If playing black, do you find if your opponent opens with the 4-move mate offensive? It kind of annoys me. I've been playing chess a long time, and they think I've never come across it? I was wondering if anyone else feels the same way.
A typical 4-move game...
If you see it, be happy, they are going to loose.
I find it very offensive for someone to try this opening. It basically connotes that they do not respect your chess-playing abilities at all. However, if they want to lose by playing bad openings, they can.
no as a chess player they can play whatever opening they want its up to them its not against the rules and it is just dumb on their part and i have always loved being under estimated being the underdog is awesome
