I have to pay that one .
They will play the accelerated Parham
And claim it beats everything.
They move their king back and forth 3 times and claim 3 move repetition.
they castle kingside and put the rook on e1 and king on h1.
You knock over your king accidently reaching for a piece and they claim a win because you resigned.
They claim an illegal move when you castle queenside.
Bishops change colors as they move along the diagonal
Knight suddenly move in strange L shapes. both bigger and smaller.
They claim winning chances with a bare king
They have or know someone that has a secret opening that can beat anyone.
They have never lost a game before.
true stories! Coaching kids I have heard all these and more.
Tim beau...lighten up mate...just a bit of fun!
You'll feel bad after a few games of killing them and let them win.
They will insist that they have seen someone checkmate with only a king and bishop and will gladly try for hours to create such a mate.
They will think rook=queen
They are chess jokes, they're hardly going to be sidesplitting.
lol, yeah, that sounds like beginner chess kids :)
