    Well everyone, those are my games Ravello is bleating about so I will take the right of reply.

    Hey Ravello, whats ur problem? Here you are whinning in the forums about how it's sooooo hard to cope with a mere 50 games and yet somehow seem to find the time to criticise the way I manage my 200+ game load.

    The other point is that it appears you simply do not know how the timeout/timebank system works.
    Whenever you move my timebank is not effected until the 3 day t/o period has expired and that applies to every subsequent move you make, and I am happy to let it nibble away. Then I move and you move and then the 3 days starts again etcetera etcetera .

    If you want to move 28.5 seconds after I do then by all means play like that but I will use all my available time to make my moves knowing full well, and I will be blunt here, that you will not be there in 40 moves!

    I've looked at a few of ur agames in the New Server Tourney and noticed that in some games you have made 30 and 40 moves but in others only 3 and 4?

    That is not good game management and the very reason that you struggle. And thats all I have to say about that

    did ravello criticise you? i do not see criticism here, just questioning.

    as a newer player ravello is right to be concerned of an escalating gameload - and keep it under control. Well done !

    as for ravello getting some of the games finished quickly by putting in the time and effort and moving fast - why do you say that is bad? do you say your rating is a little higher than ravello's and so he should copy you? if so then maybe you should check out the playing style of Mr. dantes.

    p.s. a cheeky sigh

    Hey skeeter what's your problem?Why are you so pissed off?I was only asking,I simply didn't know that if you move after T/B started the 3 days T/O started again!
    You say I criticise your way to manage games..........can you tell me where and when I did that?
    And how about YOU criticising my way to manage games?I just try to concentrate on fewer games..........
    I apologyze if I can't handle my mere 50 games instead of your 200+ games , I'm not a genius like you..................

    Yeah, I guessed someone would ask for this.

    I will try to take a break from RHP Live 2(and changing nappies) and do a few minor pieces of RHP work like this tomorrow.
