Official Thread: Evans Gambit MOT
Currently, we've got 15 (again) players. I will keep the roll open until Sept 28th, or until we reach 20, after which I will randomly split the group into two smaller pools. The MOT officially begins on Oct 1.
 
Each player shall play each opponent within his or her pool twice, once as black and once as white. To prevent overlap, I propose that each player challenge his or her opponents as white, putting the onus on the challenger to assume the white pieces for each of his or her pair of games. Ex. Grim offers a challenge to Blue, w/ Grim playing white. Blue then returns the challenge, with himself as white. Now Blue and Grim have two games of the Evans Gambit, each playing both black and white.
 
The opening moves are:
1. e4 e5
2. Nf3 Nc6
3. Bc4 Bc5
4. b4
 
And the current list of opponents are:
Grim
jaume1959
SouthernComfort
Kingsfull
Zilon
Blue
kastelka
Vindicus
Bartvinnik
TrencherKnight
WizardNo1
Gladiator
DOORMAN

Raptor = RAPTOR ... corrected, though I hardly think Caissa's challenge system will be concerned with capitols ... the login process is only case sensitive in the password, not the username.

I didn't make it clear and for that I apologize. I didn't enter the MOT. Case sensitive or spelling or style is not in issue. I just wonder how I came to be entered.

Re: Official Evans Gambit MOT
Let DOORMAN in, by all means. We can wait until October 4 to send
our challenges, and he can send his on October 4. A few extra days
won't make any difference in a correspondence event.

To complete the example, Blue wins both games. :)

Re: Official Evans Gambit MOT
Ok count me in. It's funny because we played a MOT based on the Evans Gambit a few years ago on the old site and I think I was the TD.

Sorry, RAPTOR, my mistake. You posted a link in the other thread, and I was just grabbing names from those posts. I'll correct.
 
Doorman, no worries! You're in!

Re: Official Thread: Evans Gambit MOT
Sadly, pennine has to withdraw his name. We are now back to 14 players. 24 hours more until the registration closes, and then I'll randomize the player pools.
