    Default forum chess game

    Let's play.
    Make sure always to indicate your move: colour and move number (e.g. 1. e4 is a white move, 1. ... c5 would be black's response).
    It may be good to limit the number of moves an individual can make to one per day.
    Here we go:

    1. e4

    Cool idea:

    1...c5

    Do we have to stick to the same color when we start?

    2. Nc3

    (let's go closed Sicilian)

    Consulting with Mippus:
    Should we keep going down the main line with 3. g3, or go more agressive (and out of most books) with 3. f4?

    Also, I hope I didn't usurp your game.

    A random question... for this game to work... somebody ought to be tracking the position of all the pieces?

    Wow, I read 2.Nf3, so I am happy my move wasn't a mistake ...

    You're supposed to do it mentally. But I guess we can periodically post the state of the game.

    Right now we are at a standard closed sicilian position, deciding on move 3 (whether to continue along the main line or to deviate--making Splittet and others on the the Black team sweat).

    I guess that is good reason to track the position.

    Nope not 2.Nf3, knowing that both mippus and I are positional players, I chose to go closed instead of open.

    EDIT:Anyone want to play a 1:1 and slightly faster paced game on my blog?
    EDIT 2: I'm not that good. Mippus is likely a lot better. I just like to play. And this forum style is intriguing.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Yummie, a closed sicilian. The very reason why I enjoy playing e4... I really like the lines where you postpone f4 and play Be3 and Qd2 first...
    so:

    1. e4 c5
    2. Nc3 Nc6
    3. g3 ...

    It does only look fair to stick to one of the colours...
    A diagram every 5 moves would be nice. Anyone who knows how to do that? Besides that, please do copy the whole game so far in every new post...
    Oh, and it is not MY game. Please...
