    I just played a few quickies! Blitz is totally fun. People shouldn't worry about loosing! I blew chunks my first day/time. Was up in my first 3 games, then blundered a rook in all 3. A draw on my 4th.. 2nd day ever playing blitz (today) I won both games. Loosing is fun too, as you get better.
    So everyone just go and play

    I played a nice game. It would help if the ducks around the pond took to the water.

    Mad Rook what happened to the p.m I sent you? Do you take to the water?

    I had a nice win over Ceders. Blitz is blitz so I don't take the game seriously or even save the game. Its just for amusement.

    that's because RHP blitz is unrated. most people play their blitz on ICC, FICS or playchess.

    I met two 2000+ players in blitz room, all of two dropping material, opening with e3 or so.... Interesting ....

    there's nothing wrong in opening with e3 in blitz. I've played even a sort of mirrored dutch leningrad castling long and it worked okay. anything weird goes in blitz, there's just no time to 'refute' anything.
