European Brunch May 21-25

So I had a thought on my 4-mile walk the other day ...

I need something to motivate me to get up and get going in the morning.  The answer: a G/60 game of chess.

But who plays chess at that unseemly hour?  The answer: Europeans.

So, each week, I'll post which days I can play a G/60 and people can sign up by posting a comment on that post.  I may not get much response, but it's worth a try.

If you're rated between 1500-1800 on FICS (standard rating), feel free to sign up for a game or two with me.

Monday: no games
Tuesday: open spot - G/60 at 02:45 FICS time
Wednesday: open spot - G/60 at 02:45 FICS time
Thursday: open spot - G/60 at 02:45 FICS time
Friday: no games

First come first serve - leave a comment to let me know which day you'd like to play.


  1. Great you play on ICC ? My rating there is just over 1500.

  2. Sorry, I don't play on ICC. Everyone can play on FICS, but not everyone can just as easily play on ICC.

  3. Well, I will see about joining up, but I guess it takes a few games to get a fixed rating, just like ICC ?

    Will let you know !

  4. Yeah, you start off w/ a provisional rating ... but if you're just playing me, I don't care if your rating is provisional or estimated or whatever. I just generally want to play people +/- 200 points from my rating.

    Let me know if you're up to it!
