We used to do that all the time, when I was still playing blitz. When behind in time in a dead drawn Pawn ending, where the opponent tried to push us through the flag, by moving the King back and forth in opposition, we would pre-condition him by making a speed contest of it, and then suddenly step our King diagonally forward instead of sideways, ending up next to his King. 10 to 1 that he would react to the move he expected, rather than the one we actually played, staying adjacent to our King, and would realize this only after pressing the clock. Then we would claim the game.


The solution is to play always with an increment so nobody is going to try to win on time.

Even in blitz tournaments that I played in the last years there was an increment of 2 seconds per move.
