Hello, all

Soon, I am planning to start a new MOT. Each player needs
to play 2 games against each other in this tournament. I
wish to state that the time limit will be a typical one
for corres games, you don't have to change it.To challenge
someone, go to "corr games", one of the tabs of the main
screen. Select "challenges". Select "show advanced
options". You can issue a challenge by typing the name of
your opponent.

The speed remains the same.Challenge your opponent with white and ask him to challenge you
once with black. On the "comment" tab,you can state the opening.
 

In that case,the opening will be the gorgeous Nimzo Indian. The games you
will play will start with the following moves.

1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Bb4 4 Qc2.
This is one of the most interesting and played opening of all time. The only one to have been played by every single world champion, I believe.

I hope to get as many registrations as possible before the 22nd of january 2400 GMT

I'm in no particular hurry. I'll wait a few weeks if we can get a few more players.

I'm back Jan. 21. I'm going to be out west and I just use a flip phone. You guessed it. I am a dinosaur.

In spite of my poor showing in the Morra Gambit event, I am ready to go again, although I always play 4. e3 against the Nimzo.

Re: Next MOT the NImzo Indian with 4 Qc2
Really? I worked for weeks to get people to join this MOT. Now you want to tell me that one of my recruits is not welcome.
 
YOU CAN REMOVE ME AS WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
I WILL NOT BE TOLD WHO I CAN PLAY AGAINST AND WHO IS NOT ELIGIBLE. I WILL FINISH MY EXISTING GAMES WITH YOU. DO NOT CONTACT ME, DO NOT CHALLENGE ME. DO NOT TRY TO CHAT WITH ME
 
Sorry Gladiator, your behavior is atrocious. I WILL NOT BE PART OF IT.

He is not your recruit, and actually I will include him in the MOT tomorrow. If you want to finish your games with me no problem. Hope we will be friends again one day.

Well that contradicts what you told me in the chat line on our game.
 
As far as recruit goes, that's iffy at best. Had I not kept reminding him tomorrow would have passed without him joining. Believe what you want, I don't really care. I'm out, in spite of your flip flop.
 
Friends? Don't delude yourself. We were never friends, never met, shared a beer or glass of wine or had anything other than a common interest in the game of kings. We are only acquainted.
 
I will play out our games without comment until conclusion. When they are done, so are we. If we show up in the same tourney, so be it, I wont avoid a game, but neither will I accept a challenge from you.

Re: Next MOT the NImzo Indian with 4 Qc2
This is the only board that elp doesn't use, which is a good thing. Let's start over again. I have three games going with dawntrader and he hasn't moved lately. I'm sure he will play, we just don't know when. Lack of players is the problem I'm not a recruiter but here goes. We have a wizard, an elf and dwarf, now we need some hobbits.
