in any case, this is the site, im greece666 there, add me if you make an account
just for demo purposes an invite would look like that (click on the play with a friend button)
Thanks for this link; I'll check this site out. Haven't played in years, but I captained my high school chess team during my juinor and senior years. We were really good during the latter campaign, going to the county finals. I won my game on 2nd board, but in the last game on 3rd board, needing only a draw, our player left his rook en prise...!
Have you ever played Go?
I tried Go but I had trouble understanding what was happening. If someone can guide me through a bit, I can give it another try. Another game I like is Stratego - I know the Dutch like it, don't know about the US, although iirc there are some masters from there.
You obv are a much better player than me lol, I was playing for our second team that competed in less important events- and nowhere close the second table. And yes, it sucks to lose games this way. In Greece we have a special word for what your teammate did, it could be translated as "sacriprise"
I love chess stories, and have lots of them, involving drunk Belarusians, gambling Greeks and more
And sure lichess is a p good site. ICC used to be the big chess site, but once lichess appeared it became completely dominant. Talking of sites https://www.reddit.com/r/chess/ is p good, IMO it is better moderated than most reddit subs. And for the laughs you can try https://www.reddit.com/r/AnarchyChess/ eg
@Celtics4ever sure let me know when you can. Will be a pleasure.
In any case, I ll be here on Sunday and post a link on time.
If you can play chess at a reasonable level, you can play Go, but they are quite different. In the latter, you must see what is immediately before you, but also the entire board, and everything on it. If you're good at it, which I am not, every move is not only a single move, but also like a series of moves to be sensed on every imaginable level, like a game of 3-D chess.
I also grew up playing Stratego, and I've never lost a game in my life. It's all in how you set your pieces up to begin the game, IMHO.
'Sacriprise?' That's outstanding! After the lethal error, he resigned, and I was able to resist the temptation to resort to violence, and as captain of the team, I put an arm around him and comforted him, but it wasn't easy.
Thanks again for the links, I'll check them out this weekend.
