RE: Hivechess Tournament Round 2: @tungphong was the winner!

Well, I am accustomed to it: I know that if I cannot reach a big middle game advantage, I will probably lose on time or make a big mistake due to time pressure. :)
Swiss-system tournaments without the berserk option are much easier for me to play, and I also like it, if the time control in Arena mode is so fast but with increment (like for example the 2+1) that the berserkers have problems to get enough points.
Of course rapid chess would be optimal for my playing style but I understand that's way too time consuming.

It's completely alright for me if the fast young players get the prizes (they can use the money very well, I guess), but sometimes from a chess players point of view it's annoying to throw away so many games in which I cannot convert my advantages.
