hey I haven't played correspondence much in the past, am I allowed to analyse by moving the pieces over the board, so far it's been blindfold

I think the CC rules are, if you post a move here, it counts as "committed". Here's a tip. Take game moves (including your move), paste it into a post here, surround it with {PGN} tags (use [] instead of {}) and press "Preview Post". Don't press "Submit Reply" unless you want to commit your move.

I just wanted to know whether I can analyse on a board at home, not sure what you thought I was asking

Zwischenzug

You can analyze anywhere you want, it's not against any rules.

michaelrichards
02-06-2009, 07:01 PM
I mean like, actually move the pieces around in the lines that I am analysing,
not just in my head

Yes you can do that. See the thread at http://chesschat.org/showthread.php?t=4462 if you want an idea of what people here consider acceptable in CC games.

Basically you can do anything except for use a computer engine or ask another person for advice. (In "freestyle" tournaments you can do those things as well.)

I'm sorry. I wasn't aware of the time between moves. Though Arbiter Duggan already made a ruling, declaring you as won, do you want to continue?

Arbiter Duggan is an idiot. Arbiter Duggan typed Zwischenzug's name instead of DeMann's name when Arbiter Duggan announced a ladder withdrawal.

My apologies to both players. Please continue.

However, for the record, I didn't declare a winner. I simply incorrectly declared that Zwisch had vacated the ladder.

why haven't you moved? the first 20 moves were instant, now it takes 3 days for this move?

Basil
04-06-2009, 10:33 AM
Michael, it hasn't been 3 days between moves.

- At the time of your post, it had only been a paltry 36 hours.
- Further your opponent had corresponded with you in this thread during that window.
- Further it is clear that I had caused a problem by incorrectly declaring your opponent had withdrawn
- Further your opponent has already made provisional moves (in post #31) and you haven't responded to them!
- In any event, your opponent is entitled to take a week to make a move under the present rules which I might address soon.

Now. Suck it up. Slow it down. Read the pgn. Nominate your move. Read the provisional moves in response (I have made them red). Please try and keep up.

Thanks

Howard

it was his move not mine, I understand that most things read and written on the internet seem very critical and their sensitivity is amplified (maybe because people think captain planet is listening) but I wasn't worrying about it or complaining, I was just eager to finish the game!! I was simply wondering why the first 14 moves took 2 minutes and then he hadn't played a move for a day or two, there aren't very many plans in the position, there are only 3 pieces left more than half of which can only go to one square lol, I am not used to this set up, I have never played any correspondence on the internet or in any other form

so, sorry if I seemed to rush you, I thought you had stopped playing or something but now I understand how the game works, you can take one week for your move, go for it, thanks
