    Hi there,

    I'm new so I might not be in the most appropriate place to find an opponent! At least this is a good excuse to introduce myself.

    The recommend opponents feature yields players mostly around the 1200 mark. I'm hoping to find a stronger player who doesn't mind an opponent with a provisional rating (such as myself!) I challenged a few ppl directly but they deleted the games and I don't want to impose myself.

    Anyone for a game? I've got one free slot out of my given 6.

    Dean :-)

    Welcome to the site!

    I never decline a challenge, so feel free to send me one if you like. My game load is a bit high, so I may be a little slow to move at times, but I do move relatively timely all the time.

    sounds perfect, consider yourself challenged :-)

    Thank you!

    I tried to send you a game after checking your ongoing public games and counting five, not six, but when I sent it, I received an error message stating that you had the max (nonsubscriber) six games in play. I'm not sure what might explain this. If someone else had sent a game that you haven't accepted yet, should it show?

    thanks for trying m8, i sent paul a challenge after his post - maybe the game total is only listed after each opponent has made a move?

    No doubt i'll be a subscriber soon, so this 6 game thing won't keep us apart much longer ;p
