Re: Why are Swiss Tournaments Often an Odd Number of Rounds?

I liked 6 rounds over a bank holiday best. Plus old Surrey 7 Rounds Easter . I enjoyed 9 Rounds at the London Chess Classic in 2019 best. I think the earliest I'll play is 2021.

Re: Forum usage

12 years GAP in this thread.
I think Forum usage has increased in the last 13 weeks.
And lovely that some posters think I'm younger than I am.
Simon I enjoy your contributions too.

Re: ECF Finance Meeting

Book the Hotel 6 Years in advance. Small tournament.

My number 6 t shirt worn at chess over 100 times. I expect that is an ECF record.

As number 2 came up I was thinking Austin Powers. Nice to drift...

Re: Another Congress Bites The Dust

Many of us have ruled out Chess until 2021. Anyone think it may be 2022? I will be 60 that September.

Re: Some thoughts on anti-cheating systems

Published round five so will be nice at end.

I had been asked at work why I do not play chess on line. My reply too much cheating and some organisers banning toilet breaks and wanting too much webcam and audio control.
