In non rated blitz sites like here and Gameknot I have purposely(on occassion) as an experiment,let my opponent gain massive pieces over me in the endgame.I once remember letting my opponent queen 5 pawns!So he had 6 queens on the board and all i had was my King and 1 pawn.
He was so overconfident,kept messaging me to resign,calling me a "fool" ect ect....then he forced me into a corner and I could not move my king to a legal move anywhere and my pawn was frozen.....
Ha!Stalemate!I just had to message him back and say...."who is the fool now?"
