Hi Glenno!

You've been waiting since May 18th for an opponent, without a reply.

I'll play you if the game is Fischerandom. And I'll play almost daily.

Let me know if you are interested in my counter-challenge.

I will be interested in the game, though I have never the variant before.

To save me having to enter another thread, who (if any) wants to play a normal chess game against me on this thread?

Heya Glenno, I'm up for another game, now that the one against ElevatorEscapee is over ... I'll let you choose colours.

would either or both of you be interested in playing in the cc tournament I am trying to organise? I will start with only 4 players if that is all that is interested.

I'm afraid I am only interested in one game @ a time at the moment. Playing multiple games would take way too much of all-too-precious free time. But thanks for the offer anyway. Hopefully you will find some takers.

That's a very sly move. :clap: Bishop attacked multiple times, one of my defenders (the pawn) is in trouble because of the potential for a pin from the bishop going to b3. Can't use the f8 or e7 squares. Threat of back rank mate so I can't move the biship either. Had a look at Qf3, but that doesn't work after NxB and then Bishop ends up on b3. I'll try pinning your knight:
