3|0 for me; you can't really use berserking if you've got an increment. 5|2 is just too long...

I prefer blitz 3/2, like my fellow club mates at Mutual. Cheers.

5 min or less for me - 3/2 my favourite . Cant do anything over 6mins online anymore :(

Generally prefer quicker games online - 5|0 or less. Preferred is 3|2 but also partial to some 1|0 bullet (think I’m in the minority for that though!)

Can cope with slow Blitz. Prefer something a bit slower. Would enjoy an occasional Chess 960.

Personally Blitz. But reckon you should perhaps mix it up to suit all palettes & maximize interest! Good job gettin this thing up n runnin Phil…
