    Arrogance, and a big ego... bullet is known for its "don't resign" mentality. Clear as mountain water that this thread is a "I've got it longer than you" tirade.

    So you are so annoyed by an opponent who in bullet (bullet!) prolongs the game for a couple of moves (mating a king is not difficult is it?), but then proceed to play 100 useless moves to show off. Not only that, you then share the games in the forums ... and then you confirm my comment with yours.

    Then they say that a good chess player is also intelligent. I think there's no correlation.

    My intelligence is far beyond yours, Sir.

    And the proof is this machoman attitude? Well, Arnold the Terminator is known for a lot of things, but certainly not for intelligence.

    But you deny the winner his victory when you resign. It's the cowards way out. In real chess you're never allowed to resign, you play until there is a clear victor or you end up in stalemate. If you're losing at chess, you might as well take the loss and be a man about it rather than running away.

    I laughed when I read your original post...

    Your actions were despicable and the act of a true blithering fool.  You disrespected the game of chess by choosing to demonstrate a lack of honor in this match.

    Furthermore, not only did you lack the aforethought to avoid being dishonorable, you made the wrong decision by choosing to post it for all to see.  In a sense, you are proclaiming that you are a moron who lacks any understanding of the honorable nature of chess as a game that has been played for Centuries.

    Let your foolish ways serve as a lesson to all who read this post...  the actions that he has highlighted here are dishonorable and shameful.

    Never resign and always fight to the bitter end.  To do anything less against such a dishonorable player is to disgrace your ancestors.  Fight on and no game shall be a loss.

    These are the words of the almighty Zod.

     

    Praise be to Zod.  Kneel Before Zod.

    Besides, everyone with any level of true intelligence knows that Bullet Chess is for morons.

    The highest form of Chess on Chess.com or any online site is the standard 5|0 Blitz Chess.

    5|0 Blitz Chess provides enough time to think but does not allow for one to study the board for an infinite period of time.  It is the highest form of chess.  Anyone who disagrees is a moron.  It's that simple.

    Zod has spoken... so it is true.

    Now then...  I would say that you are not a good 5|0 Blitz Chess player and therefore, you are not a good chess player at all.  While keeping to your Bullet BS, let it be known that one can never become a truly great chess player by playing such a childish and mindless form of chess such as Bullet 1|0.  It is a format befitting of morons.

    Those are my words... Accept it as the law.  KNEEL BEFORE ZOD

    Did you really called yourself Zod and then write "Kneel before Zod"?

    When your opponent writes Chuck Norris as his name on your score sheet, it's time to resign!

    OP: your technique was off in the first game. Rook should end at h8, not h7. Tsk tsk.

    Also, was the dsb via promotion. 

    I guess some have a player at the local club who never resigns, hmmn only one pawn exchange possible so not easy even at longer or no time controls.
