    B and C aren't a won game. A doesn't even make sense.

    When you think to yourself, "muhahaha, I've got the opposition and this is won" (only to lose the opposition on the next move when your opponent moves his king and puts you in zugzwang). Cry

    That doesn't even make sense. The opposition cannot be taken and then lost in 1 move.

    How long have you felt this way?

    Not even in distant indirect opposition?

    Not a half move.

    Haha, I had B happen to me.  Suddenly my opponent sits up straight... and after a few minutes plays a move that hangs his knight while staring intently at the board... and I then notice he has a fancy little mate in 3... crap.  So I had to resign Cry

    There are many ways for one to lose the opposition -- for example, in a hypothetical position, a white king keeps shuffling to the right just as the black counterpart does to maintain the opposition, but then suddenly the white king gets blocked by his own pawn and can't move to the square he needs to maintain the opposition.

    Granted, assuming both kings are on the queenside, white can always choose to outflank on that side for every move that he has the opposition -- however, perhaps all of the action is on the kingside, and by the time white gets there, he has to give it up due to reasons given above, something of that nature.

    he said move the king, not a pawn.

    [Edit, oops this isn't a win, but you get the idea]

    Right -- the timing is fine; the problem is, the d4 square is simply covered, so white can't play Kd4 to maintain the opposition.
