I've had some funny (but good) resignations.
One in a drawish game because they liked the blog and posts!
I've offered draws in a won endings because the games is over, I've won.
They are not up for resigning and I've no need to practise my end game
technique. 🙂 So split the point and move on.
Though our draw...here see if anyone else wants to comment.
Black to play (me) offered a draw.
I'm two pawns up but am tied down to a draughty King.
If I go for it, (I think I might OTB, depends on the situation) one
slight mini-blunder and White will be in, at best I'd drop a perpetual, at
worse I'd get mated. I would not put money on me to play x amount of
moves without a mini-blunder from this position.
I'd set a glasshouse trap, I know I would.
Yes my loss was grim, I never got out of the starting block
I cannot pull tricks out the bag all the time and if I have other
games on the go and one looks juicy, juicy, in this case I think it was
the Beatlemania game which ended up in the blog.
Then all the other games suffer and get shrug of the shoulders, see what
happens next moves.
I've met some good lads in this tournament, though when I entered
I thought it was all play all and was looking forward to crushing skulls
due to the one day TC.
Ohforf was a good chatty lad, I screwed up a lovely game v him,
I won it but it could have been better.
He was also the poor lad who lost v The Latvian in 4 moves.
I consoled him by telling him at least 6 other players have made the
same mistake on here.
So it might be you, me and luke myster.
I've not look at the games you have v luke myster I'll just sit and wait.
Just had a peek at him.
I see he has 40+ games on the go plus 233 timeouts against him
So he will be getting Traps 36 and 47. If he spots them Trap 98
will do it.
As for you....
I'll play the most boring game you have ever seen.
It will be so sad and boring you will dread seeing the 'games waiting'
signal appearing in case it's me.
During these stodgy games, which will last three years and still have all
the pawns and pieces on the board after 115 moves, you will have to go
to your doctor for anti-depressant pills.
The misery will never end, your hair will fall out, you teeth will fall out,
a huge hunch will appear on your back and.......hang on a minute I'm describing me.
