It's running smoothly so far. If anyone has any suggestions for the next tournament let me know. Be sure to tell me what you did and didn't like by the end of the tournament.
I think Narue's idea of a Chess ladder sounded good.. Where we are all ranked, and it is constantly changing as we all play each other.. then every once in a while have a big tourny like this.
I guess we should really set a time for the next tournament.
Oh, is it taking yall a long time to make moves?
I've been playing with quintoncoert for almost 3 hours now. *sigh ...longer than i expected. I dunno how im gonna manage my 20 hours trip to toronto which commence after 3 hrs from now. *sigh
Whoa.. dude, you know u can save the game and exit, right? We don't want to rush you guys into playing.. you have a whole another week or two to finish the next rounds in the tournament..
From now on, if a game is lasting too long, and you need to leave or something.. then simply tell your opponent that you wish to save the game and play it later. There is an option I saw in yahoo that allows you to save the game.
I think next time I will have people send me a copy of the game moves so I can post those under the game details of the brackets. That way everyone can see how they were played.
sorry that i did not report last night. my connection broke of just as the game was over.
I had beaten jocamps but the outcome of the game was not a true reflection of his skill. jocamps is really good. i am willing to bet good money that he is going to win his next game.
next time that that i play him it might be different. narue no longer is the only one i have to prepare for. depending on whether narue or i goes to the loser bracket and what happens there with jocamps there is every chance that i may face him again.
I don't know when you would like to play. Post a rough time frame and we shall decide.
Originally I wanted time to prepare for you but there is only one guy in my town whom are any competition and he works late. No. Its a small town. I am not that good.
So post times for when it will be convenient for you. If you post after 19:00 GMT I shall only be able to respond on Monday so I suppose this weekend is out. Well at least I shall get this guy for practise all weekend [ :-) ] and be ready for you!
>Post a rough time frame and we shall decide.
I can make time in the evenings (GMT -5) between around 6pm and 10pm, or anytime during the weekend.
>Originally I wanted time to prepare for you
I don't mind playing a few practice games, if you want to prepare for me by practicing with me. That way you know what I play like and at what level, and I know what strategies are most likely to work on you. ;)
OK. If you are good then I would like to practice against you. jocamps is really good and unless i beat you and you beat him I am going to meet him again.
But we would just have to agree when a game is going to be practice and when the real game is going to start.
BTW. The times you are giving me are confusing me. i have always been under the impression that -5 is west of greenwhich? you say evening but at your place it should now be morning? Or do you surf the net before going to work!
