[what is this?]
Sangeeta Agnes Hosea from Bangalore, India learnt to play chess by watching her Father and brothers play. As chess books were hard to come by she strengthened her game by playing through the newspaper chess columns of Raymond Keene and Leonard William Barden. Though she hasn't devoted herself entirely to the game the internet has allowed her to stay in touch with it by playing correspondence chess.

She is a frequent contributor to <>. User: Open Defence is her screen name.

  technical draw: <Open Defence>Open your other forum. I'm ready to challenge you to a game of dozens. The last time we played you slaughtered me, you had me for breakfast, and you spat me out like the loser I was.

However, I have been practicing and am no longer the woodpusher I was last time.

I know you are a GM at dozens but I'll be trying for at least a norm. Are you scared yet?

May-03-20  Open Defence: haha <TD> how does one play dozens ? and do you win if it is a <baker's dozen> ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Wiki for dozens:

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: OK, three categories for dozens. Fat, Dumb, and Ugly. All statements must start with "Yo mama." For example, "Yo mama so dumb when she passes a store that says "Open" she opens the door". That's a lightweight, I'm saving my big guns for the ending.

Another thing, no googling. All insults must be original. A winner is declared when one player resigns. (just like chess you resign when you know you are lost).

You can start at anytime OD and then we'll take turns. Lots of (bad) luck!
