    Can my opponent see my conditional moves before he makes his own?

    Only if he has figured out what your next move will be, he will move, then you will get another conditional move thrown at you, which is what I suspect happened in your case!! No, he can not actually see it on the board.

    It would be a rather large programming oversight if they could.

    Thank you for your answers. I just remember the old-fashioned correspondence chess via physical letters, where one could write "if xx, then yy", and the opponent obviously could see it (in the letter) before he made his move. That was OK in exchange series and 'one legal move'-situations, but on RedHotPawn I use the conditional-option in less obvious situations as well.

    There is this classic correspondance game allegedly involving top players.

    I Play also at a site where you can see the codnitional move (there is only the Option for one). It makes only sense to put them in if there is no other move.

    I like it better here.
