    Your profile shows you have made no moves and are playing no games as of right now. Under "BigHoosty" anyway.

    I challenged you to a game. It is as yet unmoved and the timebank is beginning to tick away. This is one reason some people don't like to play p1200's.

    No points for games under two moves as you probably know.

    And I just wanted to answer the question the OP posed.

    First I thought I would have a nice game of chess...

    It's time we made blitz-only players identifiable as such. The profile item "move frequency" is useless; it should just give fast/average/slow options and we could add another for blitz-only. If they tick that box it could be automatically added to their forum title.

    I ask an opponent to not time me out, I'm enjoying the game, but life's a bitch. What happens? Guess. He quickly grabbed a time-out game that he was losing.

    You're talking blitz, yes? Time controls are part of the game. War is war, loser.
