    I know it's a total noob thing, but I'm a total noob.
    Is it Online Tourney Blitz or something similar?
    Maybe it's Overweight Troll Birds?
    or Outdated Table Battles?
    Octagons Trapezoids and Boomerangs?
    Offcolor Tactics and Bluffs?

    I really don't know.

    Oh yeh, thanks! That would make sense. You have not idea how troublesome that was, not being able to figure that one out. I kept thinking correspondence vs. blitz. When you start thinking it stands for Oddly Tuber-shaped Balloons, you've got to stop and check yourself.

    I stop an check myself quite often 🙂

    Yeah OTB does stand for "Over The Board", i.e. real life, real time chess with a proper 3d board and a live opponent opposite you.
