    Game 2202177
    This guy just challenged me out of the blue and is playing a game so bad it seems deliberate.

    Is this like a scam to boost my rating so someone who is going to lose to me won't have as many points lost or something like that.

    Any explanation I can think of seems really far-fetched and stupid, but I honestly can't believe anyone would play like this.

    He's just stupid.
    1. He can't spell Knicks
    2. He's a Knicks fan.

    Indeed, Black played terribily, White has spun a clever trap -- let black thing he's got mate and then unleash a powerful counter attack with mate in 6.

    I thought you were being sarcastic until I saw the trap myself. Brilliant.

    I suggest that KNIXFAN is actually a complete beginner, probably knowing no more than the basic Laws of the Game, quite possibly playing his/her/it's (Notice how politically correct I am) first few games without any other knowledge or advice. KNIXFAX's other games show all the similar beginner's errors. Don't be too critical or sarcastic: after all we all had to start sometime.

    I'm just gonna say this: That is the reason I haven't challenged or accepted on this forum yet. I am just a beginner and am a horrible player and wouldn't want to get laughed off this site. I don't know if there are others out there, but if I were playing a game you would think I'm an idiot, not that I'm denying I am.
