    Odds by rating difference: 100: c-pawn, 200 b+c pawns, 300 QN 400 KN+c-pawn 500 QR 600 KB+QN 700 KB+QN+c-pawn 800 QR+KN 900 queen

    Club is closed now, reopening Jan 15th. Kam is exploring a possible Kingston event in the holidays so I'll post details when known.

    Any games from this? Was c-pawn too much for a relatively narrow 100-point difference, at least among the stronger players?

    No games recorded, it was blitz. (Some of the games were very interesting.) The c-pawn givers scored +3=1-7, +1=1-4 with white and +2-3 with black, so in this case the c-pawn seemed to be a fairly severe handicap for 100 points. But not everyone agreed. For instance one player said that if you are a natural d-pawn player then not having the c-pawn freed you to play a quick Nc3 and e4. Also in my game as Aidan (I was white minus c-pawn) I blundered a second pawn for rather dubious compensation after about seven or eight moves in. (I nearly won later but a seemingly crushing exchange sac I came up with in desperation looked enough then wasn't.)

    I believe club is reopening tonight, but I'm unlikely to be there tonight because of work commitments.
