What is the worst way to lose at chess?

  • #101

    I was black,my turn,lost on time after fighting the whole game with less material.

  • #102

    Wow, weird position

  • #103

    It's a checkmate situation

  • #104

    blundering a rook on time

  • #105

    Playing a game where you were losing badly, fighting your way back even again only to blunder the game away at the end.

    Fighting my way through the middle game to a tense ending with mate threats on both sides, my opponent set a trap which I spotted at the last second, I went to move a piece to safety and the touchpad on my laptop registered a move I hadn't intended - leaving me checkmate next move.

    I like the 'Submit' button on the iPhone app - stops me making that sort of inadverdent error.

    Timeout after having requesting an agreed time limit. <---- Poor organization, carelessness, poor focus, disrespectful, waste of time. Something so easily avoided.

    I think the worst way to lose is when an enemy bishop is way over in the other corner and I get checkmated because I didn't see it sitting there blocking a square that I thought I could move my king to.

    worst way to lose it moving into a statelate in a game you are winning.  I just had this happen to me and there's nothing worse.  I had a queen two rooks, two bishops and my dumbass moved right into a stalemate.  The good thing is that I was so pissed that I crushed my next two opponents.

    When there's a sniper on the roof of the other building setting his sights on you... you go to move your king... and blam!  Shoots off the tip of your thumb.  The king falls over and your opponent claims with by forfeit.
