To be fair, if my chess board was set up like this, I’d probably make that same face.
You mean you don't arrange the pieces in height order?
And starts out with two queens.
and let your opposing team have a rook and knight on the front row for some fucked reason.
Probably to balance out her extra piece. Or two pieces, pretty sure one of the pawns is missing in the front row.
It's in front on the right.
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.
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
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.
Same kind of people who arrange books by color.
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
Both sides have an extra queen. I don't know why.
They are in the box so they must start on the board. I call it the 2Q960
I didn’t notice that at first. Good catch.
Good catch? My guy it’s the reason this post was even made lol
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.
To be honest I didn't notice the set up... I noticed the extra piece. Then I noticed the set up after.
What did you notice at first? nvm..
lol. there are 2 queen pieces too. my brain hurts after looking at this chess setup.
and the queen cant move over all the pawns... not allowed ...
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.
I briefly exhaled through my nose reading this. Thank you.
Ah, the old betmn. The neglected cousin of lol.
Can we mainstream this? It's way more accurate.
This made me betmn.
I’m doing my part!
I'm with you on that one.
I got the Fat Princess DLC.. why didn't I get the bonus queen?
The entire white backrow is still full too...
There's a knight in the rook position as well.
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.
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
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.
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.
hah, that's really interesting. I will have to look into that more.
Also check out r/anarchychess
This post was made for that sub
That's called the queens gambit haven't you ever watched the show you uncultured swine
everything is misplaced too
And both sides are set up differently. Black has a knight in the front row.
She's ordered the whites by height
They're dating :)
The fact that there are two queens suggests she put this together as a joke, even if it's not being taken as one!
You have to be a pretty good planner to get two queens.
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.
Can't screw up having queen on its own color if you start with two of them next to eachtoher
Yes, there are ◤¬ ˒̫̮ ¬◥
Maybe like how MTG players have all sorts of different kinds of alternate rules/setups maybe there's something like this for chess players.
I think they arrange it in increasing order lol
Using 17 pieces each also… so much going on
Let’s ignore the fact that pieces are arranged according to their heights!!
The look on her face does not say careful, cautious or even confident. She looks like a deer in headlights.
She looks like she just got an unexpected finger up the bum.
She looks like the deer who’s looking at the deer in the headlights…what’s left of them anyway…
When you're given a calculus test but still haven't figured out how to get the circle in the triangle hole.
Someone who has never played chess in their life.
Someone who has never seen chess in their life.
Someone who never has seen chess in their life.
Someone who has never seen chess in their life
Someone that owns 2 of the same chess sets and somehow completely fucked putting them away.
Someone who has only played chest in their life.
Which is odd because it seems she has access to 2 reasonably nice chess sets...
Is that what the kids are calling them these days?
That last what I was thinking🤔. Looks like she’s got too many pieces on the board, but nice cleavage! 👍
Not to mention that the pieces are set up incorrectly lol
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.
I...wha...NO! This so wrong on so many levels!
When you try to play chess after the queens gambit but you’ve never seen a game in real life.
And also never saw Queens Gambit, where you see the board set up multiple times in each episode.
There are two visible items which got the likes
Yes, the fact she's playing with two fucking Queens!
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.
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.
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?
also stock models rather than engineers
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
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.
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.
Agree! My butt has better cleavage.
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
Lots of sets come with two queens for pawn promotion
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)
But you don't have to promote to a queen, you get a choice. Sure, most select a queen, but it isn't automatic.
Really mentally mess with your opponent by selecting another pawn.
This isn't legal AFAIK, you must promote
The chess board orientation isn't correct either. The bottom right corner should be white.
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.
Not random. By friggin’ height left to right. Gaaah!
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.
I thought we were supposed to spot that the line of pawns were still intact
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?
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.
Multiple queens, wrong starting formation, impossible current board position…
This is someone who has never played a single game of chess.
Nevermind that, she’s starting with 17 pieces.
And a wrong starting formation
and you cant move a queen over pawns... thats not allowed
Not with that attitude
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.
And do they have the pieces on the back row arranged in order of height?
