[Feature Request] Automatic doubling

Hello,

[Feature]
1) I think it would be nice to have an option in the profile settings for automatic use of the doubling cube at the beginning of each tournament game.
2) This option would require another feature: if one of the players resigned in a tourney game within the first two or three moves then awarding of points should be irrelevant to whether the doubling cube was used or not.

[Reason]
1) The player who managed to click the doubling button first makes the opponent spend about a second on clicking "accept". Of course this second is not that important but it's quite annoying to have to waste it:).
2) Of course sometimes (very rarely for strong players) it's better just to resign immediately if the opponent has a much higher rating. In this case even after doubling a player should have several moves to resign with a minimum loss of points.

Thank you.

Or even better, there should be an option to deny it... first time it popped up I was so confused, couldn't cancel it.

If you try to deny the double cube option you just have to resign... It is like in a bet you risk more by losing after doubling.

Second point, what is the point of double cubing if you automatize it. Double cubing is supposed to do not in the beginning of the game but in the middle part when you have already won a piece or you are in a very advantagable position, although against someone around 300-400 points lower than you, you usually double cube in the beginning.

Re: [Feature Request] Automatic doubling

there is also a little tactic which is not known to many ppl,,, in a big tournament like 1 hr it will be better not to double at the beggining of first three games if you are sure that player will accept,,, and u have to double after getting a advantage so that u can gain huge amount of time instead of 1 or 2 points in first few games and this time can be used for getting 20 points like that in the end of game because of multiplier like 20 points for 11 th and 12 games and so on.,,,,tq
