    Having got through the first round, i would have thought the competition would be a bit stronger

    Well I hope you find your second Round Opponents Skeeter, Colleman and Alec Hine more to your "standard". You arrogant little man, who are you to disrespect your first round opponents. You certainly didnt set the tournament on fire yourself.
    If you require higher standard games, please challenge me, I will wipe the floor with you and post on the forum that I was disapointed with your play.

    Calm down, I wasnt meaning to offend.
    These players are all well above me and will always be
    Colemans already thrashed me twice and i expect more of the same.

    I dont disrespect my first round opponents at all, i scraped through by the skin of my teeth, and had to work hard.

    As to your challenge, yes I will play you and yes you will thrash me

    uh,man your rating is 1585 and in the first round you met one 1640,a 1180 and a great 683!Do you really thought those last two players(with all the respect for them) were going to kick your butt,or you're just posting to act like a cool player who got to 2nd round?
    Also respect to your opponents is a good thing in a chess site............now in the 2nd round you'll have the stronger competition you asked!

    who actually gave him a rec for that post? if you barely scrapped through then why were you complaining about the competition level in the first place?

    This is all going too far.

    The post was supposed to be ironic, in that after reading the post you would obviously look at the round 2 grouping and find how GOOD the opposition is.

    When i was in round 1 I was only ranked around 1200 which doesnt matter anyway.
    As to who reccomended the post, well perhaps someone understood what I was trying to put across.

    This was not intended as a nasty post.

    He has every right to reply, I just thought he was a little disrespectful to his first round opponents.

    I have since played whatshecalled twice and beat him fairly easily on both occasions. I was disapointed with his performance.
