Serious question on chat etiquette

knightscape007

if you’re playng a daily or live game not anything serious but rated is it helpful to point out a better move your opponent could have played or does it cum across as patronising?

Depends if the person is close minded or immature.....

its helpful

but if you are one move into a game, its a bit strange to resign on the grounds the other player is intimidating..😯

Good question. I think if it’s a friend then okay but I’d prefer to discuss errors after the game has ended.

To be honest, I think pointing out my errors during play would probably be a full time job and quickly become irksome for both players.

Idk, how is that cumming along for u?

Only happened to me twice in 1.4yrs/1.8K rapid games. Once when clock was not really on my side, he was quite right but didn't want to take time to look at, Just said "tx, will look at in analysis." Another time guy said "you have a a very poor pawn structure" 10 moves into game. Rude, just trying to get me off my game, which I drew anyway despite him being slightly better rated.

After the game would be beneficial to both players. You will get a bigger picture of the circumstances that led to the position.

Analysis with your opponent should come after the game is done.

I'd point out only if a really big difference like person left a queen hanging and you didn't notice to take it. I'd also be careful in spelling "come" correctly unless it's with a friend.

Do it after the game, and also tell them how it was blatantly obvious to you and they are really bad at chess for not finding the move.

Pointing out a better move is to love thy enemy. Only noble humans can execute such generous moves. it showcases your humble nature. if the opponent gets into grrrrrrr mode despite your kindness, then simply give him/her a pizza and cookie trophy. This creates a niche of acceptance and thereafter it doesnt matter whether you win or lose the game because you most assuredly have won their hearts. Peace and blessings happy.png
