#3 is the only fair choice    (2009-09-24 20:16:32)

I've lost several games and tournaments due to carelessly inputing a move but I can't imagine ever asking my opponent for a redo. In the same vein, (...)


I agree with the Garvin's suggestion    (2009-09-01 03:41:29)

It might be fun to give it a try but I don't think that you would get too much separation in ELO between the top and bottom players. I think it will (...)
