Just Two 10|0 Rapid Games :)

Hi, chess friends! I kind of want to get a post out lol ... I tried out a couple of 10-minute rapid games on Chess.com (which is unusual for me, because I either play blitz, or 15|10). It was a very interesting experience, as I appeared to have plenty of time to think about my moves, but once the clock started ticking, it became clear that was not the case! Here are the games, I hope you enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this brief post. I did (re)learn that while 10-minute chess may seem like a longer time control, there's barely any time to soak my thoughts into the position, and it's closer to blitz in that it's largely based on intuition than some longer time control where calculation is more prominent. 

I plan to contiunue my "getting better at chess" series soon... but I have been for awhile, so hopefully I actually get a post out soon! Until then, have a great day, and I will see you soon!
