    I've heard of "knight-odds" games or "rook-odds" games, where the stronger side gives up a piece to start.
    Bet that would be a popular tournament if anybody in RHP could enter with a realistic chance. I'd enter something like that, but I reckon I'd get an extra rook or two at the start!

    I decided to jump in and see how I manage against the higher rated players. You never know I might get lucky and at least draw a few! 🙂

    Since you, Trev, are overseeing this tourney can you please arrange it that I don't draw you. If our ongoing match is any indication I'll be dead before it's over.

    Perfect. Now I can come out of my hiding place and show my true Chess "colours". Beware all you "good" players...The 17 year cicada (GBS) is ready to emerge. 🤔

    No, you should thank trev as he is the one who set up the tournament. 😉

    If you look closely it is a 3/7 time limit.
