No, I'm not talking about the stupid show, I'm talking cold, hard, chess. Where the men are separated from the boys, the wheat from the chaff, and the kings from their queens.

Lets do a tournament. Doesn't matter if you're good or bad, since most of us are horrendous, so don't feel discouraged. 

Tournament will follow a simple format:
- Double-elimination.
- Games are best out of three.
- 10 minute clock.
- No outside help, from people or computers.
- Games are played on www.chess.com.

Drop a comment or hit me up with your chess.com account name if you're interested. Then in the next few days I'll make a schedule and we'll get playing.

Step one of making sure you win a tournament is selecting the right opposition, Dave!

So that's why you arranged the tournament here, rather than with a group of people who actually know how to play chess

Rik is that guy who organises a chess tournament at the special needs school because he cant compete at his own club and needs the ego boost.


It's not a retreat, it's a flank around the world.
