Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

Well the current games are barely moving, but I feel this should be saved from the upcoming archive.

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

Well I've got no correspondence games going anymore, so I want to play a Malkovich game with someone (read the OP if you aren't familiar with it). I have already played 2, but none are going on right now and I've always made my moves on time. It doesn't matter how strong you are, the game should be instructive for the forum anyway, but for the record I'm around 1800 on chess.com. Plus, I like to think I make fun moves, so you should enjoy playing with me.

If you want in, I'm fine with you just starting the thread. I'm not working this week so I'll see the thread soon enough. I've played white both previous times, so I'm giving you the white pieces if you don't mind.

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

I'm always interested in having my play publicly critiqued haha. Would you mind if I start the thread?

I'd prefer it! Quick rules question -- obviously no engine or friends helping, but where do we stand on opening books/databases? I don't care either way.

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

Sounds great, I'll get the thread started.

As far as opening books/databases, I was planning on treating this like an OTB game, so pretty much just us on our own. What do you think?

Re: Malkovich Chess Game Interest Thread and Archive

This looks fun. Would like to play with someone who has similar ratings (or higher).

Current ICC ratings:


Standard 2001
15-minute 1923

Both of those ratings are peak ratings though, I'm probably more like 1850-1900 strength.

Have never played a correspondence game before and ideally would like to start after SCOOP. Feel free to send a PM.

Standard disclaimer that 1) I haven't made a single move in any game since May, 2) I don't know if I can perform under the extreme pressure that is 2+2, and C) I'm an idiot.

Can you create the thread? I have an entire afternoon of soul killing meetings ahead of me.

1. Nf3 d5
2. b4

If you want to do a different 1st move that's cool, but I think that's what we had before on chess.com. In fact, if you want to use those same moves from our game back in May we can. We got through 5? 6?

Oh sorry, I didn't mean I'd play. I just finished a game and have some other stuff going on right now. But I'd love to see someone else take up the b4 gauntlet
