Get on board for the Bullfrog
Hi all
 
I recently read that, according to the Mayan calendar, the world was going to end in 2012. I was a bit concerned until I remembered that I wasn’t Mayan so It probably wouldn’t affect me.
 
According to the lesser known Spudayan calender, 2012 is the Year of the Bullfrog and to pay proper tribute to that noble beast, I will be TD’ing the next Tournament which will have as its opening the well-known “Bullfrog Gambit” of 1.d4 Nf6 2.g4;
 
Nominations open immediately by replying to this post and the Tournament will commence on 1 February.
 
Usual Correspondence rules: play everyone twice, once as black and once as white with the standard Challenge format.
 
Cheers

Re: Get on board for the Bullfrog

To enter this event, if you're not named Kermit
Do you have to have, a special permit?
And, in lost positions, is, "Resign" what is spoke
Or is it proper just to simply Croak?
 
But count me in this Spudayan feud
As I am in an amphibious mood
Now I hope all my games I can rig
So as to avoid the Gig!

I'm in for sure.
 
p.s I'm shorting the earth and buying catastrophe bonds. Of course no-one will be around to pay me if it pays off....

Re: Get on board for the Bullfrog
Lately I've been playing like a dog
So the perfect opening for me is a bullfrog
