Hello everyone!

  

I'm Leon, as you definitely would never have guessed from my username. I'm 15 and I've been playing chess since I was 3. I'm normally pretty active on chess.com, but I've been a bit busy lately.

I've started blogging again, so if you want to check that out (and maybe follow tongue.png), here it is:

  

My Blog

 

Also, I'm a HUGE fan of Stranger Things, so if you want to talk about it, message me! happy.png

 

Now, why does everything have to be about me? Let's talk about you!
Whether you like it or not, I know a lot about you. For example, below are ten things I know about you:

1. You are alive.

2. You can breathe.

4. You didn't notice that I skipped number 3.

5. You just went back to check.

6. You are smiling at how you keep on falling for this...

7. You just read this sentence.

8. And you just missed that I skipped number 7!

9. You just went back to check only to realize I didn't skip anything! wink.png

10. You are done!

11. Actually wait let's extend this...

12. I also know that when you bite your tongue by accident, it hurts, but when you bite it on purpose, it doesn't hurt.

13. I also know you just bit yourself to check wink.png

14.

I captained Chess Is A Fair Game Unless You Use The RAR in the Not-So Pro Blitz Chess League (NSPBCL) Season 2. We lost in the first round of playoffs to the team that ended up taking first place...dang it, unlucky pairings.
I'd post the team lineup...except the problem is, since it was my first time taking the league seriously, I had a couple of problems and our lineup changed many, many times. Big thanks to everyone who played for us!
Special thanks though to @Yourinsuil1991 and @KoalaKnightMI for being with us for the whole season, as well as @Robert_Fedler and @Squirrel16 for being with us for a big part of the season.

My second attempt at (serious) captaining was in Season 8 of the Not-So PRO Chess League (NSPCL).
Our team, This Match Has Been Cancelled, was a great team. We took first place in the regular season...only to lose in the quarter finals to the team which (you guessed it) ended up taking first.
Come on why is it always us with the unlucky pairings...

Unlike Chess Is A Fair Game Unless You Use The RAR (or for short, CIA), this team was the same, every single week.
And we did a great job. And we'll be back!
Huge thanks to our board 1, @chessrunner49, our board 2, @SchlappyC, our board 3, @JamesAgadir, our board 4, @LHCAndrewB, and @ShaoniHiya, our manager. (I was board 5)

Now, the next season in the NSPBCL was pretty eventful. Me and my co-captain, @KoalaKnightMI, decided to make 2 teams this season. One of the teams didn't make it very far, but the other one made it pretty far. Here are the lineups:

The RAR Strikes Back:

Board 1: @Yourinsuil1991 (2332)
Board 2: @CorporateChessguy (1929)
Board 3: @robert_fedler (1960)
Board 4: @Perseo1408 (1937)
Board 5: @KoalaKnightMI (1388)
Board 6: @majorpanda (600)

Dragon Fighters:

Board 1: @Joseph_Truelson 2412
Board 2: @Little_Smurf 2193
Board 3: @KING_ASSASSIN_0 2018
Board 4: @Leon_Likes_Chess 1720
Board 5: @GoldenDegree / @KingSideInvasion 1174
Board 6: @TibetanWolff 658

We lost. sad.png The RAR Strikes Back just had quite a few small problems along the way, leading to its downfall. Dragon Fighters, on the other hand, could've gotten first or second...but we were knocked out of the playoffs by a team that cheated...

Next comes NSPCL Season 9, we have the same team, This Match Has Been Cancelled.

Our lineup is:

This Match Has Been Cancelled:

@chessrunner49

@SchlappyC

@JamesAgadir

@Leon_Likes_Chess

@Badr09

Unfortunately, we lost. It was a really tough season for us. But it was a fun ride! happy.png

Recently, I also played in the Not-So Pro Variant Chess League...and our team won!!

Here's the lineup along with the trophy!

  1st
Variant Vigilantes
@JosTim
@sciencechimp2004
@Leon_Likes_Chess
@Brudo_the_Chess_King
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

Now, my final attempt at the crown was the Not-So Pro Blitz Chess League Season 4.

We were a very strong team from the start, but over the course of the season we had many obstacles we needed to overcome. They all weakened us, but none could destroy us.

We won. We became the champions.

The Bacteriophages FTW!

I will post the lineup with the trophy as soon as it is created by the league, which will hopefully be soon.

Enough with the leagues, I think.

Anyways, I'm a really aggressive player...which means I'll most likely blunder half my pieces away by move 10.

Oh, and how could I forget, RAR!!
What is this "RAR" I speak of? Well it's basically this awesome club you should really check out...here's the link: https://www.chess.com/club/classic-rar
Short story long, RAR is...awesome!

My chess personality style is Prodigy.

Which I think is pretty accurate...except for the "calm" part. I'm not calm. Not when I win, and especially not when I lose...xD

By the way, I'd appreciate it if you don't invite me to any clubs. I'm not joining new clubs.

 

Oh...and how could I forget? My favorite inspirational quote!

"What is the best thing to do when you have a hole in a boat and water is leaking inside? Make another hole to drain the water!"

Anyways, thanks for reading, and have an awesome day!
