    If a opponent is rated 300-400 points lower then me.

    I tend to get a bit arrogant and tend to uderestimate him/her.

    A good example is this game Game 2955016 .

    But, my question,.... does anyone else have this problem. Or is it just me

    An f7 hack by move 3 is a rather patronising (not to say compromising to your own position) way to play anyone.
    I'd never treat anyone like that - even if they were rated far lower than me. Just play your normal game would be my advice.

    He was black.

    Half the games I play as black seem to involve f7 hacks.

    Which are ended quickly by e6.

    That would indeed win the game for white.
    I was lucky I guess

    Apologies to the OP


    An f7 hack is no way to start your chess career against a higher rated player!

    It sometimes happens with me and when I`m starting to play too careless.

    I dropped material in both these games to a 500 points lower rated player, but managed to wrestle wins out of them. pure luck.

    Game 2967815
    Game 2967786
