    I think im better at OTB, but it is hard to tell because I've only ever played 900-1400 rated players at the chess club.

    I'm about equal.. I find my intuition is far better over a board because I'm willing to take crazy risks that I'm often a little more cautious about in CC.

    I haven't played enough serious CC to know, but I hope to get good at both in time. Though I would suppose CC since I have the time to calculate deeper. My blitz though is pretty bad and my bullet is shameful.

    it depends on what you learn on. also its easier to survey the whole board on a computer easily. also i find it easier to be creative in 3D idk why just is. i find my otb rating is better if i am given enough time. i like an hour to think minimum. i am able to handle 30 mins and still play a good game.

    Haven't played OTB chess in probably 10 years. Last time I did I got a rating of 1750ish or so by the USCF. My CC is close to 1600.

    I used to be real good at blitz, getting close to an 1800 rating on ICC at one point. Now I can't seem to play blitz to save my life.

    Best OTB in games with at least 1 hour per competitor, preferably more.
