Up Topic Correspondence Chess / Correspondence Chess / 100 Euro challenge at FICGS
- - By Scott (****) Date 2011-02-26 03:58
There has been some boasts and semi-challenges made during this tournament. This thread is a real challenge. Both players have to register at FICGS and buy E-points. 1 Euro =1 E-point. There are 4 different formats for CC, #1, Rapid Silver-10 E-points each entry fee, 2 games, each player get one White and one Black, winner takes all. Payments are made through FICGS using PayPal. In case of a draw (one win apiece), the money is split. Rapid time control is 30 days + 1 day increment per move. #2, Rapid Gold, same rules except that the entry fee is 100 E-points each. #3 & #4 is Class Silver & Class Gold. Only difference is time control. The Class tours are 40 days for each 10 moves, no increment.

Harvey challenged Paul and then backed off. Alex and I discussed it briefly, nothing was done. This way there is no reason not to play if you have the nerve. FICGS gets a 2% handling fee.

So in a friendly way, I hereby challenge any Rybka Forum player to any of the 4 formats, Thank you, Scott

> using PayPal


I do not know a single person serious about their finances using ebay's bucketstore... :neutral:,
wished FICGS would accept real money too... :grin:, but guess other agreements can still be found. :wink:
Btw., am i the only one missing Garvins "move this thread, has nothing to to with WBCCC"-post? :smile:

I did not move this thread :wink:

I did because it was out of place and I didn't want to bring more friction to this thread.

My previous post was just a chuckle for SchachProfi's enjoyment (hopefully).

On the serious side, I did consider moving the thread to start with, but normally in these internet moderation issues, moderators do not moderate in the threads they are participating in. So I just left it to you to make a decision. :cool:

I support this idea, but this thread should be moved from here.

I would prefer using this forum and client software to post moves, I don't like FICGS format.

And I make the same offer to any rybka forum player in the blitz silver format. 20 moves in 1 hour, repeating time periods.

10 epoints/euros to challenge.

I would even be willing to play a match of 8 games or so.

And to those who do not know, Scott and I will not be playing each other as we have already played a 24 game match.

Scott, do you actually expect any of the big mouths from here to actually take you up on your offer?
Parent - - By Scott (****) Date 2011-02-26 12:54
I don't know Garvin. I just wanted to point out that if players wanted to play a match, with money or without, there is an easy and reputable place to do so. No TD is needed.

Scott, i already persuaded in my game-thread that we will play a match.

Still another long classical-chess-draw-struggle doesn't warm my heart too
much... What do you think about a little Gothic chess-challenge or some
other kind of chess variation (with way more pieces on the board)?
Ya, be a man and play Gothic chess with Alex! :twisted:
(i swear that i would be my first Gothic chess games ever,
i'm just interested in it because classic chess is boring to me
with all the available resources - and even at this time-controls)

Garvin is not just a strict rule-follower, he can heaten up things well too... :lol:

I thought this was a chess site for men, not the lady's Bridge club. :roll:
