Fellow Chess Enthusiasts,

 

If there is interest, I will be hosting our second OD Chess Rapid tournament most likely on Saturday March 6th. I will be using LiChess (10+5) and you will need to make an account. More details to come. If you are interested, please fill out the poll.

I'm interested in watching, rather than playing, if that is ok.  I think I already have an account at the chess site, will have to dust it off.

In addition to the chess tourney, is there any interest within OD in just playing chess recreationally?  My health is bad to the point that even a friendly tourney might be to stressful, but a few casual games might be just what the doctor ordered.  Any interest in some casual games?

I'm always up for a game of chess (when I have the time...) 😉

I understand completely. On LiChess, they have correspondence game. I'm down for a game anytime and we can play slow, so it's less stressful. I hope your help improves.

I used to be a decent amateur enthusiast, but was never a member of the ACF, so my former skills may or may not be up to providing folks with a challenge.

OK I got those who posted followed, not sure if thats friends list or what. Ill be down for no time limit games, I should figure out how to actually play.. Back in the day we just played on the porch to pass time.. Now when I go to these sites they got 18000 Offenses/Defenses.. No idea where to begin. I do the Challenges/Puzzles but Idk if its because im always high or wat.. I just cant see "the path to victory" most the time.

Re the puzzles, yesterday I had managed to hit 1800, but then today my brain turned to mush, and I dropped all the way back down to the 1600's.

 

Just played my first few games, and managed too win 2 of 6, so not as horrible as I feared, but much left to be desired.  At least my worthy opponent wasn't bored out of his mind playing against me for playing so badly.  🙂

Yes Chanter already asked for a Discord channel and I created one this morning.  It's at the bottom of Discord "Chess Club".

 

 

I originally signed up for playing tonight but now I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it.  We'll just have to see how long my appointment takes.  Just letting you know I was flaking on purpose lol

I almost missed it as well, somehow my brain got fixated on the 6, and so I showed up at 5:30 thinking I was early, lol.  Had a blast though, and got to meet everybody.
