"dial up" and "more time" - both valid considerations - thanks - i have however witnessed this in blitz - sometimes i think an opponent is a kind of stunned.

I wrote my first chess program in 73 and if it only had one legal move in the legal move list it gave the position no further consideration and made that move. thoughts...?




I still use dial-up, so depending on the time of day I try to not tie up the phone for too long. I go to the 'Current Games' page and write down all of my opponents' moves without really looking at them if the position is still somewhat complicated, and then analyze off-line.

maybe your opponent is analyzing the game after that one move. I don't usually offer conditional moves..even for an obvious recapture...gives me more time to figure on my next move.
