Originally posted by Grandmousteryes, i use it for the end game but i'm going to start to use it as soon as the game has developed a bit. its easy to lose concentration and do something stupid or to not pay attention to what your opponent is doing.

I mentioned before about using the analysis board before making a move. Move the pieces around, and go over some variations. You might notice things better and make better moves. I tend to get lazy there, and make bad moves. Im going to try to use it more often

Originally posted by amir1I watched a guy playing a well know GM, in the old Manhattan C.C. Fri Night Blitz tourney, hit his clock so hard, and generly act like a gorilla in a cage, that the GM hung his queen, then walked out of the club, never to play there again.
In OTB chess you can actually Win a game if you throw your queen hard enough, hitting your opponent's vital organ/s (I recommend the eye as your target of choice).
That's one more difference between OTB chess and long distance chess.
