Can pears go fuzz?
Why I never turn down a re-match..wouldn't think of it..even if I cud think...Nope not me!, not in a million years..Ain't in me ta' turn down nuth'in..Nope never, never had, never will..Shows bad character, no backbone I declare!
Nope, not me!
Buffalo or Lemon-Pepper?
An occasional non-rematch is fine. But if on a regular basis you get rejected for rematches, then it could be you are considered a nematode.
The best cure for that is to learn to play better...much better. And never say anything, especially smack talk, except "Have a nice game" at the opening and "Thanks for the game" at the end.
And, when you start winning a lot, the nematodes will start begging YOU for a rematch. In which case, always say: "I'm busy now. Try me again next Tuesday."
If you always want a rematch, play team matches and stop complaining...
Have a nice day !!!
Perhaps they found the game not satisfying enough so figure their chances are better with the next random opponent.
Chess is like life. Life is not fair. Therefore, the trick is just learn to live with it. Abe Lincoln said, "If you look for the good in people, you will surely find it." Click on "open seek" and find another game. Life is too short and time is precious. Share what you enjoy with others and make the world brighter for those who may not have had the chance to play with you before. We all learn from each new encounter.

Just to add my thought ( ofc if there is + or - option for comments i expect here a lot of - )- it means that he is not real chess player and never will be and same is for donkeys which play R vs R or Q vs Q with no other material ( ofc except K ).
You demand a rematch and when your opponent politely declines you take it personally and again beg for a rematch. Then you begin to type insults, not even noticing that your opponent has already signed off and went on with his life, never thinking of you or the game you played again.
Better question is : what does it mean when a player refuse to rematch . But story start when i win first game he ask for rematch and when he win second game for 1:1 i ask rematch but 90% of donkeys here with over 100 rating points less runaway because now they are earn 6-7-8 rating points !
I agree. This raises a counter-question:
What does it mean when a player cares too much about a rematch?
I just want to get your point of view about this situation.
What does mean, when a player refuses to rematch on rated game ?
I ask this question because 97% of players on chess.com refuse to rematch.
So what does at mean ?
They either need to pee or drop a bombshell asap.
I think it means that they might not want a rematch, but they could be using reverse psychology on you. First, they dissapoint you by beating and then make you angry by not offering you a rematch. After refusing you a rematch, they make you angrier and give you the feeling of powerlessness. After getting you out of you best mode of thinking, then they turn and grant you one, completing a mind f#@k, that for all intents and purposes, should have you come out playing either over zealous, so that you hang a piece, or that you will play nervously and tentative, affraid to lose again, with your position ripe for the picking....
....are you sure you really want a rematch... ?
Sometimes it can mean they started another game before you could offer the rematch and they can't take it (even if they want to) because they're in the other game.
I generally don't offer rematches and I prefer to accept rematches only if someone has a style I like, or if I feel I can learn something about a certain opening variation by playing them. If someone beats the everliving snot out of me and offers to beat me again in a rematch, I'll usually politely decline. And if someone feels salty that they lost on the clock in a won endgame or they lost after achieving an advantage in the opening... well that sucks but it happens to everyone.
Sometimes I humor salty players and take the rematch, but I know that one rematch can lead to another rematch, and that can mean committing myself to playing not one more but maybe four more games with them, and I may not want to commit 40 more minutes of my life to playing the same person over and over.
This thread was awarded the the dumbest thread of the....acutuallt dumbest thread in eternity award.
people don't rematch because they don't want to.
I play only one game at a time.
once in a while ( like bullet for instance) I rematch.
right now as I am typing this my mom is asking me for the PC.(lol)
not every one has time to play more than one match.
also no one likes playing the same person twice.
PS your idea was so dumb taht I puked.
the "play one game with no rating change and force them to take a rematch or else they will loose 100 rating points" idea.
please take into consideration the world does not revolve around you.
When you have to share computers you usually discover that your family members need more than 20 minutes just to enter to their email inbox
I know right.
along with it they also check Facebook and my dad downloads 2GB movies leaving it almost un-unsable for 8 hours.luckily (or unluckily) it's only on sundays.
