    Game Game 6411006 I just had lost.
    But then I rambled, that I would just make just some further moves until I resign.

    And then he took my queen.

    And a New York second later ( Terry Pratched called that the shortest messurable amount of time in universe, the time between the traffic lights in New York go green and the taxi driver behind you honks like mad ) I moved Nxa7#

    Is that fair?
    Is that allowed?

    I think that's fine, it can happen to anyone.

    Brilliant!! Thank You.

    I like your opponents profile:

    "I enjoy assorted chocolates, counting to 11......"

    Look at it this way. You're providing a valuable lesson for your opponent.

    In the words of Al Bundy, abso-freakin-lutely.

    Especially if the player is 500 points lower rated. You could probably win even if you gave odds of a piece at the start of the game.

    don't worry, next times, you will crush him 200 times.


    Be positives, and say you were generous.

    i hope he said thank you.

    You mean you sent a message saying you were thinking of resigning when you knew there was
    a surprise check mate? And the message was intended to lull your opponent into a false sense of security?

    Surely you wouldn't use such low cunning deliberately.

    You don't have a guilty conscience, you're just bragging!

    Which is just fine; I like seeing clever and surprise checkmates.

    Although it would have been more impressive if you weren't nearly 500 points above your opponent in ratings. How'd you fall so far behind him in material when you were so much stronger a player than he? That's a more curious matter.

    If he did that's pretty funny.
