18 ( +1 | -1 ) Checking!Is there any rule, against constant checking or is it chess ettiquet or something??? in one of my games one of my opponents keeps doing is basically because im on top and its realy starting to annoy me!! plz help
20 ( +1 | -1 ) this is perfectly ...legal in chess .. infact its a great defence if your down to try to create a 3 move repeat to save the draw . if you are getting annoyed at the checks .. move to a spot where he cannot check you .
34 ( +1 | -1 ) that's good ....FOR HIM! It's within the rules ..period. If it upsets you and throws you off your game .. your lost .. maybe your Queen! Once you're upset .. take a break, do something else. Don't make any moves when you're upset ..period. Come back later with a fresh look ... find your best move and make it.
24 ( +1 | -1 ) im just curious..what you mean by some etiquette , thou shalt not attack thy oponents king ? surely you dont mean this .. so infact i think your actually annoyed at your own defences ... so perhaps build a bigger wall ?
58 ( +1 | -1 ) ettiquette?There is no place for ettiquette on a battlefield. You can be polite when the game is over.
If I were to play you, I would even check you as much as possible just because I know this annoys you and may cause you to blunder. After all we as chessplayers are supposed to make the best moves possible that can offer us an advantage. At the top level, players even research their upcoming opponent's games, planning on exploiting any weaknesses possible. For example If a certain player hates closed, slow positions, his opponents will purposely try to steer him into a closed game, etc.
17 ( +1 | -1 ) ordinary_manI wonder how you get on in the endgame, where checking your opponent's King could actually assist him, by allowing the King to cross the board without loss of tempo.
14 ( +1 | -1 ) philaretuschallenge me to a game and find out...but of course I would reserve this checking strategy only for people whom it annoys....obviously not you! :)
25 ( +1 | -1 ) ettiquette on a battlefield...There is a place for ettiquette on the board, but it applies to things like resigning when your position is hopeless, not giving your opponent a break. Consecutive checks can be a great way to force your opponent into an undesirable position.
35 ( +1 | -1 ) Interesting, im glad i sparked a thread, whether it be gud or bad. Strange how a person can say that resigning a 'lost' position is ettiquette in chess but yet constant checking isnt. A position is never lost in my opinion. I understand what u mean victord, bad mistake from my part & now i splattered my weakness all over the forum! But we do learn from our mistakes dont we! :)
125 ( +1 | -1 ) yes...That's the object. Not much is learned in a win, but a loss should always be replayed and looked at in depth..see where you went wrong and correct it for next time..learn from your mistakes. As far as resigning goes ..it's always your choice and you should not be intimidated ever. Follow your heart. If they ask..tell then you are learning and want to see "how it's done" , that's what I do. Now I often will be able to tell by a players rate when all hope is lost. I'll tell you this though.. many players are lazy and not precise in their endgame skills..very often a draw can be gained by a good defender. Play 'em out, make them show you they know what they are doing....fight to the bitter end..and then, when you can see for sure you will be checkmated within a move or two, congradulate your opponet,resign and then take the time to go back over the game useing the 'analyze the board' feature...try to see what caused what ..think about it ..move stuff around, maybe see a better move for next time. You may find a common error in many of your losses ...fix it...improve.
22 ( +1 | -1 ) ... take time to go back over the game ...... and get someone who plays /really/ well (a teacher, or one of the highly rated players on this site (not me)) to go over the game with you, to tell you where you went wrong, and why, and how your opponent capitalized on your mistake.
