When I Play Blitz Online, I Prefer...

  • A small increment (a few seconds) -- just enough to finish off winning endgames.
  • A larger increment (five seconds or more) -- I like more time to find good moves.
  • No increment -- it's more exciting that way!
  • It doesn't matter -- I'll play anything.
  • I don't play blitz.
