Conditional moves are a luxury, though, and purely non-essential. It's entirely your option to use them. There doesn't need to be a submit button, because the user has to click "Conditional Moves" to make them. The conditional-moves feature isn't for someone who isn't exactly sure what moves he wants to make.
I rather like the feature. I even tried it out myself in a game, but my opponent chose a different line. But in my opinion, that one feature doesn't make the site any worse for joining... perhaps makes it somewhat better even.
con/moves is great,best for slow movers , gives them more moves to think about
There is a circumstance where conditional moves is alot like experimentally moving pieces around on a chessboard; this can reveal things about a position that otherwise wouldn't be known.
I kind of like the "risk" of the conditional moves to try and limit this kind of experimentation at least a little.
I use conditional moves a lot. Keeps the game moving when there is an obvious series of moves. Premium members are also allowed to enter multiple lines of conditional moves. I have sometimes entered five or more different lines. I find some amusement visualizing my opponent who probably assumes I have entered only one line sitting there going how the bleep did he know what I was going to do when a series of conditional moves goes on for 4 or 5 moves through viable alternatives. Although, I have also invested a lot of time in entering multiple lines of conditional moves only to get the first move wrong and have all that effort go for nothing - except education I suppose.
haha...Sorg67 me too! I've come a LONG way on this issue and the analyze window in combination with the conditional moves is probably the single best feature of this site. I just wish we could play out a line in analyzer and paste it into conditional moves. THAT I might pay for.
