Yes I have started games in matches versus Spain, Portugal and Finland. The games against spain are well under way.

Obviously I cannot discuss the games but they look interesting. You should be able to watch games several moves in arrears.

There are lots of games on the server. This site is well worth visiting.

Hint - look and see if there are any fixed openings tournaments featuring variations that you play over the board. You may find some ripper improvements

david, your Aus OTB rating has a long way to go to catch up with your international corres one! Congrats on the draw.

you are so right. I am the classic correspondence specialist who is far better at Correspondence Chess than I am over the board. I know the reasons for this but they would be hard to fix. Fortunately I love playing correspondence chess.

I won another game yesterday. My opponent played on until he was checkmated. When I analysed the game afterwards deep rybka found in one position a move that mated in nine wheras the move that I played mated in twelve. It is not a very good game so I will have to consider whether to post it.
