    Which site do you prefer, FICS or PlayChess.com, and why?

    (I assume I'm "safe" in asking this since RHP doesn't offer this method of play. I don't mean to take away from RHP or "go against the grain of forum etiquette". RHP is by far the best coded and easiest to navigate correspondence chess site out there.)

    You can play long chess games at "play blitz" on rhp. I do not prefer FICS because I do not earn the winning position within 2 hours of thinking only to learn that my opponent disconeccted when I forked him ! I dunno about other site!

    I'm sorry, but since I don't play blitz, I've never noticed the fact that you can play long games (up to 60 minutes, it looks like) at the RHP blitz microsite.

    Yeah, but RHP games are still unrated so I rather play at FICS. But I hate cheating which is very often there..

    I heard Chesspark is rather new and good, but I do not know if that's true.
