I played a skittles game (no clocks, arbiter etc.) against a beginner who did a lot of trash talking, which I didn't rise to. Here is an example of the conversation:
Beginner: I'm going to beat you easily!
Bad_Bishop: I'd like to see that. I play at quite a high level. Do you want a refresher on the rules, such as en passant and castling?
Beginner: No, I know all that already
Beginner: I'll take white. They always win!
Beginner: [Part way through the game] How do knights move again?
Bad_Bishop: In an 'L' shape
Beginner: [After being checkmated] OK, you won, but I took 2 pawns and a knight!
Bad_Bishop: Hmmm. Do you want to play a different game?
My questions are, should I have handled this beginner's trash talk differently? How?
I didn't keep a scoresheet, but this is what I remember of the opening:
[FEN ""] [White "Beginner"] [Black "Bad_Bishop"] 1. b3 d5 2. Na3 e5 3. Nb1 Bc5 4. d4 Bxd4 5. Kd2 Bxa1 *
