If I may make an observation, these more experienced match players may be taking advantages that we are missing, and the big one of these is perhaps the clock. We have three days at our disposal, not meaning that we should be dragging games out to Christmas, but neither should we be averaging five minutes a reply. I saw this in my own games, my opponent now has taken hours more than me. I'm (so far) holding my own but I'm thinking how much better could I be if I'd taken longer, analysed more and when I'd decided, rather than post immediately go and chat on a forum for a while. Then check over everything again before posting.

Make him wait, waste his time, let him get frustrated. Use the clock.

Absolutely. Think of your move and then give yourself a bit of time to forget it, look at it again later, and suddenly see the much better move you didn't notice before!

What’s going on in your games Filthy Sanchez? Looks like the other bloke hasn’t registered a move yet the games are still going?

I believe his opponent has activated the ‘vacation’ mode, which allows him to be away for 3 months before making his first move.

Side note: anyone fancy a game with Deaneus! ? A bit unfortunate he got 2 default wins.

Same here - I'm playing grumbleguts, did a stupid move and gave him my Q, will have to play again and be more careful

Just go start the game but I wan't to concentrate on my club game first (won one, one still in play).

I think it would be cool to post a screenshot of the board, detail the plan and see if anyone sees a weakness? It’s a team thing right?

Not allowed mate...there is something called Vote Chess (where we go for the majority move) where I imagine we can discuss for next time.

OK finished 1-1. I'm furious with myself for blundering a rook away in game 2, I really should have won that as well.

Good luck to everyone for the weekend! The match is finely balanced at 15-14.

My games are still fairly balanced. Probably a touch better position in one, but a little crowded in the other...

Just had a look at his opponent and he was online 2 days ago. Think he’s taking the piss a bit.

First game has ended in a draw with two kings and an un-promotable pawn. No points for having one more piece on the board unfortunately 🙂

I think they can now force a draw in the second game with perpetual check. We'll see if that's how they'll play it...
