That is what I would expect. For a club player, all the pieces being white would not make the slightest difference. They are at the brink of being able to play completely blindfolded. The tiniest reminder of where the pieces are would be enough to make them remember 100% accurately during the entire game. You kno which pieces are yours. You played them to there yourself!
