Th3 DoG FaTh3R timed out Chipmunk after a hard fought game.
After a long stint on the grind and crashing hard right after it was frustrating to wake up to see that this game had timed out.
For the record, my next move would have been..
41. b8=Q+ Bxb8
42. Qxe4
My instincts tell me this would have ended in a draw anyways but I would’ve liked to see how the final sequence would have played out. Congrats to the top three.

NEW LADDER

Congratulations to everyone who took part in a great competition, especially the medal winners, but I think everyone got something out of it, and there were a few personal (but friendly) rivalries that built up, which was good.

Hopefully we will have the new ladder up and running shortly.

All active members of the old ladder* will be members of the new one automatically so if you do not wish to participate this time around please let me know and I can remove you.

Likewise if you wish to join in.

The format will be basically the same as before. Any suggestions as to amendments will be gratefully received.

*active = played a game after 1st June

You went on holiday during our game, you had 3 days to move and paused it for months, how is that fair, you should have forfeited, ridiculous!👍
I'm sorry, unfortunately I was suddenly snatched away and was unable to access chess.com. I did apologise on the ladder thread on this forum and say I was resigning the game. It seems you missed the relevant post, perhaps I addressed it incorrectly - I was under some stress at the time.

I did not deliberately pause the game, I don't know how that happened. I presumed that I would have just been timed out and you would get the massage.

Anyway, please accept my apologies.

I’m sorry mate, I like to jump at shadows and should have seen what could have unmitigated circumstances for your pausing of the game.
It was setup to be a good one too!
When you have the time, I’d love to go into battle again!
And again? I apologise for not swing your post, I hope everything is ok at your end!👍

I'll start a new game then, I'm feeling fit and ready to go.
