Match Challenge: karlw vs zoeyk
Posted: Apr 14, 2021, 5:55 AM

I officially challenge zoeyk to a rated Pente match. I propose the following format:

1 set Pro-pente - 20+10 timer

~5 minute break~

3 sets Speed pente - 3+2 timer

~15 minute intermission~

1 set Boat-pente - 25+10 timer

~5 minute break~

2 sets Speed-boat - 3+5 timer

~Victor Crowned~

Zoey, you can choose some dates/times and I will accept the one I prefer.

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Hi thanks Karl. Honored. I had a couple novel ideas which is why I did the unrated games. But currently I haven't studied for enough material to give a worthy effort for the format you propose. Also I'm rusty in live play. And I have been retired from live rated play for a decade. Im not looking for high pressure games. Just occasionally try a line casually for fun when I run across something interesting to share with you. If in the future I'm feeling feisty with some fierce material you'll be the first to challenge. I know its not what you were hoping to hear, but I am technically retired in my mind. I just visit you with the occasional novelty sometimes. The unrated games we have had so far have been fun. Hopefully we can do some more when inspiration comes. Thanks

Ps, im fine for you to have the crown over me. I think you are slightly better, in terms of calculating things faster in real time. Im just happy to give you some fun puzzles occasionally. Cheers.

I might consider boat. Because it isn't taken as seriously. Speed pente, come on lol, we both know im underdog in speed.

I might be willing to do your match at some point if I am ever able to get in some live play practice time with a strong opponent. maybe richard. but I'll say i do not agree with the timers you put. incremental should only be on speed modes. and yes boat is deeper thought requires more time. a better timer format would be:

Pente 20

Speed Pente 2/5

Boat 30

Speed boat 3/7

I agree to these terms. Set a date.
