    The only chess events around my area are the ones I start by getting out my set and wait  for someone to come by play.

    Ya'all... I'm going to the Las Vegas International Chess Festival.

It starts next month. I'll be with about 5 other people, and most of them will be playing in the tournament. (They're the brave ones.) (;

     

    Do you guys have any chess events coming up this summer? 

    You mean the National Open? I'm going to that one too! I'm traveling all the way from Vancouver for it. I'm in the U1400 section, since I have a grossly underrated CFC rating, on account of only playign it once/year.

    Bughouse Variation: King of the Hill

    One of my friends made up this game called KotH BugHouse

    Rules

    1.) There are many ways to win this game

    a~Get your king to the Middle 4 squares

    b~Win on Time(Classic)

    c~Checkmate

    d~Take King.

    2.) You may not drop in opponent's backrow nor may not drop pawns in the back row.

     

    So my 3 friends and 1 decided to try it out and decided to have a 10 minute round just to test it out. So the game begins and I began to turtle/ and cancerfy over half the board. My opponent kept dropping pieces so I couldn't really do much in the beginning. Then I got a knight and did a queen king fork and gave my partner a queen. After a few  minutes, my partner gave me 3 knights and 1 bishops along with 5 pawns. After wiping out his entire board except for his king, he started "Marching towards the middle 4 squares" . Then he won because i had put my pieces in the wrong spot.
