Beginner Looking for a few Casual Matches to Improve

AmazingGamer27

I'm rated around 650 in blitz but want to start playing longer matches. If someone of a higher rating has time to play a few long matches that would be appreciated.

What is blitz

ansharora28

Gordon, blitz are short 5,3 minute games

AmazingGamer27

Blitz is a time length of basically five minutes in length with or without extra time per move. After writing this comment, I started to appreciate playing longer games, typically 10 minutes or longer.

Message me if you want to play a game. I'll even annotate it with thoughts and comments afterwards. If you take me up on the offer, I'm indifferent to the time control you choose. Of course though, longer time controls are better, just because if you're hoping to learn, it helps if you have time to think through the position.

Blitz is basically fast chess. On Chess.com, blitz is defined as game controls between 3 minutes and 10 minutes (but now 10 minutes is rapid). Most common time controls are 3+0, 3+2, and 5+0 (the numbers after the + mean increment, the amount of seconds you gain after playing each move).

I'm a little higher rated but just as prone to errors as anyone. Would be happy to play a daily game if you send me an invite or message me. Maybe there is a way to play with a handicap, say a knight or rook, to keep it competitive?

GordonJohn

Sounds good, though I am a good loser and would rather not play involving handicaps. If you are better than me and beat me more fine I can live with that. I am playing my friend this afternoon who is roughly the same level. Early 600s, another friend is around 1100 but he always beats me (except once) and it is less fun or interesting. So great any day but today. Let me know.
