I publish a diary now and again to try to recruit players for our online Kossack chess team. Everyone is welcome to join. http://www.chess.com/... Our team has played 21 matches and has won 67% of them. We don't care how good you are. We have some top players and then we have people like me.
Game Format Our highest ranking player signed up for the match will be matched against their highest. Our second to their second ect. If the sides are uneven when the match starts the extras are bumped. You will play two games. One as white, one as black. You score 1 point for a win and .5 for a draw. When all games are over the team with the highest score wins the match.
You can also play live games online in real time. Our group is three years old and we play matches and sometimes have a kossack tournament among ourselves. So if you like to play chess, come on over and see us. At present we getting ready to play the Arabian Chess Masters. Come on and join us.
