    If you are serious, i cannot challenge you because you only accept players above 1400

    I noticed you've already gone 2000+ in blitz. the speed chess tournaments have been going well I take it? If I remember right, you were still under 1900 in blitz before that last selo-update? quite a pace you've got there... how much do you train nowadays?

    I prefer chess games where you have to plan and think a lot. You seem to be good at both blizt and non blizt Is it ok for you to teach me non-blitz chess?

    I got my first blitz rating year and half ago and it was 1903. I went over 2000 in last august (Joukkuebliksteissä.

    It is such a pity there are so few blitz tournaments in Finland. In fact, I have not played rated blitz games since last summer...

    I usually don't mind playing unrated games for training purposes. I have two such game going right now (although, one of them is rated). It's usually with people about the same rating as myself, though. The deal is this:

    If I make a bad move or my opponent thinks I could have made a better move, then (s)he'll tell me. I do the same for him/her. This is good training. You can learn alot just by doing this. But the opponent should have a rating close to your own.

    I was challenged by someone with a much lesser rating than me. I am now sort of telling him/her what (s)he should think about when playing. That is a onesided training game, and hopefully when (s)he becomes a GM (s)he'll help me out.

    I will accept no more games with people that has a really low rating in comparison to me. But when you get around my rating (a hundred below or above), don't hesitate to send a request for an unrated training game.
