Whenever I first log on to Chess.com I always check which players I'm playing with are on-line and I make my moves first for the players on-line then I go to the games w/players that are off-line...It would be nice if everyone did the same...I think.
Right texaspete, I didn't intend for that comment to turn into a debate. My point is that when I sign in I make my moves on the games in which my opponent is online, this gives them the opportunity to make a move again before they go off-line if they chose to do it...sometimes I make all my moves and have to wait awhile...but nevertheless, it's not an issue nor is it a problem...
It's a good general principle, but sometimes you have a game where your next move is quite obvious, and other games that take some time to decide on the best move... Sometimes I just have to leave a game until the next day to make my decision, because my brain just isn't up to the task that day!
I personally try not to take on many games with less than 5 days per move because that's my comfort zone (for many reasons that have nothing to do with chess), and I never expect a game to move faster than its move time-limit. If I wanted faster games, I'd choose only 1-day games.
I make my moves first for the players on-line then I go to the games w/players that are off-line...It would be nice if everyone did the same...I think.
This was the bit i was commenting on.. i didn't expect sarcasm back when i wasn't giving it !
I agree with both DiniM and Texaspete but I don't see a lot of difference either way. I enjoy playing direct with another on line but live chess is still a little fast for me.
haha yes, i was almost tempted to ask how far your spitting distance was
[temptation got the better of me]
LOL. That takes me (way) back. The trick to that contest was priming yourself with a few slugs of Orange Crush before the match began. Chess is so much more high-brow.
I just do that little song ...Catch a Tiger by it's Tail...
Two people apologize to each other on a thread? What bizarre corner of the internet have I stumbled onto?!?
Seriously, I think this is why I like this site...
