Slowly advancing... now 2457 April 2020 in the miserable, dying 5 minute ICC pool.
Too slow for 3 minute chess!
Lifelong adherent of the 15 minute pool. There are some good players like Deepstrategy, tirantes, puretepy, but only spuradic sightings. I wish I could play the 15 minute pool without getting 5 players 600 points below my rating before I get 1 player at my rating.
1 minute chess is great for improvement! :) :) :)
The ICC is legendary! It's been around since 1995, and I am getting some players with accounts since it's very creation. It's fascinating to see such devoted members.
ICC Should creat pools for time control like 3+2 and 5+1, I detest flagging players who have slow mouses and I have even less of a desire for them to do the same to me.

It's good see that there are players with 3000 blitz ratings, I wonder why we don't see them playing.
ICC has great players, but you have to seek for a game at the right hour of the day. If you're unlucky, you may not get a single good player!
