Online vs F2F Chess

Jan 7, 2008, 8:24 AM 10

I am curious how people handle the differences between online games and face to face games.  In particular, if you have 3 days to move, online, only the honor system and "having a life" prevents a player from using elaborate analysis tools (other computer applications and so on) to choose their move.  I think this is a great site, and enjoy being able to squeeze in a little chess between "real work," but assume I play at a huge disadvantage since I just spend a few minutes analyzing the board, as I would in a friendly, face to face game.  I'd love to hear from folks about this issue with online chess.  -- Mark
