Good man. Your a part timer ready to mix it with the big boys....just like our club.

Tbf, you certainly didn't make it easy when we had that friendly a while back. You'll hold your own.

You only improve by playing people who are better than you

Which in my case will be most people

Good game mate. Extremely tough. Basically sat in fear shit everytime I had to make a move knowing the slightest mistake would end me.

It's not really true. Firstly, playing people much better than you isn't that good a plan, because you have no opportunity to learn what works and what doesn't. If you only play against Magnus Carlsen, you're never going to learn which of your tactics and strategies are better than the others, because ALL of them will get hilariously ragdolled at the first hint of an inaccuracy.

And for a similar reason, playing people who are a wee bit worse than you doesn't hurt either, because it allows you to come up with tactics that actually work, even if your naive ideas and pisspoor execution would likewise get horsed by the players who are better than you. You can't learn easily if you aren't given feedback about which of your half-assed and not quite properly honed ideas are maybe good and which aren't.

Ideally, play against a mixture of people who are better than you and who are worse than you and  the ones who are about your skill level.

I'll take any pre-season games if anyone fancies it. Ahead of my 1st forays into the league will give me an idea of how pumped I am likely to get 🤣 chess user name is: pleslie999
