Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Conditionals

Hi Per,

I don't care what you think. In fact, many tricks are being used in postal chess.

1. Many players lie about the day they receive the move.
2. Many players lie about the move they receive. They tell their opponent they received a different move. When the TD writes to them to send the card they either tell the TD they looked again and accept the move is what the opponent said he wrote or they say they lost the card and will accept what their opponent has stated. They will not send the card to the TD as requested. Unfortunately, many opponents simply accept they made a clerical error and the cheaters get a free win.
3. Many players are claiming they don't receive moves even when they do so they can gain more time.
4. Players refuse to mark their moves "Air Mail" to slow down the game and brain dead tournament directors allow this practice.
5. Some players send a move April 27, as an example, but date the move April 23. They use a black or dark stamp and put the dark Air Mail sticker where the postmark will appear in the hope their opponent will not be able to read the postmark. I have a very large magnifying glass for reading such postmarks.

These are only some of the dirty tricks used in postal chess. Everyone who has directed or played in any great volume of postal tournaments has seen them all.

With todays technology postal chess is only suitable for consenting adults.
