BigFooty's third chess match

A new year and a new match! Let's keep up our current good form against the Orbis Centre Club. Signups open until 20 February for all club members and then the match starts. It's 2 days a move which hopefully means the games will be quicker than last time!

Go BigFooty!

I've got a guy in a match I'm playing for another club, and he just made his moves - inside the last hour of his allotted 3 days. And he does this every time, the wee sh*te (his avatar looks about 8 years old). Here I am thinking, maybe he will time out this time, but he never does. The way I'm playing just now time outs are my best shot.

Solid games for me so far. Have crawled my King out of a sticky situation in one and just had my opponent spring a trap for their Queen in the other - going to be interesting to see how both play out.

The second one played out with a resignation. One more point for us.

My opponent has gone on vacation the move after I took his queen. 🙄
I saw that you were doing very well in both your games... They've only got 6 weeks vacation time, so just watch a couple of cricket re-runs, and then you can clean up ;-)

My opponent is now accusing me of cheating....because he is losing.
The dude back from abusing the vacation function?

If you were using an engine it would've shown rook to D8 as soon as he moved his knight, you wouldn't have traded the bishop before the rook move. He could've saved his queen if he were a better player.

Strangely enough he didn’t have time to make a move before he went back on vacation....

Surely you'd have a case to ping him for vacation abuse


He went on vacation immediately after blundering the queen (in both games), then came off vacation just to accuse you of cheating (presumably this was done in the chat) and then went on vacation again. Not exactly what the feature is designed for.

Is there any way of getting chess.com to review games?
It feels like like your best option if he's being abusive would be to report the person:

I imagine they would look at the game as part of the complaint.
