T28 lost. Teams for revenge are ready

No good comments I have about T28.

So teams for T29 are:

DeLaMaza U1600

1.RomaLavrn (captain) 1797
2.jjgsmm (capt.assistant,6 games) 1631 or phorku (for substitution) 1571
3.TedR (6 games) 1560 (not fixed!)
4.MegaSkins (6 games) 1412

Team rating is just 1600!

DeLaMaza U1800

1.SerhiyFranchuk 2001 (not fixed!)
2.JavaManIssa 1799
3.RomaLavrn (capt.) 1797
4.phorku (6 games) 1572 (capt.assistant)
5.TedR (if needed) 1560 (not fixed!)

DeLaMaza/Pomaranch U2000

1.Gracey 2065
2.SerhiyFranchuk 2001 (not fixed!)
3.RagEUa 1899 (our new player, he played very well in 90 30 trn)
4.RomaLavrn 1797

5.JavaManIssa (when needed) 1799

Team rating is 1941. Why so low? That is because of a new rule. Now fixed ratings for T29 are average among collected during T28. So my real rating now is 1850, but I was away during T28 and then my rating was 179x. So avarage became 1797. That made me available for U1600 team! As for U2000 I can say that my and RagEua real ratings are higher, and expert team rating I think is 1960. So we have chances.

So 3 teams consists of 9 players that during 6 rounds should play next ammount of games (if they can, but there is a substitution in most cases):

1.Gracey 6 games
2.SerhiyFranchuk 12 games
3.RagEUa 6 games
4.RomaLavrn 18 games
5.JavaManIssa at least 6 games
6.jjgsmm 6 games
7.phorku 6 games
8.TedR at least 6 games (MUST! He has no substitution)
9.MegaSkins 6 games (MUST! He has no substitution)


Round 6 is coming

In last round DeLaMaza U1600 is fighting for the place in final. But other teams U1800 and U2000 lost chances again. I think we are to make the best U1800 team for next season. But I have no ideas about U2000 team. We have no high-rated players among us yet.
So its just time to put together team for the next season. Who wants to join just contact RomaLavrn or LLIAMAH on Fics or post comment on this blog.


DeLaMaza U1600 is champion again. Lets form teams for next tourney

Currently DeLaMaza teams for next season are:

DeLaMaza U2000

1. Bahus
2. RomaLavrn (captain)
3. JavaManIssa
4. JoeytheBudgie
5. LLIAMAH (capt. assist.)

DeLaMaza U1800

1. Bahus
2. JavaManIssa
3. Nezha
4. LLIAMAH (captain)
5. jjgsmm

DeLaMaza U1600

1. generalkaia
2. jjgsmm
3. phorku

We need two players for U1600 and welcome strong players for U2000. If someone wants to join contact me.


Is it computer assistance?

Just after 6th round U1800 Pomaranch team was a leader of division and had a place in final. But teamchess stuff accused 1st board cerebero in using computer assistance. And overturned all his games.

They said "In Cerebero’s 6 games that we looked at, he had zero blunders.
He played 87 % number 1 move each time. I can even give you the
engine and version that was being used but I would rather not."

I cant believe it. There are no motivation to be winner by cheating. And looking through games I cant find something suspicious. But perheps I am not right.

Is someone reading that blog can judge if game is played with help of engine?

There are 9 games which Cerebero played in 45 45 tourney.
Guess in which 6 games he used computer assistance?

DeLaMaza U1600 team in Final!

The only good thing in 45 45 tourney is that in U1600 section DeLaMaza team goes to final round.

And I am very upset about DeLaMaza U2000. We had the most powerful team, our first board TripleCheck won 5 of 5 games, second board Gracey get 5.5/6 points. We could not loose! But we have won no rounds. 6 draws. Second place. The most awful thing was that I was absent during 4 rounds. I was 600km away from home working, measuring fields. So it was the end of DeLaMaza U2000. We will not have TripleCheck and Gracey in next tourney. Our chances for victory dissapeared.

Something unusually bad happened with DeLaMaza U1800 team. At the start it was team with strongest 3rd and 4th boards among all teams. But the result is very sad.

