Re: Re: Re: Conditionals

Hi John,

I'd like to see conditionals back. They do speed up the game. There are a lot of automatic recaptures, as an example, on which time could be saved. In the Sicilian defence I always used to offer a condtional at the move 3 recapture. I would move 3. d4 if cxd4 then 4. Nxd4. It was a time saver because without the conditional the reply might sit in my inbox a week before I bothered to make the move 4. Nxd4 if I was working on other games. It didn't put me in any time problems but it did slow down the game.

Taking away the conditionals is not a way to speed up games.
