Uninformed poster, come here and say that to my face… after I defeat you at chess!!!

Deal, but whose turn it is to move at any given time will be dictated by on-the-fly arm wrestling matches.

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

Damnit! I'm too weak for that! You've rigged this game against me!

It all comes down to this! 12 matches, 12 ties! Has this ever happened before in all of Chess Championship history? Who the hell knows. Next up is of course the 3 stage tiebreaker. A champion will be declared TODAY.

Stage 1: Four Rapid games. Time Control: 25 minutes, 10 second increment. Whoever is ahead after 4 games will be crowned the winner. If it's tied:

Stage 2: Five sets of two Blitz games. Time Control: 5 minutes, 3 second increment. Each set of two blitz games is its own mini match and if anyone wins a set of two games, they are crowned winner. If they are still tied after 10 games:

Stage 3: Armageddon. White gets five minutes, Black gets four. No increment until move 61, at which point it will be 3 seconds per move. A tie means that black wins.

Boring

Anyone between me and that stone dies

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

Watching grand masters play chess is pretty boring because the games rarely end in anything other than a draw or resignation.

Professionals never get checkmated.

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

Isn't that the geewizz guy on the right?

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

Same expression?

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!



Lol. That was funny. I’m sorry, to G. But, that was funny. He does make the same fucking expression in every photo I see him in that I think it’s the same photo, lol. I mean, I’m not poking fun. Maybe I am. But, in a lighthearted way. Not in a cruel, you’re a catfish, I’m going to expose you, I hate you, kind of way. Definately NOT like that. He is a sweetheart.

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

He is kind.

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

He is alright.
Just kidding.
He seems like a sweetie.

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

I know you were kidding! He is a sweetie.

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

He looks more like Matt Damon…lol

Re: Who is watching the Chess Championships? Norway vs USA!

Shh, he looks like you and that is final, mister! Don’t argue with me. I have a headache and I’ve had it all day.
