Right on, he has good poker mind and is a cool dude. I was gonna take some action but lost my phone and fell out of touch like an idiot. So I assume he's gonna bing it. I'd still be happy for him, though.

Blitz is fun. I got tempbanned from ICC, playing on Free Internet Chess Server. If all you want to do is play games, it's almost as good.
Best way to test your intuition is 3 0 imo. 5 0 gives you too much time to calculate if you bust through the opening quickly. Calculating is easy with enough time, but if you want to figure out where to put your pieces in middlegame situations (which is the meat of the game) you have to develop your intuition.
In other words, you gotta learn how to be a feel player too, just like HSLHE (/troll?)
