Jono rocketing up the rankings with a great streak. Down to the last three. cordongole vs Jono with me left in a group alone!
T5 - fast and furious, it went fast, and i'm furious.
Oops, timed out against elGreeno in T5.
Too fast, too furious
Yeah saw that sorry mate, was a balanced game ready to explode..
happy to agree a draw with @rhb in our first game in T5. think was on top by a little but then in trouble. glad to see the back of that game. good luck in the next one dude
Ta. Draw seemed reasonable to me... your Queen was well placed to threaten demolition at any point despite my material & position advantage.
I'm pretty sure normal service will resume in our rematch.
Final pair of the never ending tourney started. Good luck jono

Then wait for the new tournament. I currently make them (but anyone can!) announce it here, and leave a week or so to sign up. We currently have two on the go so I predict a new one in a few weeks time.
You too! Fun games so far!
This is like the lufguss FA cup. Good luck both
Big upset happening soon in group 1 🥵
I’m pinching myself
I’m kicking myself
Congrats to Jono for winning the LFGSS #3 the never ending tourney. Firm trouncing in the final.
Started the tournament with an ELO in the 800s and now boasts 1385!
boy got game for sure - well done Jono
Me and @rhb nearly finished our game in LFGSS #5 so next round of that should start soon as think all other groups complete. I don't think it matters which one of us wins as we both go through.
Yes you do.
I'm up for a game against any of the other #5 losers
sorry dude. shame you couldn't build on the win against me. but @rhb is a hard nut to crack for sure.
Thanks! I only really play rapid and puzzles. You'll also soon realise I only have one opening strategy as white... it's very aggressive and difficult to counter, but then it falls down spectacularly.
read this as ‘Cheese’ and got excited. Oh well.

Cracks are appearing rapidly though.
As soon as I saw round 2 has started I was instantly reminded of my plans to look at opening theory before it did. Looking things up after a game has started feels like (probably is) cheating, and then later I completely forget again. Does anyone have a tip for some resources on this? I don’t really get on with videos, I think a book might be a bit much but something written would be great.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
