Here is a game i just played against my highest apponent yet. How do you think I played?
Also my apponent saw that they was in an unavoidable checkmate and didnt move just let the clock run for about 12 minutes. Is this normal ?
Then they sent me a message saying i took too long to move.
I think i would rather Win slow than loose fast!!
A looser sore I have seldom seen.
Really nice miniature, going to keep this one on my collection, I love miniatures.
About the other player leting the time run down, yes it is common. This website have try to discorage people to do that, implementing the fair game rules. Still I find people doing this a lot. And also find lost of people coming to the forum complaining that they get punished by the fair game rules "for not reason".
I have set an option of "premove". This is very useful on fast games, couse I can say what I want to move, before the other player moves, so when the other player moves, if the move I premove is legal then it just play it. Also useful for those games at 1 move mate. Some times they come back to the game, hoping that you get distracted by something else, and move, hoping you are no longer there your time runs down. The premove mate is ready, when they come back, they get the mate, and I am no there paying attention no more.
Thanks for the analysis ChristianSoldier007.
And htdavidht i never knew about the premove function. thanks for telling me about it. Also if you like miniatures than check out my other post of a david bronstein 8 move game its really cool!
I liked ur clearance sacrfice to create two passed pawns. I will add that to my strategy.
