Provisional moves would be a excellent idea!
Like "I play Qd1-Qd8# provisionally until you realize that you can take the queen by Kxd8 in that case I change my move to a more modest a2-a3. But If you don't see that you actually can take my queen, I let the move be permanent."
I like the idea of provisional moves.
Originally posted by mattwyricksay you are opening with e4 - there are several possible common variations on that opening - you may already know what move you will make depending on which variation the opponent chooses - gi-gah!
unrated games only.... you could act like you saw a bad move at any time and change your move if once your opponenet capitalizes
I don't follow - wouldn't these open a door to cheating if in rated games?

So what about conditional moves Russ? I know at least three corr chess sites with this feature (not going to advertise them here) and it works great, saves a lot of time, we are waiting!
