I really cant understand why people need 14 [or more] days for 1 move even if they ...[text shortened]... ng 55 games or whatever. Unless they are restricted to times they can use a computer of course.
14 days a move is too long for my taste, but I can see how some might enjoy doing very thorough analysis over the course of days, in search of a very high quality game. Personally, I'm much more likely to play 1 move per day. That gives me time to put a decent amount of thought into each and every move, and yet still gets the game done soon enough.
