I was just playing in our Monday Tournament but I am withdrawing as my pieces are not moving where I want them to and only to some squares which I really don't want to go to. This problem is only occurring in certain types of games and has not occurred in other online servers. I have made complaints to this server and I am sure they are trying to fix it. To be unable to compete due to technical problems with pieces is a drag. I detected a note of spite in Taxi 's thumbs up . to grievence.

I am writing heaps because semester hasn't started yet and I noticed some club players even shyer than I was dipped out early on and thought a few shared experiences might help them be less shy. I appreciate the tournaments as they are giving me more knowledge and loads of fun. Manus et Mentis.

Oh also, this aint the only game in town..so now I have played this KID variation followed by continuing from point KOTH to DovetailMate over fifty times. I recommend it. I think some Bullet players go so fast they don't notice. Doing a lot of beguiling moves. e2 pawn being defended is a big distraction, when they finally get to notice an approaching Dovetail Mate they get angry..discernible by their pieces behaving strangely..worth watching their magic tricks then.

I have been training for the KOTH without letting anyone know and this has led to surprising results in Bullet games on line.I do get the giggles. I have renamed it the KID variation. I leave a pawn one2 and create a corridor for the King in disguise as a pawn and his entourage to head for KOTH. I notice a lot of opponents have not hesitated to attack my back rank asap and focus on e2. This attack has been very aggressive. So I was surprised it continued and went on.to dovetailed mate.. WON
