Don't Be That Guy at Chess E-mail

don't be that guy chessHere are a couple of funny "don't do's" of tournament chess shared by the chess.com user linlaoda.

This is a purely comedic and not serious post that is a spinoff of "don't be that guy at the gym" theme.

Are you committing any "chess crimes?" Let's find out :)


1. Don't be that guy who stands too close to the board when observing. It's hard to concentrate when you can feel someone breathing on you!

2. Don't be that guy who forgot to shower... self explanatory.

3. Don't be that guy who goes outside and talks about their game to others. I'm sure you could find something else to talk about ;)

4. Don't be that guy who coughs or makes loud noises - chess players like silence!

5. Don't be that guy who hits the clock so hard that everybody in the room hears it.

6. Don't be that guy who mumbles the chess moves he is thinking about under his breath.

7. Don't be that guy who knocks the pieces over during the final seconds of play.

Do you have any others? Please post them!

Posted by others:

8. Don't be the guy who gets up and leaves the playing area on his turn.

9. Don't be that guy who falls asleep at the board.

10. Don't be that guy who loses the game but always wins the post mortem.


Do you feel you have become a better chess player? Let's test you.

Quoting Supertitiz:
Bb8 if queen takes Bxa6#
if knight or other queen want move
Bxa6 Qxa6 is forced Qc7#
if queen goes a8 or b7 white also wins


Actually, 1. Bb8 Qxb8 2. Bxa6+ is not mate but is winning anyway after forced 2. ... Qb7

Don't be that player who critiques his/her opponent's game for him/her during or after play without being asked to do so.

-Don't be that guy who denies the "touch-move" rule, by refusing to play the piece he previously touched
-Don't be that guy who repeatedly asks for draws
-Don't be that guy who leaves his pieces scattered on the chessboard after the game

Don't be the guy who yells mate in 10 and end up losing the game in the next 8 moves.

That's a correct solution, my friend!

Quoting Supertitiz:
Bb8 if queen takes Bxa6#
if knight or other queen want move
Bxa6 Qxa6 is forced Qc7#
if queen goes a8 or b7 white also wins
