Good evening, i'm new to correspondence chess -but regard myself as a solid hobby chess player- and looking for someone playing a little match (i thought of two games in parallel: one with white and one with black pieces) with me... thanks for any interest, Betty

Hi Turbo, I will play.
Parent - - By Universe (*) [eu] Date 2011-05-26 08:57
I want Play too. Mark do you remember than you challenge Harvey W. and you wait for him. I will play those games vs Turbo. Bye
Hi Turbo
my first move is 1.f4
Parent - - By Mark Eldridge (****) [gb] Date 2011-05-26 12:07
Your right i do have to play Harvey sometime. I will leave it upto Turbo to decide who plays.
Parent - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-26 12:14
If you're interested i play two games with each of you both, please give me your first white-move and will submit my moves then.
Parent - - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-26 09:11
Thanks for your interest, I will play you both (meaning 2x2 games) if you don't mind. I followed a few of Marks games in this forum and liked his style, and of course i'm impressed by Universe "fighting" to play me ;-).

@Mark: Please give me your opening move for your white game.

@Universe: Nice opening, will think about it a little and submit my two moves then.

Have fun and enjoy our time here!

Thank you for you kind comments.
Parent - - By Mark Eldridge (****) [gb] Date 2011-05-26 19:50
It would be a good idear to set up 4 different games on here can you do this?
Parent - - By Mark Eldridge (****) [gb] Date 2011-05-26 19:51
If we all make moves on the same thread we won't know were we are.
Parent - - By Universe (*) [eu] Date 2011-05-26 21:36
I have recommendation:
I want play 1 game only (as white). I don't want play as black.  And my first step is known 1.f4 !! Mark you can play 1 game also as black.
Parent - - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 04:53
No way, i need a white-game also to cover my f4-crush ;-)... see the new thread "Universe vs. Turbo".
Parent - - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 05:01
I'll play this one game, I have enough time for one. But I move at about a move ever other day or so.
Parent - - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 05:07
Nice... would be fine for me also, i leave it up to Universe. Thanks for your kind interest!
Parent - - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 05:10
Well if you are still around after these mini matches. I will also give you a 2 game set. :wink: I just have a lot of games going.
Parent - - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 05:18
I guess you all will teach me a few eye-opening lessons in my first correspondence games here, but i'm a tough one! ;-)
Parent - - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 05:25
Well I wouldn't go that far. :lol:

In reading your profile. You like fast cars, and you have a Porsche Turbo. So my sure you have enough for a pretty good CPU. Don't worry I will be on my toes as well. :wink:
Parent - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 05:36
Oh no, i'm sorry to disappoint, I wished i had my own (my brother has one), sadly i'm just an business-administration apprentice with Porsche AG here, and being a student my budget for my little aged notebook was also not that big... still i hope i can play a few nice moves!
Parent - - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 05:39
Will use Stockfish 2.1.1ja and Rybka 2.3.2a for my analysis!
Parent - - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 05:46
Good luck to you. We could start now if you wish.
Parent - - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 05:49
Yes, i guess Universe is also glad when you take over his game with the black pieces. Good luck to you too! May i ask your first name?
Parent - - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 05:56
You can call me Jimmy.

I'm organizer of WBCCC-World Blitz Corr. Chess Championship.

As we speak the 1st edition of my tournament is going on. We are in round 3 right now.
Parent - - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 06:00
Jimmy, nice to get known to you.

You're the organizer of the WBCCC tournament? Nice work! I already clicked through a few games yesterday afternoon, especially Marks ;-) (->resulting in 1.Nf3 instead of Berlin-wall *g*)

Betty
Parent - - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 06:05
Yes many good games. I could show you links to what people consider the best games.
Parent - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 20:49
Would be nice Jimmy! Thanks!
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) [mx] Date 2011-05-27 08:07

> I have enough time for one.


What about time for our battle of the methods match? :wink:
Parent - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 08:09
posting move now. :wink:
Parent - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 08:10
Done sorry for the delay, I had the move done about an hour ago.
Parent - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-05-27 05:01
I will play in the same thread as "Universe vs Turbo"
Parent - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-27 04:56 Edited 2011-05-27 05:10
I opened the thread "Mark Eldridge vs. Turbo" for our two games... should be manageable as we always move on both boards at the same time.

edit: Typo
Parent - - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-29 22:48
Anyone else wanting to play with me? I have still a few free resources and want to gain experience... Thanks!
Parent - - By mocha1961 (***) [us] Date 2011-05-29 23:01
lets play
Parent - By Turbo (***) Date 2011-05-29 23:13
Thanks! I created two threads for our two games. Have fun!
- By Turbo (***) Date 2011-06-09 12:00
Will be away over weekend (local holidays), have fun all!
