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. They have a tournament going on which I won't be part of (at least not this time nor in the near future) but I'll get to enjoy the chess festivities..... so many chess festivites... I'm so excited! 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
1.) There are many ways to win this game
a~Get your king to the Middle 4 squares
b~Win on Time(Classic)
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.
Chicago Open starting this Friday - I'll be in the Under 2300 Section, and a friend of mine will be in the Under 2100 Section.
Wow.... very nice, very nice...!!! Respect.
Indeed! Sweeeeeeet! Well, I'll be sure to post pics on this forum and as it hapens, if there's Wi-Fi at the hotel. Maybe not of myself cause I might look like crap from traveling... lol..... Anyway... can't wait for it!! And that's cool at least you're playing. I'm too chicken. <__<''
Whenever I do actually play OTB chess then yes, that is definitely the case for me too. heh! (;
Hmmmm... put it on Wikipedia and make it famous! lol.
The scariest game I ever played.
