    I'm going to London to play blitz at the Kings Head Chess Club (they meet at the Wargrave Arms - http://www.khcc.org.uk/start2.shtml) on Tuesday, 28th July. I think it's a tournament but it might just be an evening of friendly games, or at least as friendly as games between an ex-Hackney player and Kings Head lowlife can hope to be.

    Do any Londoners fancy making it a mini RHP meet-up?

    Will it be in the evening?

    If so, I am up for it.

    EDIT: Duh, you said it will be in the evening. I will be there.

    Looks like it will just be me and you... you'd better make sure you wear your purtiest frock.

    I will see what I can find, just for you.

    Bump!

    Anyone else? Otherwise it would just be me and Fat Lady having a candle lit dinner.

    I might be able to make it - I'll need to double check, but it should be ok. Also, I'm *really* bad at 5 min blitz, so you'll have someone to beat :-)

    If RHP rating is to go by, I have a feeling that you will still beat me.

    There is a 5-minute blitz tournament tonight - the North London Blitz for those interested:

    That's a pretty rubbish rating you have on this site Tryfon. I wish my OTB rating was 600 points higher than yours as well.

    I won't be able to make it tonight. Are you playing in the one at the Wargrave Arms on the 28th?

    Emm, I thought Kings Head every Tuesday night does the 5-minute blitz - is it restricted more in the Summer months ?! Edit: Sorry - you wanted a mini-meetup. Please excuse my morning extra-denseness.

    I have made it once there in recent months, but it is a pain driving through traffic from North London to that area. So I don't know.

    I don't know if my ECF is going to stay roughly the same - I didn't realise Gibraltar was included in the rating calculations. Hope my rapid goes over 200 - that would be cool.

    Pretty much the same can be said for your non-existent CTS rating.