But it's fair - black has two queens, too.
Hehe also true, but don’t think this got the likes though ;-)
I’d say it was chest, not chess, that got her the likes.
Can I cross post this to r/anarchychess ?
ngl I thought that was where this was until I saw your comment
that explains the severe deficit of pipi
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.
Look at all the comments in here. The insta post is doing exactly what they intended it to do.
You could say they carefully, cautiously planned their move.
Did she just 3D chess us?!?!!
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.
This is what I’m thinking too. Its pretty good too.
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 🤦♂️
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
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.
Yep, pretty sure it is a joke to cause reaction, and it worked. So many people are oblivious to it.
Some come with extra queens because you can promote pawns.
Most chess boards come with 2 Queens for when you get your pawn to the opponent's first row
Wonder if there would be as many likes if she was wearing a turtleneck sweater.
I literally can’t stand Instagram
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!!
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.
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.
I think people are Liking those two bishops robed in blue.
Are they arranged in order of height? Hahaha idiot
The only correct thing I can see in this picture is white going first. This is so annoying.
Nope.... look again. Bottom right. It appears black pawn has moved diagonal.
Even one like is to much, or can we send all the likers to space?
“If you or anyone you know that have been harmed by this image, you may be entitled to compensation”
It looks more like she had a wet fart than planning a move.
In white pants no less
You see chess, I see chest
She literally had to go get a second chess set to be this wrong, wtf?
Actually no... Some chess sets come with a second queen because it's the most likely piece you promote your pawn to.
TIL my chess shop has been ripping me off
-960 Chess (not mirrored)
-Queen Jumps over Pawns
-Standing while holding half the piece from above
I dont get why anyone would like this picture, theres nothing good at it.
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.
Her cleavage isn't even that great, why so many likes?
Well she is a Bollywood actress.
you are doing a favour by calling her an actress
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.
Tits are visible = likes
She really got another queen from a separate set out
Actually no, some chess sets come with two queens for pawn promotion.
Setting the board up the right way might be a good start.
Literally the only thing that is correct here is the fucking white pawns.
There is so much wrong with this picture
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.
I’m not even a chess enthusiast and this hurts my soul
Alright this is going on r/AnarchyChess
It’s pretty hard to plan your next move when you have no idea what you are doing
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 "
How the hell does she have two queens? This should be on cringe as well.
Actually no, some chess sets come with two queens for pawn promotion
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.
Tell me you know nothing about chess, without saying you know nothing about chess.
It can't be that hard to set up a board, there's only one correct way.
Someone doesn't know how to set up a Chess board haha.
Umm, I don’t play chess but those pieces are not correct
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?
Nice how all the white figures are sorted by size from left to right. 200 IQ move
Who the fuck set that board up
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.
does no one here play fischer 960?
This picture gets better and better the longer you look.
Carefully planning where to put the starting pieces.
“The longer you look..”
Too many pieces
Not setup correctly
Her *planned move* to find a reason to show cleavage and get likes was a success however
She's playing Chess 960 you casuals
It's just chess 960 on one side
Obviously, they’re not golfers.
Starting with two queens on the board is a pretty big advantage , especially for white. Picture says more that this dumb shit thinks.
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 .
Official poster for The Queens Gambit 2: Check Materer directed by Michael Bay
It gets worse the longer you look.
What a fucking moron.
Read that back to me daddy.
A good game of chest
at first i was like, "ehh some influencer just posting" then i saw the board.
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.
god look at her eyes
My favorite part is that she has all 16 pieces, yet she is holding a 17th piece
This chess board is irritating.
The setup is one thing…the 17 pieces she plays with an entire new level of ignorance
Aside from the pieces, that look is what really sells it. She looks like she's actually scared of playing an actual game.
Fuck a 3rd grader knows how to set up a board better than this
Fucking just google it
Is it just me or does she have one more piece than the other player?
She didn't even set it up properly this is infuriating
Is nobody infuriated by the way these pieces are set up?
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?
Ahh yes. The timeless classic of 2 queen chess.
