What does mean, when a player refuse to rematch ?

    I usually offer a rematch and almost always accept them. I understand people who don't rematch (like others have said, there are a variety of reasons). Having said that, it is kind of annoying when your opponent wins with White and doesn't give you a chance to even the score, but obviously it's optional so whatever.

    I used to demand five or six rematches after I lost to a lower rated player. Enough to gain back my rating points with interest. Then, one of these underrated patzers beat me again and again. 

    Funny. Sounds like you deserved it. ;)

    Of course I did.

    Once I stopped doing rematches it took all the anger out of my game. It lets me refresh my computer after a lagged out game to get better connections and also gives me time to regroup between matches. It also added a ton of hate notes in my note box the majority of which scolds me harshly for winning and running which i find hilarious, After all, the winners never leave a note.

    Players who refuse a rematch are jellyfish.

    I like to analyze my games after I play them, right away while fresh in mind.

    I don't ever rematch anyone because it diminishes the value of the first match. If you lost because you messed up that's your fault and you should be more careful - you don't deserve a rematch. If you won and you want to play me again - no, I must learn from my mistakes first.
