    Yes, but I like to think of myself as a great ape.

    Yeah, it's part of the game and one just has to deal with it. I am up against a player who went down two pieces by move 20, and has been taking all his allotted time for each move since then. We are up to move 38, and it is a slow slog trying to get simplified into a dead-nuts won endgame up a rook with a passed pawn. The game's a month-and-a-half old now, and could go easily another two or three weeks, or longer if he wants to drag it to checkmate. Then we play another game!

    Most players just resign and get on with the next game, why draw out the agony? I figure if someone outplayed me that badly in the first twenty moves, how can I expect that he or she will not play at least as well in the next twenty? But people have their reasons.

    As far as CC goes, I try to make a move for each game every morning at breakfast, yet I always instigate 7-14 days/move as if I go out partying for the weekend, a family member gets hospitalised or I hit a stage of depression then I like to be able to return to the game without being reliant on my vacation time,which I may genuinely need at some point. I don't think vacation time should be viable for tournaments, though, it is unfair to the multiple participants. One on One matches, however, are not worth crying over. There are other matches you can sink your teeth into without getting your big oul bloomers in a knot whilst waiting for your slow opponent.

    All the best to him, wherever he may have gone. Though departed his thread was still first on my Google search. I didn't realise it was so old.
