I enjoy meeting players from around the world, especially to learn about where you live and how things are going with you. I love the chess and the interaction. I play very regularly and don't care if you have to step away from the board occasionally. When schedules coincide I like to play many moves. I do like the freedom of 3 days/7days and prefer NOT to play games with shorter time limits. Many of my opponents have become long term friendly adversaries. I like that.
