tpstar: <patzer2> At least bullet and blitz are "real chess" so to speak. Our teaching academy prohibits Bughouse/Double Speed except at the very end of practice if kids want to unwind. That variant teaches tricks, not tactics. But he should avoid any blitz games right before or during

tpstar: <Keyser Soze> At the moment, I am disgusted with these British posters who spend their lives hurting others. You know I mean. People must pick sides. That is the only way forward. So where's the donut?! I have a surprise. :P
