    I never played postal chess,but they had a rule where you could make your game move,then propose a move for your opponent(the if part...
    if you play this move) then you make your next move.
    say this for exaplmle

    1.e4...e5
    2Nf3,,,(if Nc6,then 3.Bb5)

    a simple example
    have you ever discussed this as a feature or option ??
    if so disreguard this post lol

    I think this has been discussed before it's definately in the site ideas somewhere... search through it there.

    Thanks for the threads dude
    It looks as if all posts on the topic were positive except this one...

    It gets suggested every now and then. Some agree (typically fast players), others don't (correspondance purists if you like).

    I don't see the "purist "argument as it has been a postal option for a long time.Maybe it is an issue with security or software or something else.I just had ta ask.lol
    I would be interested in hearing more about it myself.
