    After suffering a draw in a rather boring French defence, i faced my opponents English,
    and getting a good position i succumbed after forty or so moves to a silly oversight,
    then in our last game i got destroyed. Therefore coming to the conclusion that I am
    not a worthy foe i request that one of the better players take him out, currently he is
    rated 1780s, pm me if interested, regards robbie

    (Nimzo, Legget, GP anyone, you must avenge my honour)

    I'd love to try to avenge your honor as long as I'm white.

    PS. We can talk about financial compensation later. ;-)

    Perhaps you could use a ouija board to decide moves...

    I heard Ouiji 2.0 uses tablebases and has a better endgame.
