I thought you were still in VIC?

Oh well it was raining anyway so we went to the driving range instead. You're welcome to come when we play next week though!

How about, no.

I like exchange, it's mine and K's game, so kindly shutup.

He would also say: all Yugoslavs and Philipinos are cheats - and get barred from the comp for his troubles. I recently met a Slav player and told him of this and his response: of course we cheat, another Slav in Sydney also admitted throwing games between themselves. The player who Lloyd was referring to .

I was thinking of that before, but I was waiting until we had reached a 'position' a little deeper into the game.

Exchange Variation doesn't have to be boring just because it's evaluated as level. It can be quite violent, especially with the IQP positions following an early c4 or ...c5, or the positions where opposite side castling occurs.

JGB
09-12-2004, 04:18 AM
Agreed, anyway someone make a move! This is no private game, the only rule is you can only play one colour and stick with Black or White, first person in makes the move.

...maybe everyone already likes White?! ;)

Its open, rule is you can only play with one colour. First in best dressed. More fun. If it was a closed game we could do it through pm's.
Probably should keep to one game at a time seeing as you already have one. ;)
