    Hi there,

    I am a reasonably good player when I play games timed to 20 minutes or more; but I am sort of afraid of running out of time to play short timed games like 10 minutes or less.  It is more of a mental block!

    Please advise how to overcome this time fear and think quick.  I can think well when I have time; but my brain sort of FREEZES; when time is short and I have to make quick moves!

    Any useful suggestion is welcomed and much appreciated.

    I try to avoid being behind on time. When I'm ahead on time, I don't feel very pressured, irrespective of how much time I actually have left.
