By the way, based on the rankings ... looks like it's Spud and I against the Masters. :)

Re: French Winawer Poisoned Pawn Tables
Apparently I'm playing as White in almost all my games for this tourney ... I received 4 challenges this morning and Accepted them all, but for some reason Caissa made me white in all of them.
 
I'd believe it was possible for one, or even two of you to have made the mistake to assign me as white, but all four of you? Gotta be another glitch in Caissa.
 
Please re-challenge me, and ensure you check the "Challenge as White" radio button so I can play black in more than one of these games. :)

Re: French Winawer Poisoned Pawn Tables
Due to my carelessness, I had several color foulups, but they have been resolved and all my games are underway with at least 4 moves played.

Re: French Winawer Poisoned Pawn Tables
Clearly, your strategy of confusion worked brilliantly ... I just completely ignored the attack on my queen so I could castle kingside ...
 
ugh.

Re: French Winawer Poisoned Pawn Tables
I've caught up with the scores on the table, and I think I've figured out a problem ...
 
Spud and I are way out of our leagues ... :)
