    If you have to choose between maybe mate in x and an easy major advantage, it's often best to keep it simple. Mate (or resignation) will follow anyway.

    Always play with (at least) a 5 second bonus.

    You will rarely run out of time, unless the Queen's are still on the board, or you haven't gotten out of the middlegame.

    Endgame knowledge can be implemented rather quickly, in most cases.  That's all @MiceyMan needed to do.  Smile

    Nah, some of us simply won't suffer fools gladly.

    It's just a character flaw, that we need to work on.  Smile

    It's ok. I don't need to prove myself to anyone. I just wanted to find that mate.
