What a tournament setting..... 40 games with a 21/21 timebank. Chances of another one of these happening any time soon...?

you like that?!?!?!

there are 1000's of players here and you want a tournament for 21 players?

you want a time limit where: if someone does use their time then: 21 days x 40 moves = 840 days is the time their opponent spends waiting ?!?!

21*40 + 21 = 861 for a 40 move game (neglecting time you spent on your moves).

861/365.25 = 2.357 years

2.357 years = 2 years 130 days 9 hours 27 minutes and 21.6 seconds

It seems I don't have anything better to do.

So did I. I figure I can get most of my Grand Split Seven games well underway before I get out of the opening in the upcoming 3/7 league games (when the damn first season ends). The Long Haul is simple enough thanks to a 21 day timeout and the Commodus is groups of 4 so only 6 games.

I know have a heap of games against players who are all about 500 ratings above me...2 against 2000+ (my ratings just under 900, for those to lazy to check)...I'm screwed.

Well see that's what's so great about chess, and really about any another game that anyone plays. When you first sit down, both you and your opponent are starting off perfectly even, and any combination or move is possible from then on, so trully anyone can beat anyone in this game. Ratings are just more like Vegas-odds... The odds of a 900 beating a 2000+ are----.... wow I'm sorry, my calculator exploded. Son of a.... Meh, well regardless, you still have a shot. ðŸ˜€

I came close at move number 29 though: .
Just needed one overlook at exactly the right moment...

The "Oh look a zeppelin" tactic. I know it well.
Anyway based on current ratings you have a win expectancy of 0.051 against me.

Redoing the 900 vs. 2000 because I think I did it wrong I get a win expectancy of 0.0018.
