Anyone interested in [another] EvC chess tournament?
If so, sign up at Chess.com, post your username, and start playing!
First two people to post their usernames play against each other (second poster sends a challenge to the other member's username).
Once you are in a challenge, the challenger can make a post declaring the game started and who the players are.
I'll start: My username is J0NLEE
Winners play winners; losers play losers. Last one standing is the EvC Chess Grand Master. Ratings don't matter.
Enjoy.
Jon

Re: Sign In
Might I add that participants should also sign in here so that we know who is playing?
Yup; that's the idea.
Second person to post in the pair creates a challenge to the first; once accepted, they make a post here telling us they are playing.
Are ya in?
Jon

Well Versed in Chess
The Royals gathered one by one,
From far away did many come.
Kings brought queens and queens brought kings;
And little boys the bishop brings.
He laid them out. At four apiece,
To total eight; each on a leash.
Between the mighty castle walls,
Stepped forth the horses from their stalls.
And all were suited rank and file;
To stand their ground but for a while.
For naught could match the white king's greed.
Who first set charging on his steed.
Thus tumult struck each embassy,
As wars broke out at EvC.

Love your enemies!

Omni keeps forking me.
I'm really no good at this.

I just joined as caffeine-evc, because I'm not very imaginative. Who should I be challenging?
On the tournament at FA, we came up with a points system that I kind of liked.
Everyone plays everyone else once. Points are awarded for wins, draws, and losses.
Highest point holder wins the tournament.
I like +1 win, 0 draw, -1 loss.
What do y'all think of that?

Re: Over here!
Omni's quite the clever player. I've been forked by his knight in our single game more than I've ever forked anyone in all my playing!

I just had a look at your game, and the first thing that struck me was that I didn't think I'd ever see anyone open with f3 before. I went and looked it up on wikipedia, and thought you might be interested in their assessment:
quote:
Of the twenty possible legal first moves, 1.f3 is considered to be the worst one.
(sorry - have to get in some laughs prior to my own humiliation)
As Phat has been pointing out to me, my game as of late has been horrible. I told him my brain is deteriorating; I can't think of what else it could be.
