    They will play the accelerated Parham

    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.

    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.
