Bovu, you shouldn't fear the French. I've had great success against it in USCF tournaments playing the Tarrasch (3. Nd2), if they play 3...Nf6 then the e5, f4, Ne2, Nf3, Bd3 set-up is quite strong. The bad bishop black gets on c8 is also a plus.
just played a 10-min game. Opponent ran out of time and I had 5:45 left. Message came up: MOVE 4050_Q_58:1...After a couple of minutes it began a countdown: u10...u9...u8...when it reached zero I lost on time. Terrible glitch in this game.
I had 1 secods left whe LDB ran out of time and I lost on time. I got tricked into playing him too. H is talentless and was losing on the board as well ut he eithr cheats or has super-fast pc/isp so plays only to win on time. Get a life LDB
chesshotel, I keep getting disconnected. The board disappears and it's replaced by a grey circle, with a smaller filled grey circle inside. In the inside grey circle there is a white exclamation point.
