Postby IAHM-COL » Sat Apr 01, 2017 8:55 am

Hi ALL, and more specifically competitors

Keep that in mind and your schedules marked. And be ready...

Review that you are able to connect to FICS, and issue as well and accept games online.
This post may give you some help, feel free to ask questions there.

*************

The White player is expected to issue the match challenge indicated in the Game pairings below.
(The Black player can alternatively do it, by changing the command correctly --> w (or White) becomes b (or Black), to indicate that you intend playing Black instead).
Note that all the following is a must: 1) game must be played at the specified time by the specified people. 2) Player must play assigned color pieces, 3) games must be rated, 4) Time control must be as indicated.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

First Round Completed :D

The games can be viewed here

The file for the blitz games is added

SM disclaimed he could not play the Standard Tour for schedule reasons. JWocky takes the leave point. Keith did not show up. I am willing to give him a chance to contact me and schedule a time to complete the game before I assign me the leave point :D
(That's why there's no database for the Standard)

18... Nxe8(!?) {I suggests, 18...Rxe8!, skewering the Qe7. Nothing can protect now Rxe7 on the following move, and making an about even field,
also if 19. Qxe8+, then 19... Nxe8, making also an even field}
