Hi Aidoneus, I'll be traveling during Nov and Dec. I'm not sure of my internet access during the 7-8 weeks,
but I'll try to get online, somehow. If you don't mind my slow response time, we can try it. :)
( 20 stones seem too difficult... :) I forget what's your level…
9 stones in real-time versus turn-based are quite different… do you think 9 is too much ? :) )

I would love to play you Ed, thank you! I know that you are much, much stronger than me. I really don't mind losing, so I would rather not get 20 stones to have a realistic chance. :lol:

For sake of argument, let's say I'm about 10 kyu--maybe a bit better playing correspondence, I guess, but then I expect everyone is a bit better. What handicap would you feel pretty confidant in overcoming without forcing you to drastically distort your play? I shall abide by your better judgment. :D

Hi Aidoneus, Actually there's no way to find out unless we play many games. :)
How you feel about 6 stones ? If OK, please start a new thread.

So, over Christmas and new years I will have more time and worse internet, seems like a good idea to start one of these. I've only played a little correspondence over OGS, so this will be a nice experience.

On a good day I'm 8k KGS. I will take on all comers, regardless of their rank and open or closed book are both fine with me, but I would prefer someone who is at least somewhat active on these forums, since these games seem to have a good chance to 404.

I will play you giving 9 stone handicap. If you prefer closer game, let's wait for someone closer to your rank to show up. If you do want to play, set up the game. :-)

I would like to give it a try. I'm currently 4k on KGS and just dropped back from 6k -> 7k in EGF. As a recent tournament again shows, I play too often in 'blind flight' mode and am often too much focused on a single goal (kill that large dragon!! :mrgreen:). With a Malkovich game I hope to get a bit more structure into the thinking process. I cannot guarantee to respond always within one day, but the upcoming Christmas break could be a good start. Anyone will be welcome!

Edit: I quickly got a challenge by moyoaji, which I'm glad to accept. Thus the game moyoaji vs. schawipp has #246,

Next number will be #247.

Since it's what all the cool kids are doing, I'd like to give this a try.

I want to be one of the cool kids!

Or at least sit near them, and hope some of their coolth will rub off on me.

Anyone for #247?

Cool kids mention their approximate strength.

Oh, that might be useful to mention...

I'm 4k, but my enthusiasm can carry me lower if I try.

I've never played any sort of correspondence game before, let alone something like this, but it seems fun. Any dan players want to join me in a game? I'm 2-3d on KGS.

I can play even against you. You can decide colors and komi. I prefer open book, closed comments. Set it up, if you accept.
