My Chess Agreement

Sep 5, 2017, 6:24 PM |

I agree to the following:

  • I will not play any online blitz or online bullet until 2018
  • I will not deliberately visit or comment on the public forums (group/club forums are allowed) until 2018 with the exception of my forums, the daily puzzle, and my brother's forums.


"If you are serious about improving at chess, online chess should be used sparingly. Once a week should be enough. If you are to improve you must study much more than play. And the playing should be over the board, not online." - GM Alex Colovic

"If a player has big aims, he should limit his rapid play in favor of serious chess." - Vladimir Kramnik 

"It is very difficult to play a single blitz game! You want to play for a long time. So I tend not to do that anymore." - Viswanathan Anand

"Blitz chess kills your ideas." - Bobby Fischer
