Cliff Lee. Guy would post every time Lee gave up a hit


Yes!!! I knew it was a pitcher but couldn’t remember which one.

Sent you a message on there, Moldy.

 

I'll be around for only a short time longer so if you get it and respond, we can play. 

 

If not, then next time!

So I tried out this site. I have not played in a long long time. Maybe one game here and there over the last decade. I don’t like that 10 minute deal. I suppose you get used to it,but I’m not even entirely clear how it worked. Played four games... lost three out of four. One was a stupid mistake. Another I ran out of time I guess. Third I just got plain beat. Fourth I lucked into a checkmate. I need some practice If I’m going to keep up with the big boys. I’m guessing you can probably set it to give you a little longer amount of time for moves. think that’s what I need...at least at first.

We can do 20 mins like Moldy and I did...but I think we can also do untimed. 

 

And would be nice to play with Rudy, too. 

 

A TGF Chess Club would be fun!

VD, had to log off but...in the challenge I sent, it was for up to 1 day moves so that way we can start off with a slow game and play whenever we're online. 

 

Figured that way at least for the beginning here, it could allow us time to sync up or what not.

Can play this one fast or slow, it's all good.
