    Then do this. Get a board. Move the pieces for both players as they appear on the screen.

    That'd get you kicked out of any organized event.

    I think you'd like Hikaru Nakamura. He's a very famous streamer/online player and he gets into it/has beefs with pretty much all the top players. Magnus Carlsen also will dish it out to people. This pretty much all happens online though. Never seen anything like that in an in person tournament.

    Wave I'm going to create one of those accounts after the bar exam is over

    I'd consider it an honor for you to beat my ass all across that board!

    How do you feel about resigning in chess?

    I embraced Wave's statement about the Queen's Gambit

    I find it interesting because in a game such as Magic the Gathering, resigning/concessions are common for a variety of reasons

    Almost every game between grandmasters that doesn't end in a draw ends in resignation. The top guys know when they have lost and it's pointless to play it out at that level. You almost never see a high level game actually reach checkmate.

    In casual games you might as well play it out, because your opponent could always blunder.

    MtG has variance to it, so it's not as common

    Yeah chess is a zero variance game. The guy who plays better always wins.

    Sometimes I watch the Chessbrahs yt channel. Has a bit of a smack talk vibe to it, not obnoxious.

    Wave? he is tricksy! He is false!
    The Plan at the moment:

    Draft: Trade a 3rd and 6th this year to a team to move up and get a 2nd next year (this will happen).

    Players I want:
    Jake Ferguson (Jake Butt) or Jelani Woods or Jeremy Ruckert or Cade Otten (owen daniels) at TE- All 4th rd or later.
    Troy Anderson LB 3rd/4th rd (yay Timmy!)
    Neil Farrell, JR DL- run stuffer- bye purcell
