LIVI-2 Tournament

Hey friends! Here is my proposal to you all for a friendly tournament of loop chess.

  1. Due to troubles in being in more than one Brainking event at a time, we will play the games in the Brainking server, but organize our tournament structure here in my website, as I have done before. (See livitmt, ck1tmt, & egtmt.)

  2. To make it easier for me to keep track of things, I'd prefer that we play only 1 game per opponent. I've done it both ways, & believe me, 1 is easier than 2.

  3. Since we'll have 7 players, this means each of us will play 6 games. Three games will be with white, three with black. Color assignments will be made using the standard charts used by the USCF and other such organizations. Players are placed in a list from 1 to 7, based on current ratings in brainking. Simply stated, if the rank of 2 players are either even-odd, or odd-even, the higher ranked player gets white. If the ranks are both even, or both odd, then the lower ranked player gets white. (Really, it is simple. See list below.)

  4. The player with white is primarily responsible for sending the invitation, though either person may do so.

  5. As to time limit for moves, I'd like to set my personal games at 9 days/move. That's to protect me in case of sickness or unforeseen troubles. However, those who know me, as you all do, know that I tend to move at a regular, much faster pace. So, perhaps each of you could decide what is appropriate for you. Also, set all games for public view and subject to being rated by brainking's system.

  6. As each game is finished, I would like for each player to drop me a note, telling me what happened. You can do this by Brainking's message service or by dropping me an email. However, I will, as time & opportunity permits, go to your profile and see how things are going as well. I will then record the results in the cross-table below.

  7. I feel that we could make the official start for Saturday, February 21, 2004.

  8. If there is anything I've forgotten to mention above, just ask me.

Terry [ ttrotter3@yahoo.com or trottermath@gmail.com ]

Player information

Here I will present some information about the persons in our tournament, so that we can get to know the "real person behind the userid". (If you wish to share your own personal facts, just let me know. Nothing will be shown here without your permission.) I will begin with myself.

     My name is Terrel (Terry) Trotter, aka "jestone" [my maternal grandfather was J. E. Stone]. I'm 62 yrs old & live in San Salvador, El Salvador. I'm a retired school teacher, field of mathematics. My website, "The World of Trotter Math", can be accessed by clicking the "Home Page" link at the bottom of this page.
     I'm married to a lovely Salvadorean woman, Gloria; we have 4 children (ages 35, 34, 32, & 20).

Pip J

Here is what Pip has written to us:

     I am 40 years old. Pip is a family name for me passed down to me. I have a wife Carol and a girl Lisa who is 14 tomorrow [Feb 25. -tt] We have been together for 17 years now. I have just set my own business up, a bit late in the day I know at 40 but that's me/ Here is the web site to that http://www.bubble-trubble.co.uk and my email is sales@bubble-trubble.co.uk

Geomomo

My name is George Robinson, married to Maureen for the last 40 years. Nickname MoMo (now you know how my nick "geomomo" originated). I was born and raised in Northern Ireland, served 12 years in the Royal Air Force, have one son who was married last year. He is serving in the British army in the Irish Guards. He was in Iraq last year and his regiment captured Basra and received the battle honours for that campaign. My Mum is 93 and in failing health. I am 60 in April and have been retired for 5 years.

Ælle the Saxon

     There's not much to tell. My name is Philip du Nard. I live in Granite City, Illinois. I am single and 49 years old. Years ago, I had a brief career in the profession of chiropractic which was cut short when I assumed the care of my disabled mother who was in a pretty helpless state and later my grandmother, also old and disabled. I did this until they passed last year. Currently, I'm struggling to regain my own health while I figure out what to do next.

     Of course, before all this, I helped subjugate south Britain back in the 5th century. :-)

     More recently, I have written some articles on Biblical topics and published them on the internet. They can be viewed at my website at http://community.webtv.net/prddcncc/Blessedisthenation


grillyx

I'm Phil Watts, aged 41 and I'm an accountant living just east of London, England. I could explain how I arrived at 'grillyx' for a nick, (it should really be grilly-x' but I'm a bit lazy), but it's really too embarrassing; I'll just say that it came about during an especially drunken evening at university a long time ago... I will have been married for 10 years this year to Jo, we have a son, James, who will be 7 in April, and daughter Emma who will be 3 in June.
