Even though I play more online playing OTB is more fun and exciting than online. Maybe when quarantine restrictions are loosened a little I could play OTB because with dual citizenship there are couple loopholes.

I agree. I have just played two USCF tournaments and one NWC tournament, and I got the same nervousness as I did for OTB games. I guess these rated tournaments just make me nervous.

Oh, shoot. Quoted the wrong guy. Sorry Leo

How do you play online?

Depends on the quality of opponents you can find in real life. Online you are matched relatively evenly so you should win about half the time. In real life I don’t play with anyone good.

Dude, all chess.com games are online! Don't tell me you just use it for forums and socializing.

They just had me take a piece that wasn't on the square diagonally forward from my pawn. I say probably not Llama 45. There are bugs in the programming. bet

easier to get a game online? yes

It was the last pawn lesson. I like to be shown things I can't see. no mistake about it.

I've always thought OTB was harder as well, since many people I've seen have lower OTB ratings than Chess.com rating, but I am not sure if that is an accurate statement or not

JakuJosh

I still don't like the improbable game scenarios and meaningless queen sacrifices to train you into killer scenarios. I understand when others explain it. I don't like your attitude.

JakuJosh

you all showed me the right of my error in introducing someone back to chess.

I know! My chess.com rating (rapid) is almost 1300, but I am an 800 in OTB rating.
