37 ( +1 | -1 ) Sparring PracticeWhen I was on a team before it became defunct, the team captain had us spar together with unrated practice games. I enjoyed the chance to test various lines in an unfamiliar opening without the risk of losing rating points. I find it more satisfying to practice chess when playing against a real person. So, any interest in sparring?
23 ( +1 | -1 ) I'm interested znkiuOur ratings are well matched, so we should be quite even in playing strength. If you want to we can play a specific opening and/or discuss the reasons behind our moves during the game.
20 ( +1 | -1 ) Thanks to those who responded! Sorry, because of limited availability, I can't begin any more games. Maybe later. (and I don't think starting a list is necessary...(lost, lost, playing, lost...).
