    Hi
    I am trying to get everyone together to take on a strong player.
    PAWN RIOT has agreed to take the challenge.
    We will vote on moves, and I will message our response to PAWN RIOT.

    Here is my message to him.

    >Hi
    With your permission, I would like to start a thread titled PAWN RIOT vs All Of Us (or something similar). I will try to get the whole forum to participate against you in a game. I will try to take a vote on our moves and message you with the move we decide on. I think it is only fair that you get white. If you are interested, please include your first move with your reply. With each new move, I intend to post a fen with the position on the thread. I think we shouldn't try to enforce heavy time restraints on it either, this being experimental. Just message me whenever you decide on a move, and I will do the same.
    How does this sound?

    Here is his response

    ..That sounds fine,i will leave it to you to sort out the finer points in the forum All the best paul....1.e4

    First of all, let's all give PAWN RIOT a hand for volunteering to do this. It is very, very nice for a player as strong as him to give us his time.

    Also, I want to make it clear that although this is unrated and unofficial, no one participating in the thread should use engines for analysis. He's taking all of us on. The least we could do is keep it honest.

    Now, to the challenge!

    PAWN RIOT

    1. e4



    Black to move.

    I vote 1. ... e6

    Current standings

    e6 - 1 vote

    Awaiting other responses.

    This should be fun.

    oh man , give that guy a dummy tit! 1.e6 easily transposes into Sicilian anyway, so i vote for 1.e6, and if you are not going to play, then boo hoo, wait a minute, am i playing? or is it open to any and all?

    Perhaps, later if someone suggests an outright blunder we can ask them to vote on a different move. Another possibility is to analyse the position as a group before we start voting. This is really open to ideas.

    look man, just play the game, the Frenchies will probably get outvoted anyway, that's what happened in our game against RHP international, we voted 1.e6 but others voted 1.e5, big deal we learn something about the way others play. you're a good man in a fight dude, so what you say?
