    someone who's losing a game can just throw a fit, accuse me of cheating, and blacklist me and I have no recourse? (Mott the Hoople!)

    I was having a good game for once.. you ruined my whole night. I am not a cheater.

    Never try to reason with a hoople.

    Your opponent's Capturing Move "11. Qd1xc2" appears to been ill advised. Gentleman's Option: offer a Draw.

    Umm, Grampy, that's a game in progress.

    Of course you have a recourse. You can bitch about it in the forums and in your profile! 🙂

    I think they developed an engine that plays the variant Losing Chess. I think your opponent is using it. Accuse back my man.

    No blank, SwissGambit. The frustrated opponent is without a queen after eleven moves. Options: a) Crush his ego and watch him bleed; b) Offer a Gentleman's Draw and start a new game. Principle: treat others better than they deserve.

    These chess players are rated in the low teens. Lost Queen could have happened to either one. Why be condescending?

    you might want to double check who's actually being condescending and who's joking..


    regardless, I feel better somehow. I'll leave you gentle forums in peace

    'Condescending' reference was in reply to SG... not you, white boy bob. Best wishes in your chess games.

    His point is that it's against the TOS to discuss a game in progress.

    No problem. You might want to go back and delete those posts if you still can. Better than a forum ban.

    I'm partial to a) myself. I find the game most interesting when both me and my opponent are going for a).
