Thought i'd start this thread for any discussions relating to practice matches, as there are quite a few going on right now.

I'm finding that it's quite handy to have a few practice games first because until recently i hadn't played chess for a long time, and I think that's the case with quite a few of the other particpants aswell.

The King is still very much alive and in the building - but only here on UM, so enough already with the conspiracy theories!




...OK, maybe I did have a brief stint in a Texas gas station, but that was in the 80's...

Burnsy, I've played thistle 9 times and she beat me in 8 of them. Watch yourself. wink2.gif

Two hundred pounds? I'm not trying to buy cocaine!

Dougal: Oho, Ted, the Italians know about football, all right. And fashion. God Ted, do you remember that man who was so good at fashion, they had to shoot him?
