  • I asked the admin of the Grünfeld Study Group. Let's see if and how he responds.

  • Yep, let's try the Grünfeld first.

  • @St3in: When being new to an opening it is often difficult to contribute in the opening phase, but as soon as it is over, we have a normal game in fron of us, where everyone can conribute equally.

  • should I try to put up an Anti-Grünfeld game first?

    by ccssii 28 hours ago

  • I try to contribute - but I am new to the opening -- so I am more a tag a long. I do not think I have ever played the English opening OTB

  • as grünfeld groups we have the "Grünfeld Study Group" and the "Grünfeld and the KID" group. Maybe the "Hypermodern Hangout" group as well.

  • totally, the quality is mostly ok, but the number of people contributing is small.

  • (BTW I wasn't talking about the quality of discussions but rather about the fact that our VC teams are a tad too small to handle more games because it's a tiny group of members who keeps them going.)

  • Ok.

    by benkku52 28 hours ago

  • we could start one game and then see how it goes and eventually start a third later.
