Playing endgame correctly in time pressure is no doubt difficult, however when both sides make a series of botches, it comes down to the point who makes the last grave mistake.

Two young players made quite a few mistakes in a Rook and Knight v Rook and Bishop endgame in Round 1 of 4th Shaastra Rapid Rating Open 2020.

  1. The black player purposely places his pieces that way. Says a lot about his upbringing at home, his parents would have told to win the game at any cost, even if it means to not have basic courtesy. Chess is such a noble sport and players like these are just outright ridiculous. Total trash -.-

  2. Gentlemen 😀 😀 😀 Both. Look at the handshake at the end. And they played bowling probably. 😀 😀 😀

  3. I really hate players like the black player in this game.. Knocks over the pieces and presses the clock without adjusting them… It was well within the etiquette and spirit of the game for the white player to do a Zhigalko and call the arbiter…. I mean I have seen players who knock pieces over, presses the clock and then adjusts them, but this guy goes even further.. Hesitates to adjust them back even after pressing the clock… Basic etiquette must also be taught in chess camps, and chess sites and channels like chessbase india should probably make a video on chess etiquette on the board… Stuff like adjusting the pieces.. Shaking hands.. Placing the pieces in the center of the squares… Adjusting the pieces while the opponent is thinking… Offering a draw… Resigning.. Post resignation etc…. #suggestion

  4. Wat r the rules about piece placement btw? i mean the elder player was literally placing pieces on half squares all the time !! and arbiter is there it seems. (unless I am mistaken – the lady with scores in her hand ) Shudn't the arbiter stop and tell him to place properly ?? or is it for players to appeal ?
