My wife came in and got me all excited and I hit the wrong button.....
I was drunk & cannot remember anything so no point asking me ?
My old standby excuse: man i was about to really get ready to crush you , if i had not gotten CHECKMATED you would have been in real trouble !
Our favorite OTB excuse !
I pretend to act upset that I dropped a piece... so they take it happy i am distressed and losing. then I reveal it was a sac, and proceed to mate :)
I couldn't tell the difference between the queen and the king.
When I get crushed early: "Unlike you I don't need to remember opening lines"
Bobby Fisher did not make excuses when he lost as a kid growing up in Brooklyn, He just started Crying !!
When I run out of time: "I made better moves earlier"
I have actually had that. But perhaps not as many times as I have claimed...
Chess? Oooohhh...I thought we were playing draughts!!
Oh baby oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ... YA ! What? I dropped a piece?! Sorry, someone Distracted me ...
i was calculating 10 moves ahead
I woulda won if coulda had white.
My dog ate my brain.
"I saw that coming when I misclicked ten moves back. I just wanted to make sure that you could see it."
Yup, I've heard that one before!
"I underestimated you." Heard it about a dozen time from one guy. Thrashed him mercilessly.
Being fairly honest I just say ''ooops'' ( but sometimes delay incase never seen... :)
Its not about winning or loseing, its about ghetting your king to the otheir side man.
