POWER OUTAGE TEAM CORNER-WELLCOME

 
WELLCOME
 
lgrupido
SouthernComfort
Power
 
Let's try this place as a Cafe where pals meet and chat.
 
 
First of all let's remember our first round that should be completed on the 20th of February. We can start contacting our opponents and perhaps playing our games according our most convenient schedule...there is still time enough...I propose this place to talk about whatever we think about this tourney including, why not, posting games you like and of course our results.
 
Here is our first pairings....
 
 
Power Outage vs. Gee Dees

1907 power (W) vs. 2314 Gladiator (B)
1867 BladeRunner (B) vs. 1707 DualSpace (W)
1461 SouternComfort (W) vs. 1582 DOORMAN (B)
1445 lgrupido (B) vs. 1398 spud (W)

Let's find a suitable name for all as the first thing to ignite the team spirit, ok??!
 
Hey: SoCo proposes Pawn-o-Grabbers!...sounds cool to me...

It looks like power already lost to Gladiator. That was a tough matchup though. One thing I did like about power's game was that he stuck it out until the end. He got the worst of a rook/queen exchange and didn't resign. These are live games and anything can happen.
 
Remember, we need points at all costs. A draw is better than nothing.
 
Good game power! Stay focused there will be others.

Re: POWER OUTAGE TEAM CORNER-WELLCOME
Yes I must admit I had to be precise up to the end this g pawn was very dangerous.

Re: POWER OUTAGE TEAM CORNER-WELLCOME
I scheduled my match against Doorman @ 18:00 GMT on Sunday. We are going to play 30/15 instead of 30/30. I know power already played Glad. How is everyone else coming with scheduling their games?

Hi SoCo!
 
I sent Dual a mail to set ours since we are logged in many times at late night were we can concentrate better but have not received an answer yet.....I am hoping to set it soon....I am a bit confused about CST, GMT, HST...PCP...DVD and all those local times I hope I will not screw it because of it....

I'm familiar with Daylight Savings Time, Miller Time, Quitting Time and Play Time. PCP Time frightens me.
 
After I posted I saw on that GD Team board, that GD Spud, had posted he was going to play lgrupido tomorrow @ 11 GMT, 6am EST. I can't get up that GD early.
 
So we wish lgrupido good luck against his GD opponent.

Re: POWER OUTAGE TEAM CORNER-WELLCOME
I dare not play strong variations against gladiator so I played G4 Grob, I did a tempotap in the opening of the game thought I was ready and keep remi at the end of the game, men gladiator is a tough player, rounds to the he saw I find a way and turn him on, I have planned and play against jaumie Sunday evening at 2100 Norwegian time

The bottom half did their job. It's up to you BladeRunner.
 
Note to DOORMAN: You should have kept chatting. I had no clue I was under such awful time pressure!
 
We oddly disconnected after I played the knightfork check. I don't play a lot of live games, so I assume that would be the glich that gets talked about?

Great SoCo Yes, I will play Dual tonight 10 pm his time...9 pm mine.
 
I had been playing almost 30/15 all this days ( except 3 or 4 g2's)...just to get the tempo....I do not promise anything but hard thinking; Dual is a tough cookie!...
 
Great job guys!

Re: POWER OUTAGE TEAM CORNER-WELLCOME
Good Luck BladeRunner. I'll watch the game if I'm still up that late. Remember, a draw is as good as a win for us now, I think.
 
Hard thinking is all we are asking for, go get 'em!

Canada won a gold medal today and the country will be going crazy.Dualspace is probably dancing in the street with a glass of champagne in one hand, and the baby in the other.
