Any chance of making the tournaments a bit later like 7pm?? I’d love to play them but with kids it’s just impossible to do it before they go to bed.

Understand that no time is going to suit everyone though.

Got out of jail with a draw against RalfM. Was down 2 rooks to 1 at the end.

Interested that the report said you had a missed win RalfM. Couldn’t see where that was.
When I had you right in the corner I should have moved the king to the 1st rank. Really messed up there, but has been such a long time since I did rook end games like that. Exciting game! Thanks 🙂

I just had a look myself. Very good game to both of you :)

Thanks.

I think my biggest mistake was to keep playing when I was getting too tired. We were in a nice flow and I think I just wanted to get it done, but when I was unsure I should have stepped away from the board. All part of the game though 🙂

Thanks again Chipmunk for organising the comp, to everyone who I got to play against in it for the games, and to the others, I hope we get to have a game in the next comp.

I will allow these games to be completed before revealing the final ladder, the players are not allowed outside help so please do not discuss the positions on this thread. I will not be imposing a time limit on completion.

Thank you for the warm wishes this week, they've been very kind. Have a good Sunday!

Chipmunk slapped me around yesterday like an extra in a Joe Pesci movie

I wasn't doing too badly then i made a few errors and he buried me in an unmarked grave in the desert



I'll take a game if anyone's interested

I'll sort out the thread admin later and then we'll close the thread and launch the next ladder at the beginning of next month.

Well played, everyone!​
