    You could always keep moving and hope he times out. 😛

    True!! But like this one, the opponent was waiting for a miracle, and it did happen on his favor. 😲

    As interesting as white's win is, it's not the most interesting thing about the game. White ( a 2100 rated player) dropped 2 pieces in the opening (moves 8 and 15). I literally ran to his profile to see if he mentions anything about drinking and playing. No such luck ... It's an odd game all the way around!

    Blitz: Playable
    Serious correspondance chess: Not playable
    Against a good opponent (1600+ I think) with more than 10 minutes on the clock: Not playable
    Against a 2800 GM with 10 seconds on the clock: Playable

    My "rating down-slide" was due to lost password & other life's priorities first.
    Noting more. I love interesting chess, & no bulls!!
    As I have said before, I will prefer to play against player who are always @ least
    100 points over me or more. I always stick to my words.
    higher rating against me, only makes me more aggressive & focused.
    nothing personal to anyone here. It's just my nature, and you can always
    challenge me, as long as you have @ least 100 points more than me.
