Internet Handles

I have to say, you encounter lots of internet players with ego-trips (you can tell them by the internet handle - click on the image above to see my opponent's handle).

Take for this instance, this player whom I played.... naturally, my opponent took the easy way out instead of resigning (which seems to be the norm these days when these players lose - they simply disconnected on me).

Speaking of which.... if this is false advertising, then ... can I get my money back? ;-)


  1. This is exactly why I don't play random people.

    Looking at who's on FICS at the moment, my favorite handle is "botchvinik"
