Re: Win for Slevesque
For some reason, I don't know how to send messages anywhere on that site.

Anyhow, That was a great game, I got a chance to take the lead when I swapped my knight for your rook in the beginning, from that point on it was just making sure I don't make any mistakes.

At the bottom of the game board, there is a link that says "Add Comment". Click that and you can chat with your playing partner.

So Hyro and Slevesque have stormed to an early lead, by dint of the cunning strategy of finishing their games really quickly. Clever.

ABE: Okay, I have no idea why this has wound up smaller than the last one. I blame photobucket.

I'm playing horribly. This sucks. I've never been that great at chess. Good thing there's no money on the line.

Re: Win for Hyro
Hey Hyro could you perhaps edit into post #1 a points table for all the players? We each play only 16 games, right?

Caffeine is handling the points table and, yes, 16 games.

It's hard for me to discern what "horrible" means when describing my own performance, when I have little to compare to. It's all relative, I guess. Play on!

Re: Win for Hotjer
I'm busy this weekend, but I'll put up a score update Sunday or Monday. I'm predicting a win before too long for omnivorous, lest I manage to make up for some early errors.

Okay, here we go. CosmicChimp's running away with it so far with four straight wins, but it's early days yet and most of us are still yet to lose a game.

I've realised that this is apparently the maximum image size photobucket allows you to put up for free nowadays. If someone can recommend me a better free image hosting site, I'll put this table up in full size so you can read it properly.
