    How many people have been sent the link to the rated blitz room by Russ? I've been on there all evening with GreenPawn, Korch and a few others, but I thought it would be a bit more popular. Perhaps it's still in beta. Any idea when it will become public, Russ?

    Current standings:

    GreenPawn - 2310
    Fat Lady - 2150
    Korch - 2145

    GreenPawn has had a lot of luck, I'm sure he won't remain at #1 for long.

    Is it just the normal blitz? I was on earlier.

    Don't you worry FL I'll always be above you.

    Great new feature - well done Russ.

    No, it's a different one. Much better interface and the games are rated (obviously doesn't affect your correspondence rating). I can't find a link to the player tables for blitz, but you can see them when the players are connected.

    Just click on the Blitz table icon.

    Changing name to Greenpawn - King blitzer

    I get sent to the old blitz site when I click on the icon, I have to enter the link that Russ sent me to get to the new one.

    Edit: OK - I cleared my cache, deleted all temporary files and cookies and restarted my browser and now it works fine when I click on the icon, I get taken to the new blitz site.

    It's brilliant.

    The system must have storing games and results for months.
    There are nearly 3,000 players on the list (and I'm No.1).
    Not going to play anymore as it may lower my %

    It must be April Fools in the part of the world you are from. I deleted my cache and still get http://www.redhotpawn.com/blitz/blitzchess.php I can see Fat Lady in the room but its unrated.

    It's rated - there is a league table.

    I got it working now, I have a bit of catching up with you top guys - I think I could get to No.1 in blitz around here...

    Don't tell me your all old gezzers? What is the link when your browser hovers over the room you are in?
