Standing Game Seek

I'm looking for anyone rated 1600-1800 on FICS to play me between the hours of 18:00 and 20:00 (FICS server time) any day of the week.

I'd prefer someone who would be willing to do a post mortem analysis either after the game or on a later day.

Additionally ...

I don't know if someone has already started this or not since I've not seen it, but I wonder what interest there is out there for starting an on-line chess club at FICS ... in other words there'd be a day(s) set aside each week (just Tuesdays or just Thursdays or both) between the hours of 16:00-20:00 (FICS time) where anyone can stop by and play a game (focus would be on standard games ... 60 5 or 45 45 or similiar). If this already is set up, let me know. If not, would you be interested in something like this?

It only takes two to start a club, so we're already half-way there!


  1. Love the idea of the online chess club... but the times might not work for everyone. FICS time is EST, right? That's a bit early for people on PST that have a regular day job...

  2. Actually FICS time is Pacific time, so 16:00-20:00 would be 4pm to 8pm on the West Coast. That would be 7pm to 11pm on the East Coast and 6pm to 10pm Central time (where I live).

  3. oh cool! I guess I was thinking ICC time, which I think is EST.

    Well, in that case, I'd definitely join your online chess club :)

    I'm chezzznut on FICS, but I haven't logged on in quite a while so I'm not even sure what my rating is...
