    I enjoy the tournaments, but I wish the country championships weren't random set position openings. I did not realize that the last time I entered one, and ended up playing funky positions. Fun enough, I suppose, and I played through it out of respect for the other players who had entered, but it was a lesson learned.

    Sort of like accepting a game from someone with ling time controls. Do it once, shame on you. Do it twice shame on me.

    I know exactly what you mean. I've had people slip in 1/0 time controls on me. I learned, and now I check before I make the first move.

    You must have been new on the site when that happened.

    Why?

    13 years on the site and you're still blundering your way around from one calamity to the next.

    Perhaps you are correct, but I've never accepted a challenge without first looking at the time controls!!! 😛 😉 Have you?
