Skilled players know what land they are in. By land, I am referring to the time constraints of the game as well as the chess skills they bring. If the sole purpose is winning some players will show their skill by exploiting the preexisting time constraints to win. If this player's talent lies in mouse speed, they may run (with your points) in exchange of being a coward. I would suspect 1-0 and similar time controls to have the heaviest amount of such players. Speed and opportunism go hand in hand.
Yeah, based on skilled player's perspective, I do agree that the sole purpose is winning some players. It will show their skill by exploiting the preexisting time constraints to win.
Rating is the only reason for 1 0 chess. Well, that, and the adrenaline rush. Most active 1 0 players are addicts.
I strongly agree with your brief comments.
All people do on this website is cry about people being time players. If you can't finish the game in the allocated time, then play a longer control. Anybody who plays one-minute chess is a time player. And as for 'runners,' get over yourself wannabegmjoey1. You sound like you lost a few games on time and took it personally. Grow a pair and move on. Your rating here doesn't matter, just like you. :)
Statement "get over yourself wannabegmjoey1", wow this is very intriguing. LoL
What I take from this thread is you enjoy insulting other players. To me the definition of a coward is a bully hiding safely behind a computer screen. I'd wager you don't have the stones to insult another player to his face. you throw around words like coward and fool... Pot to Kettle: You are black.
It is something different and unique opinion, you can say anything as long as you understand, Nice!
cuz runnig burns fat and is good for the heart
whuahahaha,,,yes...yes...keep healthy, lol
