I think I should be in league C, iv had a few pre season games and been skelped, currently getting my arse handed to me for the 2nd time by @GordonS. If its a hassle I'll happily be the whipping boy of the league! 🤣

I hope you'll not take it as an insult when I say you're one of us. And although I think I have an edge, my roaring bahookie of a move with rook to e8 that you brutalised by checking me shows you're not far off.

Big up the Division C massive.

That move aside I think I'm just delaying the inevitable but I'm looking forward to the league campaign. Hopefully won't embarrass myself too much 🤣

Don't underestimate yourself. I hadn't played chess since I was like 10 and managed to pull 6 wins out the bag.

"completely rewritten"

Like Stevie Crawford's damn line up every week.

Beginning to think it was rewritten by a p&b poster.

Provisional leagues incoming, any objections now is the time to raise them

We have three leagues of 11 so some weeks there will be teams with only 1 fixture

Hoping that’s a good compromise between those that wanted just 1 game per week and those that wanted to stick to 2

Looks spot on min

Everyone's standard came up across the season, you definitely wouldn't have been out of place at the start and I'm sure you'll catch up. I literally didn't know the name of a single chess opening until the Queen's Gambit was on Netflix, and I didn't know what that was or the name of any other opening until after the league was underway. I found the tutorials on Chess.com really useful, and there's a bunch of stuff on the main openings on YouTube that I found I needed to watch to avoid getting an early surprise. The games became more enjoyable when I started feeling like I was losing rather than beating myself.

That's actually pretty funny.

Which P&B poster is Jeremy Silman then? Who started the seething wreck patter?

ETA - Gutted not to see how untenable White's position is. The crucial part of the board hasn't been pictured.

I have now finished my five game series with Trogdor.  With a win and a draw and three defeats.   Lots of learning done in those games, mainly on how not to open. 😂

I scraped a win with 98% accuracy, and got destroyed with 80% accuracy.  I never realised just how big an advantage white actually is.

Viking ton is probably the main proponent of this type of patter, but I don't know if it originated with him. Stuff like seething is now just part of the p&b lexicon, there's even a poster called Seething.

Here's the full board.
