    to send an opponent a "nice game. well played" message ingame , to get them to drop their guard and snatch a win from their grasp.

    Did it accidentially to one person. I was defiately in a compromised position when I thought I came up with a mating move on him and so I sent the following message with the move. "Was tempted to resign a couple of moves ago. Glad I didn't." About as soon as I clicked the "move" button I relized that it wasn't mate and thought "man is he gonna think I am a putz" Low and behold the game shows up in my list as won. He resigned! Kind of felt guilty about it. Unless I really am a putz and did not see that I had some sort of forced mate.

    This one I presume? Game 1763394

    Easy enough with a new player, the other resignation in check I can see is a very obvious mate. This one looks like white should have played on.

    Some time ago I've sent an intimidating SMS to my opponent during a game.
    He got so distracted he lost in few moves (ans soiled his pants as bonus).

    In another game I've sent sexy photos to my opponent cellphone (mm-msg) - again, distracted, lost quickly.

    Muwhahahahahaha...

    Haha i just had an idea for OTB.

    Take a mini water gun in your pocket and spray it on his "area". Then he will be too embarrased/scared too go look at other games so will be worried and cant concentrate!!!

    Or Qa7+ Kc8
    Qc5 and blacks screwed

    Ya I actually felt somewhat guilty for sending that message after he resigned as I was thinking of resigning myself. I guess it is a little bit of a sniker when you think about it though. Maybe i'll send him the link to this thread and see what kind of sense of humour he has.

    Don't trust your opponents. Act as if he is a patzer and find the best move.

    If he sacs a piece and you think its a blunder then take it. Believe in yourself because that is all you got.

    Ok, I sent Crockett1947 a PM leading him to this thread. I hope he has a sense of humour, or maybe he can show us what he saw that nobody else did.

    Hi all, I was probably playing at lunch and didn't take time to really analyze the situation. Chess is a fun game and I hope to learn something from every game. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. My rating is unimportant to me -- the joy comes from playing a decent game with players who also enjoy the game. I avoid the forums on here because there is just so much posturing and crud. I believe in treating people with respect and hope to be treated the same in return. I know that that will not always be the case, but such is life.

    As I say to each and every new opponent after our first game: "May your days be filled with friendship, love, and joy!!"
