Blue Knight 9 (no. 2640), my cat DID beat me at chess!!!! Many years ago I played correspondence chess - yep, snail mail! I'd have up to 20 games at once. So I had little magnetic boards set up in a cupboard, each board with the current position from one game set up. I made a move in a particular game and sent the scoresheet off. A few days later I received the reply - mate!!!!! My board was set up with the wrong position. I couldn't work out why. Some weeks later I found my cat in the cupboard carefully pushing the pieces around with its paw. A few weeks later I got my revenge by beating the cat at tennis.
you abandon the game when you are losing.
you waste your time till your opponent won due to time expire. with this, your pride seem not affected so much.
2651: You play boncloud chess because you think that your king should lead his troops to battle.
