Chess/Rapid chess Games.


Dear Len

Do you feel that the Chess player who can play with both Hands in Rapid chess Games will have an edge over the Chess player who can play with only one Hand?.


Hi Prashant,

I actually do feel there would be a very slight advantage, since the player who can use both hands will always have the clock closest to his hand moving the pieces.  

It might only amount to small fractions of seconds but any little bit shaving off time helps.
