I'm not sure I'm insulted, but I find myself really annoyed. It's not challenging, and I keep thinking, "Do you really think I don't see that?" People that play for such quick wins tend to also create idle and obvious threats as well. Usually this involves moving their queen all over the board to attack pawns.

I know I've seen these topics here...but I wanted to ask, and I don't mean to sound arrogant here at all, but do you feel almost insulted when someone tries these on you?

hopefully i will see it a lot in my 1st tournament (may0-1150) they always have 1 plan in their mind it seems...
