    I know that, you know that, some should read before they get involved in the conversation! 😛

    You said he has to play a game first. He's not a chess player.

    The comments regarding slow play.....or no play, were made before the fact was known that slatist does not play chess, and is only here for the forums.

    You have more idle time on your hands.

    Andy,

    You are retired! All you do is chat instead of play chess. You been here just as long as me, but spend most of your time in the forums...I only retired 3 years ago...Have less time for chess now, than I had when I was working....LOL...Ironic eh!!!

    Not only is he "not a chess player" he is also "slow" at demonstrating this, as his not being a chess player has taken years to become known. Boy, he is as slow a Not Player as they come.

    You've won 1,000 games by timeout? Do you stay awake nights waiting for the skulls to pop up?

    But first we need to define "slow".

    Ha! And now a crusade against people who are not overly concerned whether slatist is a slow player, or a player slow to start playing, or hasn't started playing ~ and therefore isn't slow ~ because he isn't a player!

    He's not just slow at chess, he's slow at posting too.

    Andy,

    Actually it is over 1000 games. That would be twice as many as you've played wouldn't it? Those 1000 time outs were while I was working...LOL...I hit all skulls in clan games. I sleep like a baby at night, my friend. 😉

    A chess player is someone with a rating of 1099 or more.
