    Cw Chess Championship

    Is anyone interested in starting some cw chess competitions, if so let me know, I'll see if we can get ourselves a tournament or maybe even a league. I'll look forward to it.

    I used to play, but I wasn't particularly good. Had a couple of wins against rated players (who played tournaments, but I just played them at uni) by sheer luck, but then went 0-10 and downhill from there. I haven't played in five years, but would definitely be interested.

    Think I'll wait for a few days and if we get less than 8 I'll go for a mini league if we get more, I'll try for a tournament.

    I'll play, the residences' chess league is starting on Thursday so I might as well give this one a go too and get some practice in.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
