    Hey all, I don't understand why some players resign games when it's equal or they are winning. Am I missing something?

    I also see sandbagging being used here. What's this?

    Thanks

    What is this? A chess question here?

    Ok, yes some sandbag. Some for whatever reason stop playing and timeout a bunch of games lowering their rating.

    Or also intentionally losing game(s) to lower their rating. This is hard to judge though as there can be many reasons for a players drop in Rating...Personal issues, Medical reasons, simply getting older can have an effect on some peoples ratings also. One would have to look over multiple games over a long period of time in my humble opinion.

    Considering you haven’t made a chess move on this site in nearly seven and half years, and are probably another one of mister moggies sock puppets, I’d say “what you were missing” is anybody here who will give three fifths of fuk-all about what you don’t understand.

    I’m just ‘being nice’

    Well it's quite obvious you don't understand a lot yourself. So by your attitude I'm assume you don't know yourself

    I beg to differ. He could have said it in flawless French.

    YOU: Last moved 2713 days 13 hours and 38 minutes ago, so why would you even be concerned about this I've been wondering?

    That hadn't crossed my mind, after not moving for so long looks like he retired from the chess part and just joins the banter in the forums.
