Oh and I ll probably will take a break of 10 minute after 1.5 hours of playing -

4United  abbyknotChessHere Moderator2018-03-29 01:58:46
Sounds good to me! BTW, I believe the first 3 time controls are rated, but the 5 min is unrated. Is that correct?-

5France  LerouxJPGrandMaster awarded to world-class chess masters2018-03-29 04:01:58
yes it is correct 1/0 2/0 3/0 are rated but the 5/0 are unrated-

6United  neverherebefore2018-03-29 06:23:16

Well, I remember something about there being more adventures on a chessboard than on the seven seas. Rough, smooth, there was all of that today. Come next week and observe, waterproofs optional.-
