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)
