Slow Chess League: August tournament signups now open

Since I moved earlier this year, I expect that playing in OTB tournaments won't be part of my future for a while, at least not on a regular basis. This was the same situation I was in when I started this blog, but I was able to find useful tournament-style games online at the Slow Chess League. Their August tournament signups are now open, I plan on participating in the 45/45 section.

In general, I find that the game quality isn't quite as good (on my part) when playing at that time control, versus the OTB longer ones that I prefer. However, it does encourage more ruthless and efficient thinking, which helps in all aspects of chess.
