All the games in this thematic team match will feature the French Defense. The time control is 1 move every 5 days, and the match is open to players at all rating levels.
you have got a challenge for a match <1800 ;-)
that's fine knetfan
I too value participation over ratings anyway....rating is just a number.perhaps we can arrange something under 1800 or so :)
I would like to extend an apology to the French Defense group. One of my colleague administrators removed several boards before locking this match in an attempt to balance the ratings and actually give Kool Katz a small advantage. This action took place without my knowledge and consent.
My personal philosophy is to promote participation first and balanced ratings second. I know this is the first team match for the French Defense group, and I am sure several of your group's members were excited to play in this match. I am very sorry, and I hope that I can arrange another match in the near future to allow some of the other players to play (perhaps a match for players rated < 1800?).
I'll lock this in about 24 hours if no one else joins
no problem...good luck all :)
Nicely done, Knetfan.... I'll be the first one out. My game is suffering lately, as I am swamped with other chess games.
The ratings are balancing out nicely! It looks like this will be a nice match.
Let's allow some time, Cory, to see how the registration goes for both teams. If necessary, I might also withdraw myself to balance the ratings.
Thank you for accepting our challenge, French Defense.
*Clink* - - To both sides, have some fun games and good luck.
Knetfan, do you need me in this match? I wouldn't mind coming off if it were to make it fairer. Thanks.