The only my hope is that in U1600 section DeLaMaza will win in Final round. If not then all 3 DeLaMaza teams are disgrace for theirs name. So, Knights, you are to win!


3rd Round

While we are waiting for the last game of 2nd round the only game of 3rd round is to be played.

white black

PawnSensei vs bahus

Then FINAL left


Knight's tourney 2nd round

JavaManIssa late-joined tourney

Pairings for the 2st round (from May 30 to June 7)

white black

1. javamanissa vs bahus 0:1
2. bahus vs javamanissa 1:0 (bahus is in round 3)

3. Xeones vs Nezha
4. Nezha vs Xeones 1:0

PawnSensei has a BYE in this round

So you have two 45 45 games, with different colours. If after two games result is draw you are to plaY 20 5 tie-break until first win.

It is reccomended that games should be played in different days. Tie-break starts after second game.

Contact your opponent using your blogs and schedule time when game starts.

Use FICS server time for scheduling.

Propose 3 times when you can play, your opponent may accept one of them or propose 3 times when he can play and so on.

Good luck and Good Games!



Knight's tourney is open!

Time Control: 45 45 (as bahus proposed to train our new teammates)
Knockout system, 3 rounds

Pairings for the 1st round (from May 24 to June 1)

white black

1. psionic vs bahus 0:1 (bahus is in 2nd round)
2. Xeones vs RomaLavrn 1:0 (Xeones advanced to 2nd round)
3. Nezha vs CelticDeath 1:0 (Nezha in 2nd round)
4. knightwizzy vs PawnSensei 0:1 (PS is in 2nd round)

As for game of psionic: last move may be Qe6. Then plan may be based that after exchanges of rooks and queens black bishop cant control h1. So if try to exchange black g-pawn for both white - it is theoretical draw.
2. Remember about theoretical draw positions.

Contact your opponent using your(or that) blogs and schedule time when game starts.

Use FICS server time for scheduling.

Propose 3 times when you can play, your opponent may accept one of them or propose 3 times when he can play and so on.

In agreed time be online and start 45 45 rated game with colours as in pairings

If your opponent is off-line in proper time wait 30 minutes "grace period". If during 30 minutes he "no show" - he lost.

If something is not mentioned rules of 45 45 teamchess.org will be applied.

Good luck and Good Games!

UPDATE: in case of draw 20 5 tie-break until first win.


Decline MFO's challenge

I propose to decline MFO's challenge. Our method of development has nothing to do with a correspondence game. We will fight MFO "face to face" in teamchess 45 45 tourney, so we dont need to make pleasure to our strongest opponents. Most of Knights are busy with circles and correspondence game is a waste of time.

Instead I propose to Knights to make a Knight Tourney Knockout system. Why Knockout - where you read about Knight tourneys on Swiss system in the past? And not to waste your time is a purpose too. 3 or 4 rounds. We are to finish before 14 June when 45 45 War starts.

If I'll get from you some positive comments I'll start to manage that tourney.

Propose time control please.


Last Call to Strongest Knights

DeLaMaza U2000 team need The Strongest Knight for second board. Who pretend to be the strongest among us? Or that place will be used by non-knight "legioner"?
FICS rating should be 1900-2100. (U2000 means that avarage rating of team players is under 2000). One game 45 45 per week, sheduled in appropriate for you and opponent time. If such time cant be found the game have to be played during next week (14 days for game to be played). If you are very busy any week CelticDeath will play instead of you. Your opponents are 1900-2050 rated players.
Our first board is TripleCheck(2150) who is MDLM follower, who got his 400 points, from his notes I've noticed about "400 points for 400 days". If no knights will answer this call I afraid we will loose our 1st board and DeLaMaza U2000 too. Dont let it happen.
3rd and 4th boards are bahus and me.

If you want to join but have no FICS account or have no 20 games played contact me I'll advise you what to do.

Nezha, psionic, xeonis and knightwizzy are to UPDATE their profiles again (Click yes on T27 and on "I have read and accept the Team 4545 League procedures", they deleted that when upgraded website for T27 tournament)


About myself
