Online Chess vs Over-the-Board Chess by Dagne

24/08/2020

Is it true that online chess encourages us to make a move quicker than when playing over the board?! Is it true that when playing online we tend to choose ‘to do’ rather than ‘to be’ (The definition of these two concepts can be found in Jonathan Rowson’s book ‘Chess For Zebras’ here https://dagnechess.co.uk/shop-for-recommended-chess-books/) ?! And it may well be, that we go for the attack on our opponent’s king more often in the online chess game than in our over-the-board or face-to-face, as they call it, game!!!
