    Nunca escuche la expresion "tremendo trabajo", asi que no podria haber sabido que significa "tt", asi que no es verdad que cualquier hablante nativo de español podria saber instintivamente que significa "tt".

    La frase usual es "buen juego".

    The usual phrase before or after a game in spanish is "buen juego". I would have never known what means "tt", and I´m an spanish native speaker.

    I try my best to say "good game" after everygame, regardless of whether or not I win or lose, or if my opponent says it. However, it does not ruin my day if my opponent does not say it.

    That's because you are not from Cuba, or Miami, brah.  There are many phrases that you probably have never heard.

    You said this: "but any native Spanish speaker will instintively understand the "tt"."

     And that´s not true.

    So, chess is the ONE thing folks have going for them?

       Well, because it is really about egos.

    I do that too.

    Unfortunately, most of them are either quiet, which is miles better than telling me I suck (regardless of who wins). 

    Whether you win or lose let's not turn this into xbox live. Please.

    Chess players by large are anti-social pricks. At least that is what I have observed... perhaps some of that is robbing off on chess.com

    There have been many debates here on: gg, rematches, not trash talking -- all in all you will find that most of people here that play chess have some sort of enormous ego that cannot be fulfilled even if they played on the level of Carlson. I just played a game and blundered, whatever I’m not GM (neither is the opponent) I glance at the chat box and I see “you suck!” … whatever blocked the prick and moved on.

     

    OP - this does not mean that you have to stop at some point you will come across a person that will respond kindly, I have done so too many. If they type Hi I type back Hi :)

    If the player is cool enough to throw few games I will always type ggs at the end of last game indicating I'm done and thanks for playing.

    Wow who do you guys play...I do not think I have ever seen a "you suck" message on chess.com.

    I have seen, many many times, people who abandon games after a blunder, leaving me sitting there staring at a clock. This is my only complaint about the site, I think it needs to be fixed somehow.

    I used to say "gg" and I also suck just like the original poster... but now that I suck a bit less I often realize I lost or won because of blunder, not because either one of played well. So I think it would be offensive to say gg after opponents blunder, and then I say nothing. If we could shake hands I would.

    I always say gg after, well, good game.

    Sportsmanship comes only from well leadership either you win or loose, but onlycares for the person who deserves to do hard work to beat another  leaderbord person.  Hotels in manali    SEO india   Bpo in india

    For anyone to type anything in chat is pretty unusual, at least in 13xx rated blitz.  I put my hand out after every game I play. I assume my opponents do the same thing, but no way to tell for sure. Maybe we need to get video cameras involved. I'm working on a contraption that is supposed to simulate the handshake, but for now only delivers a painful electric shock.

       In OTB, real chess, it is common courtesy to acknowledge the opponent at the start and end of a game. 

    In FIDE OTB events, it is more than just common courtesy: "Any player who does not shake hands with the opponent (or greets the opponent in a normal social manner in accordance with the conventional rules of their society) before the game starts in a FIDE tournament or during a FIDE match (and does not do it after being asked to do so by the arbiter) or deliberately insults his/her opponent or the officials of the event, will immediately and finally lose the relevant game.

    Kramnik and Topolov get away without shaking each others hands or speaking to each other because neither wants to (they hate each other), and FIDE has informally decided that as long as both of them are OK with that, FIDE will let it slide.
