She took a breather and let the knight have some fun, she'll be back soon... ;)
very confused
when i asked neither your queen nor knights were on the board (they weren't in my captured pile either)
i would not have captured your knight if your queen was still on board
i guess it doesn't super matter since you were well ahead anyway, but it's weird

Bronson and I were talking about whether it would be possible to have a tournament.

We would see who's in, then set up a bracket. Games would be played on daily setting (no rating) with 3-days to move. If you win your game, you just have to wait until the other game in the bracket is over.

This would take a while but it would allow everyone to be able to play without time pressure.
It would also be fun to do a rapid tournament but I guess it would be too hard to get everyone to agree on a time. I could go for a Saturday morning.

My bad, I misunderstood your initial post...seems like a weird tech glitch. Are you playing on a computer or your phone?

honestly i wondered if you were trying to make the game more competitive and i was about to feel a certain way about that

Yea. I don’t want any crutches. But even more, I don’t want to play any invisible queens. Have enough time tracking what she is doing when she is waiving at me.

I’ll play in a tournament if y’all insist on having pin cushions

Alright you jackanapes, I'm in town for a bit. Anyone have an outdoor area wherein they post a bit of chess?
oddly enough, other than the guy that you pay to play in the quarter, I have never seen much of that here. That would be..

And as Guido mentioned, I don't think you will see it in August. How long are you in?

Kind of jammed up through Monday but I’ll see if you are still in Tuesday. And if you find a local chess park I’m curious where that would be. I haven’t seen one but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
I keep a set here in NOLA. We can play wherever.

I think you two should get a blanket and bring the chess set to the Fly.

Maybe pack some cheese and rosé.
