Swindle

Swindle

Aux échecs, le swindle (de l'anglais : arnaque, escroquerie) consiste à tenter de renverser une position perdue en tendant un piège ou en jouant un coup inattendu.

Parfois, on appelle aussi swindle le fait d'utiliser une tactique de distraction de l'adversaire en dehors de l'échiquier, par exemple :

  • se mettre en zeitnot volontairement, pour jouer des coups rapides et inciter l'adversaire à faire de même,
  • jouer un coup en soupirant et faisant mine d'avoir commis une bourde alors qu'il s'agit d'un piège.
