I want a rematch from the USA of the 1898 war. Well, no, actually I don't.

I think chessdotcom should try to implement a feature immediately after the game ends showing an option to offer / accept rematch (for 5 seconds or whatever) during which time neither player can start a new game.

You don't understand, there are some people, like me, who NEVER want to rematch. Such a feature just wastes my time unless they put in an option of an automatic "never accept rematch." As I've said before, I don't like the kind of people who feel the need to avenge their failure, so I never want to play with them.

try to find games against players above my rating. I get trounced a lot as a result. But… if I learned something, had a fun game, or hope to get more schooling from the better player, I’ll often ask for a rematch. It’s about 40% that it is accepted.  I always appreciate the second game, but if it’s declined I feel no ill will about it. It’s their life and prerogative. Who am I to judge their motive?

Canada is good with the results of the war of 1812, no rematch asked for, or required. happy.png

Yeah... we kicked their rebellious colonial asses.

Maybe chess.com could offer a two-game match seek that all the rematch cravers could use. Although then, forum posts would probably fall off by about 20% ...

Well… In 1814 we took a little trip…

My brain is usually fried after playing a game, and I need about 5 minutes to unwind before I feel like I'm ready to jump in again.  Sorry.

I never take rematches. Just click next challenge. Eventually, you might play the same person again.

I never offer a rematch.  I figure if I won, I got lucky and if I lost my opponent is better than me.

I used to use the excuse that I like to analyze my games while they are fresh in my mind, and honestly, if you want to improve, that's what you should be doing anyway. Every coach will tell you that. Mind you, I do analyze a good portion of my games if I'm curious about some position, but who am I kidding. I just don't like rematches.... especially against Russian players. The Winter War went about as well as we could've reasonably expected.

I have not got a chance to play rematch from any USA player. What is the solution to avoid USA completely? They spoil my mind in playing chess.

Best way is to quit chess.com since it's based in USA. You're welcome.

If chess.com makes a two-out-of-three option it would be very popular.

And if you have to be black twice, no big deal. You'll get to be white twice next time, probably.

And if you don't want to be involved in the two-out-of-three, just stick to whatever other option you play.
