3 months on ChessWorld. In the beginning I had an invitation game and then ended up in a "newcomers tournament" and found myself sitting with some 24 boards to play on. very stressful. I forgot my analysis between moves (used a lot of time to recover each game for every move). Started to be careless (just to finish moves and get on), made blunders. Fortunately my opponents playing strength varied a lot on these boards so my blunders were, in many cases, forgiven. Finally I got through this starting tournament (although I think some games are still running)and managed to get down to some 4-6 boards at any time. This suit me much better and I make better analysis (on the very helpful analysis board) and better moves. Based on my experience fewer boards at any time make for better quality chess. I look for opponents with the same philosophy/experience since i find that they generally also respond more quickly which make the game more enjoyable.
