

TIL my chess shop has been ripping me off


LOTHMT

-960 Chess (not mirrored) -Queen Jumps over Pawns -2 Queens -Standing while holding half the piece from above -Weird look I dont get why anyone would like this picture, theres nothing good at it.


iTrollbot77

Facepalm #1 - that facial expression does not exude the amount of confidence one needs to play chess. Facepalm #2 - moving your queen over a pawn Facepalm #3 - why is there 2 queens Facepalm #4 - why is nothing in order Facepalm #5 - how did black pawn move diagonal, with no missing white pieces to be seen Facepalm #5b - how would white even get to that position to be knocked out by a black pawn in its initial position on White's first move Facepalm #6 - what is this even promoting Facepalm #7 - I finally get it, I am not influenced to do my research before posting anything to the Internet. Well played. Well played. Pun intended.


SBCwarrior

Her cleavage isn't even that great, why so many likes?


rsspidey27

Well she is a Bollywood actress.


hungrypussy29

you are doing a favour by calling her an actress


thishitisgettingold

bro, it's Bollywood. You'd be doing all of them a favor by calling any of the mainstream personalities "actor" or "actress". it's a cesspool of nepotism and no GOD damn artistic talent.


Hayabusa71

Tits are visible = likes


nthroop1

She really got another queen from a separate set out


jonnymooshoo

Actually no, some chess sets come with two queens for pawn promotion.


DecoherentDoc

Setting the board up the right way might be a good start.


MultiTopicAgain

Literally the only thing that is correct here is the fucking white pawns.


Karl-o-mat

There is so much wrong with this picture


Nbkipdu

How does someone never get exposed to chess like this??? I don't play chess, I'm not good at chess, and I have never beaten the computer on any chess video game. But I can set up the fucking board at least.


psycoptipath52

I’m not even a chess enthusiast and this hurts my soul


Subhumanoid_

Alright this is going on r/AnarchyChess


NappyJose3

It’s pretty hard to plan your next move when you have no idea what you are doing


Aromatic_Ad_5157

The wayy .. the pieces are arranged .. just awakens my OCD .. and also as a chess player , who is at a decent level .. but I will be calm and collected to say "it is what it is "


ZCHSR88

How the hell does she have two queens? This should be on cringe as well.


jonnymooshoo

Actually no, some chess sets come with two queens for pawn promotion


ZCHSR88

Did not know that! I’ve only played on a small antique set my dad had that folded up and each piece had its own slot.


Wookieman222

Tell me you know nothing about chess, without saying you know nothing about chess.


Frogs4

It can't be that hard to set up a board, there's only one correct way.


Unusual-Quality-6412

Someone doesn't know how to set up a Chess board haha.


DoneYearsAgo

Umm, I don’t play chess but those pieces are not correct


Callinon

I mean... if you're going to stage a shot like this, might it not be a *little* smart to at least look up how to set up a Chess board?


Gumbo-Froehn

Nice how all the white figures are sorted by size from left to right. 200 IQ move


infinitbullets

Who the fuck set that board up


Scheswalla

This is so bad that I'm thinking it was done on purpose as a troll. I'd have to see the original post/profile for confirmation.


f133

does no one here play fischer 960?


boxing_gloves5

This picture gets better and better the longer you look.


darkwatersinking

Carefully planning where to put the starting pieces.


madzterdam

“The longer you look..”


ACrask

Too many pieces Not setup correctly Her *planned move* to find a reason to show cleavage and get likes was a success however


ztevobrew

She's playing Chess 960 you casuals


Zenist289

It's just chess 960 on one side


NotYou_42

Obviously, they’re not golfers.


thetrueTrueDetective

Starting with two queens on the board is a pretty big advantage , especially for white. Picture says more that this dumb shit thinks.


iKSv2

Yeah the board's messed up Yeah tits are visible. Although the likes are.from those dudes for whom this person was the reason for first few boners / orgasms first thing they remember when one says wet lips .

I_Love_58008

Read that back to me daddy.


Vehkseloth

A good game of chest


NoelRahlis7

at first i was like, "ehh some influencer just posting" then i saw the board.


RK800-50

She‘s used to carry her Smartphone everywhere. She‘s used to know more about it‘s functions than I do (I bet). Why doesn‘t she freaking google how to set up a chess board?! This is triggering on too many levels.


epicjimmyneutron

god look at her eyes


gabe_cruz98

My favorite part is that she has all 16 pieces, yet she is holding a 17th piece


lunaticPandora027

This chess board is irritating.


SlOwMosis

The setup is one thing…the 17 pieces she plays with an entire new level of ignorance


rrpdude

Aside from the pieces, that look is what really sells it. She looks like she's actually scared of playing an actual game.


Stumphead101

Fuck a 3rd grader knows how to set up a board better than this Fucking just google it


Shadow_108

Is it just me or does she have one more piece than the other player?


Prabh1212

She didn't even set it up properly this is infuriating


Sanganitor

Is nobody infuriated by the way these pieces are set up?


McJagged

She just bought her first chess set and didn't realize the second queen was for when your pawn makes it across the board. What did she think this would gain her?


goodwc72

Ahh yes. The timeless classic of 2 queen chess.
