Sigh...ok, let's do an Immortal Game history lesson.
I think I have had more public challenges on the Only Chess forum than any other single person - don't ask me why, maybe people think I'm overrated. To every single challenge I've made it abundantly clear that I will accept if three criteria are met.
1.You're good enough - I'm the only one that decides this, and basically, if my rating doesn't move up at least 15 points from a win against you, then you aren't good enough.
2.I have enough time - My game limit is generally between 20-25, as you can see with the KG Muzio Tourney and the 2007 Championship I currently have over 30 games - definitely too many, so I'm really not accepting challenges from anybody, unless you're over 2300 and I really want to play you for some reason.
3.I feel like playing you, and I think I'm reasonable, I DO accept challenges, and sometimes I even make exceptions. I've taken some from players like Kmac27 and Whirlpool - I also took a couple from Yugoslav even though he didn't meet number 2, so I gave him some unrated games which he played very well in and got the best of me.
Take note dmn, that only one of those games was a personal challenge like the one you're asking for. Also note that Whirlpool has a much higher rating than you, and when he asked for the challenge I had a whopping 10 in progress games, and he asked for it to be a KG - basically my rules, how could I say no?
So, if you really
want to play me, you should get practicing, get your rating up much higher, and make me an offer I can't refuse - i.e. a KG game.
