Just because you see the mate in one doesn't mean your opponent does. Believe it or not, I have played games where my opponent saw a move, a tactic, a combination that I did not see. Sometimes it takes one player longer to see and play a move than the other. Because if both players used the exact same amount of time, and saw everything the opponent sees, then most games would come down to the last tenth of a second and/or internet connection.

Believe it or not, I believe you.

He is talking about obvious mate in one move! I agree with you on what you said, but there will always be some people who take the position till it's mate in 1 and then they stop until it's 1-2 seconds on the clock!

You guys need to do something about all these people who waste my time letting the clock tun down, waiting until the last second to make their mate move. I once paid for premium membership, cant afford it currently, and was thinking about getting it again. But if you guys cant do something about this. I dont see why I should give you the $100 a year.

I understand. I really do. But I would still make the same point. I have missed mates in one. In fact, I have missed a mate in one more than once. I can only assume other people, beginner or advanced, have also missed mates in one.

So not everyone sees exactly what their opponent sees. If they did, it would be a very boring game. And not everyone plays at the same pace. So I can personally testify that there are occasions where someone might take a very long time to make what SEEMS like a very obvious move. I might be in the middle of what I consider a very complicated scenario where it's possible to trap the queen. Unless I'm missing something, I can trap the queen in 3 moves. But I have to make sure. I have to go over every possible scenario. I'm concentrating as best as I can, and trying to do it as fast as I can. Because I don't want to make a mistake. If I can do this successfully, I will almost certainly win the game. 

Meanwhile, the opponent is probably annoyed that I'm not seeing the mate in one.
