I've been playing some fast games recently and it always frustrates me when I name the game 'aim to finish today' to find the player makes 3 quick moves, then doesn't move for another 20 hours because it's 1/0 game and they're not forced to. In principal, I have no grudge against these people - they are moving ...[text shortened]... er is sleeping. I like quick games but I don't want to force anyone to stay up all night!
Then why not play blitz?
1 day should be the minimum.
The reason is simple:
RHP is global. When you are awake, then I am asleep. When I wake up, then you go to bed. One move a day is a garantee that I am awake when it is my turn to make a move.
If I wanted a quick game, then I would play blitz.
RHP is primarily a correspondence chess site.
