What do you do when someone refuses to move?


Are you sure it isn't zugzwang?


I've had too many people who I'm beating disconnect and let the clock run out rather than resign.  In my book that's poor sportsmanship.  I can tell when someone gets disconnected and reconnects due to internet or server issues, but deliberate disconnecting is very annoying. Sometimes things happen during a game, e.g., an asthma attack, my daughter calls with an urgent matter, someone unexpected drops by, and I can't continue.  I always resign rather than disconnect.  I want to be fair to my opponent.


Wife: "did you leave the game? Why?"


Me: "well, so you can have all my attention on your plans about the kids' extracurricular activities during next course (which is starting in two months)"


Wife: "now you are telling me it is my fault you lost it!"


Players do have a right to use their full allotment of time! If someone keeps you waiting too long, you can always play with yourself.
