EDIT: Thanks for looking, folks! I've set up the games I wanted, with Conquistador.
I don't know whether it's appropriate to solicit a game opponent in the forums, but I can't use the normal game challenger for what I want, so here we go!
I'd like to find 1 opponent to play 4 online games (all 4 games against the same person) starting with the Danish Gambit, 2 games each with White and Black. This will be a new opening for me, and thus might be an opportunity for someone else to try something new too, but I don't mind playing someone experienced with the Danish Gambit. I play fairly slowly, so my opponent should be someone who doesn't mind 2 or 3 days for some responses, although likely not all my moves would have such a long gap.
Here's what I'm looking for, ideally:
Fixed starting moves: 1.e4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.c3 dxc3 . White's 4th moves will be the first "move" of our games.Game format: 2 sets of 2 simultaneous games (4 games total). For each set we'll each play one game with White and one with Black. I'd like to hold off starting both 2nd set games until both 1st set games are finished. Opponent's rating: 1650-1850, or pretty close.Games Rated: Yes (if they can be set up this way), preferred, although that's not a deal-breaker if the right person insists on unrated games. Maybe we can only play unrated games anyway, since I want to control starting colors. Move rate: 3 days per move (5 or 7 is OK too, if someone prefers that, but not 1 day).
If anyone likes my proposed settings and is interested in taking me up on it, or has questions, speak up with a post! Or you can message me privately if you prefer. In the unlikely event I get multiple responses I'll pick someone and respond to all the others so no one is left hanging.
By the way, if you happen to live in a country that's new for me (one that isn't yet on my opponents list, which is below my map) that would be a bonus, but it's certainly not a requirement!
Sure I would like to play. I prefer to play the black side and refute it, but I can get a better underestanding by playing white.
Conquistador-- I see you have a pretty fast time per move average. Did you see the part about me often going a couple days before responding, and is that a problem? If you say it's not a problem, great, and I'll set up the first two games in a few hours. Are you OK with 3-day rated (if possible-- they might have to be unrated) format?
Ill do it if u wanna challenge me, black or white, but im not as high rated as u wanted
I'm pretty sure TheGambitKing is always up for a challenge. If you messaged him I don't think he'd decline.
Aye, my average is somewhat low. Once I finish my quicker time control games, I will play mostly 14 days per move games. My time in the fall is limited with my classes. So my average should balance out. I have no problems with the time control. Feel free to set it up.
