    I lost a couple of 1 min lightning on RHP Blitz and thought I was becoming weaker. I played on Playchess and demolished 9 opponents before my last opponent beat me at lightning. Difference is RHP Blitz no premove.

    Managed to win this lightning game on RHP with 30 secs on the clock and my opponent lost on time. No premove sucks but at least I can win lightning games on RHP now.

    Why would you bother with RHP blitz when you've got PlayChess?

    Besides, what points do they cost you here? the games are unrated.
    I agree premove would be nice but don't hold your breath, Russ has already stated he is not going to develop the blitz site any more than it already is.
    I would like to see other blitz games but you can't do that either like on ICC.

    The blitz button is just underneath the log out button so its just for a bit of fun. Kinda like using the forums here whereas we probably also belong to other forums elsewhere.

    Not quite true.

    We are on the private beta of some new server tech that I was holding out for. This will allow me to mature the blitz site in a big way.

    I have only one problem now. Flash or not to Flash. iPads were made for this, so thanks "Steve" for throwing a spanner in the works.
