Chess

Postby mnstrviola » August 22nd, 2011, 7:57 pm

I thought I might as well put a chess board up here, cuz I figured since we are a gathering of nerds there has to be some chess players :)

I kind of just got into it myself, despite knowing how to play it for about 5 years.

I used to play on there, but had to stop because they were hosting a virus which infected our computer.

I've thought about a chess thread, but I actually didn't see that many hardcore chess players here. I made a poll back in the day: http://www.scioly.org/phpBB3/viewtopic. ... ess#p87193

By the way, I challenged you, mnstrviola. :twisted: My username on chess.com is EASTstroudsburg13. Surprised? ;)

EDIT: Assassination #52 was called Checkmate and had a chess theme. I defeated the Assassinator in a chess game and received a clue in return.

Assassinator wrote:Ok, the first challenge has been played, against EAST. He won, so I will PM him my hint that I have promised.
Here is the move history:
[Event "?"]
[Site "Pogo"]
[Date "2010.05.07"]
[Round "?"]
[White "EASTstroud13"]
[Black "SciolyAsasinator"]
[Result "1-0"]
1.d4 Ng8f6
2.c4 e6
3.Nb1c3 Bf8b4
4.Bc1d2 O-O
5.Ng1f3 Nf6g4
6.e3 e5
7.dxe5 Rf8e8
8.Nc3e4 f6
9.Bd2xb4 Re8e6
10.Bb4c3 b6
11.c5 Bc8b7
12.Bf1c4 d5

18.dxc7 Qd8xc7
19.Qf3xa8+ Kf8f7
20.Qa8d5+ Kf7e8
21.Qd5g8++ 1-0

It was quite a good game. Congrats, EAST.
Any more challengers?

I never tried chess.com. I tried yahoo chess and ICC, internet chess club. I play hardcore chess at national competitions for money. My US Chess Federation rating is 1500. I've beaten masters and experts which are 1900+

OSNAP. :!:

My USCF rating is a nice round 999 right now. I definitely feel like my playing level is better, probably around 1100-1300 range.

Lol, first time I played, I went to 1024. I really don't play often, thought my level of chess play is constant. I play for 2 months in the summer and quit for the rest. I never get worse, I just pick it back up. My neighbor is Dan Heisman who runs the chess club. It brings in 600-2500 point members. Once a grandmaster came. Here's his info http://www.uschess.org/msa/MbrDtlMain.php?10158290
