The colorful people one meets on live Blitz
Mar 3, 2013, 6:01 PM
Hello, its been ages since i post a blog. Mainly because of work. Ive never stopped playing though. I keep training and studing and only playing people who are rated higher than i am and not "fishing" for points. Thats why my rating is so low. And ofcourse me having much to learn in chess is also a factor. I suck. Anyhow the past week i recieved two messages on my profile page after playing 5min blitz with two people who will remain anonymous for reasons of respect. Ill reffer to them as douchebag 1 and douchebag 2.
Here are their comments, ill adress them individually.
I played and won three games against DB1 and we drew the fourth one. It appears that drawing is not allowed in DB1's mind. And also the DB1's name is one of those cryptic nicks that makes no reference to gender. So no DB1, i wasnt affraid to lose to a girl. I was winning and about to promote. Time ran out. Deal with it. It happens. There are no right or wrong ways to play chess. You are forced to follow the rules. Thats the equalizer.
I played only 1 game against DB2. Ironically he acused me of the very thing he did. I had to wait on a mate in 1 for almost a minute before the clock ran out of time.
In conclusion remember that when you fish for points amongst lower rated players you may find people who are actually there because they play harder players all the time.
