I have recently begun playing on the live chess site. I'm sure this has been covered many times, but please show some class. If you are lost, resign and say good game. I'm sick of having a won position and then having to wait for minutes after you sign off. We are here to play chess - when you have been outplayed, admit it and resign. Chess shoud be a gentleman's/gentlewoman's game. Act like an adult.
My only advice is play OTB, if they act like a moron, just punch em in the parking lot...
hopefully you'll get a good funt in the ass in return!
I am always amused by people who think if someone can mop the floor with them in a chess game, that it automatically means that that couldn't in some other way also....
You never know, the person could be a chess-boxer and really polite too...
you never really know!!!!
If you feel the need to talk about ''class''.
Then you don't have any !
Good point! Or, should I just say "gp" ...
winning positions not always win..there will always defense resources..U might overlook n understimate ur opp when u are winning..but remember the game is a test of psychology too..the opp that under pressure are now 200%!! more cautious n alert than before. It happens all the time. ITs not about skills only..just look at master games when a winning position can be lost..U may lose on time..
Odd advice coming from a moron....
I wouldn't call it advice.
My pinky is always raised when castling.
Not only do I say "adjust" if I accidentally touch a piece, I say it in French!
When castling I determine which finger to raise based on the level of class displayed by my adversary. I like dealing with people in their comfort zones.
A real man of the people.
NO CLASS gentlemens/womens..! only chaotic games!
Well, it is hard to blame noclass for being antagonized by this thread.
haha true, i feel alone against all..
