    Just a quick thread to gauge interest. Post if ya are. We could all throw in a few quid to a prize pool and i know a central pub we can hold various games in if that helps and people dont mind playing in that environment. Tis very quiet weekday eves.

    We'd need own boards, clocks etc.

  • Id be interested




  • Have not played in years, but I'll give it a go.




  • I'd be interested, not that I'm very good but I make excellent fodder..




  • "Central pub" Let me guess.. put me down anyway. I'll be fodder, you could probably add jonny to that list too.

    When are you thinking of?




  • open to suggestions. it's Anseo on Camden street Papa just in case you were in any doubt :)

    we can get some numbers first and then work something out. would be nice even to get 8 people, have a knockout competition with a couple of pints in one evening. nothing too serious, maybe 10 quid a head to get us into it and spice it up a bit and to get some sort of a scene going.

    one word : Hustler




  • that a yes then? ;)

    it's really bad. poker has had that effect on me. i wouldnt even consider playing this unless there is money to be won. 10c each is fine by me, just a mental thing :)

    seeing as itll be all the poker crew i'm sure we'll be rebuying the fcuking pieces by the time it happens! :D

    Karly, I already told you, I will NEVER play you for money. What ever happened to playing something because you enjoy the game? :rolleyes:

    either of the two is a fair comment I think ;)

    ok so €100 a game,
    €5 to rebuy a Pawn
    €10 to rebuy a bishop or Knight
    €20 to rebuy a rook
    €50 to rebuy a Queen
    €50 bonus if you get checkmate in 10 moves or less...

    So how many cards do you start with again? ;)




  • God Iago! Combining chess and poker?! What would a royal flush do!! DeV would be wrecked trying to figure out the math!!

    Scary thoughts, but the thing is I'm sure it will be done...

    i've never played a game of chess for money and i do enjoy the game a lot. i'm presuming there will have to be a prize to get most of this shower to show up and cash is all they undestand! :p

    we can play for pints if it makes it better.....or a title in the sig. couldn't give a bollo>< myself, think it would be cool either way.




  • and no suicide/buggery or whatever you call that variant where you have to take a piece if you can.

    i want down to earth, honest-to-goodness, magnolia, vanilla, Dido, chess.

    I believe you have offered before...

    8 people,
    tenner each
    Prize pool:
    3rd place: €10 (entry fee returned)
    2cd place: €20
    1st place: €50

    I'll look into a format straight away...:D




  • LOL

    'I will NEVER play you for money' - and here's a prize structure :)

    i knew the gamble would get you sooner than later!

    sounds sweet.

    don't think the chess forum has seen this much action in a year!




  • ok we have 5, need 3 more....preferably not actual chess players.

    i play chess like business league poker. don't want anyone who knows names for moves.

    i will be mainly playing Hasselhoff opening #6 though ;)




  • What happened your sig?




  • Ok put me down. although I haven't beaten you in over a year. Papa will we have a heads up after Karl Knocks us out?

    :)




  • AGAIN!?!

    Remember there's money in this. We all know karlh can't handle the pressure of a big game! :D




  • low papa, very low :)

    i just turn my sig off every now and then. i just get all Hoffed out once in a while ya know!?

    glad yer on board ash.

  • No hard feelings meant... Putting you on tilt prior to the gamble :) I have to have some sort of handicap




  • you do. staredown.jpg
    SUCKA!!!!!

    anyways, back on topic......any more takers?




  • What about tom and Amp? We only need two people?




  • Papa Smut wrote:

    Please tell me you don't mean DeV....

    He takes 20 minutes to call when he has AA with AA on the flop, I dread to think how long he'll take over his opening move in Chess!! ;)

    time limit of 60 seconds per move...




  • You guys have got to turn off those sigs. A man should not be exposed to this much hasslehoff.




  • I'll do it. have no chess set or clock though. How does the horsie move again?




  • So is this tournament going to happen anytime soon or what?
