________________________________________

Hi, my name is Greg & I have been playing chess for over 50 years. Between the years 1968 & 1990 I was quite active. I was a member of the USCF, CCA(Cleveland Chess Association),Parma Chess Club(south of Cleveland) & captained the Gilmour Academy(Gates Mills,Ohio) chess team 1970 till 1972 when I graduated. My rating during those years(1968-90) fluctuated between 1750 to 1950. Played in the State Championship (OCC-Ohio Chess Congress) a couple of times in the 1980's with modest results (+1,-3,=2 first time & +2,-2,=2 second time). I might have done better but my style is aggressive & it often cost me points in tournaments. Since 1990 I stopped playing competitive chess & still enjoy playing but only casually. My strong suit has always been the analyses of games. I have always had a passion for the game & still do.

  Annie K.: <WinKing> Hi!

The Bookie Championship Leg ends on April 11 (with the end of the US Championship), can you start the Spring leg sometime soon after that? :)

The hiatus between legs will have to be pretty short, if we don't want to miss too much of two interesting events - GRENKE and Zurich (this year also called Korchnoi Memorial).

Both apparently start on April 13, so you may have to miss the first round or two (depending on how long Daniel will want to keep the Championship results on display), and with only in-play winner bets (where feasible).

Here's a very good new resource, btw, the chess24 calendar for 2017: https://chess24.com/en/read/news/20...

  WinKing: Thanks <GoldenExecutive>. It is difficult as you well know having done it yourself in the 2014 Championship Leg. I like playing the ChessBookie game but I still enjoy playing in our 3 prediction contests more. :)

  scout118: <WinKing>: <scout118> <This place could use a little action. The Shamkir Gashimov tournament should deliver the well needed 'shot in the arm'! :)>

That's for sure. I for one have more spare time for this leg. And with you as bookie, there most likely will be more interaction.
