    Novelties.

    Sure you might have played a game with a position that you can't find in any database, but did you do it on purpose? No!

    These are what I call "patzer" novelties, that probably have resulted from your unsound play.

    Real novelties are thought out time-bombs to designed to crush the opponent, not the fruits of some silly class A player's poor understanding of positional principles.


    Behold, a cache of deadly WMD's:

    Of course a resource like this will be lost on you silly patzers, many of you only rated over 2000 in turn-based play.


    Look up on Mount Olympus, and despair! I'm comfortable in stating that most people on here, despite how much time you spend on opening study, are nowhere near the level of the author of this precious tome:

    It's called turn-based because you get an allotted amount of time to make your move, then it's the opponent's turn.

    Most OTB games you don't get time limit per turn, but you have a set amount of time to play the entire game.

    I always assumed that they started calling it turn based to attract failures of RTS games without the stigma of being Correspondence Chess.

    Not such a novelty...

    So proper old school correspondence chess isn't turn based? 10 moves in 40 days certainly seems similar to the OTB x moves in t minutes.
