[QUOTE="jim_shorts"][QUOTE="brucewayne69"] good deal I guess winner of each game will play eachother for the "championship" Who is BruceWayne69? And why did you go d4 for your first move?brucewayne69
d4 is a legitimate opening.

e4>d4 Who is your favorite chess player besides Kasparov and Carlsen? I'll go with Aronian. The guy is a beast

All time? Or just right now? I dunno, I guess I like Anand quite a bit. I followed his world championship matches a few years back and they were pretty exciting.  Also no I haven't started.   I sent the invite, but he's playing white and hasn't moved yet.

you can join You can either have a bye or play someone else. I'll try to find someone. Who is brucewayne on chess.com? I'm playing him, obviously it's someone who's on GS, probably Dave.

I guess current. Anand is a beast too. Him and Kramnik have some great matches. The one guy I don't like is Nakamura. He is quite the sore loser and is unprofessional when upset (huffing and puffing and even growling lol). In my game, I made a silly move. DIdn't cost me a piece, but I could've won a knight or bishop, because I was forking him. Dang it.

LOL I'm going to friend you so I can see what happened. And I'll edit the OP You'll play tocool340 if he responds. If not, you'll play the winner of our game. @pariah, I guess we can do a loser bracket too. Stick tight, I've got a checkmate in the works. And who am I playing? I need to know so if you win I can say who it was!

Did pretty well in a chess tournament (real life ) today. Could've done better though. The guy I was playing had a genius end game. Still reeling about it.
