hehehe !! Tehsin bhai rey paisi.
Open challenge in chess
To fix the minute issue you must be the host and create the table, instead of just getting into any table. You will have different options to choose from. You can create a table with any minutes you want and can add increments (by seconds) on each move.

Hey Teammanager, can you please help me.

whenever I tried to play chess, in yahoo most of the the time just after starting the game, I find that I have lost. What I've found out that before the match there was no time limit but just after few moves opposition changed the time limit without telling me. It's a cheat. That's why I don't bother to go & play there. But I love to play chess.

How you get rid of this sort of cheat?

If the match is not rated only then opposition can change time limit in the middle of the game. And if that is the case then it will not effect your rating.

The best way fix that problem is open your own table with your own limitations if you prefer. Then others will come and play against you. Hope this helps.

I play in yahoo sometimes for fun (mostly Blitz/Short games). My yahoo rating is little over 1800. I used to play in regular tournaments few years back in U.S. and long before in BD at national-junior level. (USCF rating : 1870 QRating:2009). My yahoo id: rashidfarook@yahoo.com

Maybe we could have a little banglacricket yahoo chess championship? Someone volunteer as a tournament manager?

1870 USCF is very high. I'm a blitz player too - the faster the better. We should play sometime.

Wow! going through this thread now I see a lot of chess enthusiast! I have lot of fond memories back in BD with chess. Riffat (GM/national champ) and I were classmates and Niaz Murshed and Zia also went to our school (St. Joseph's). I played cricket with Zia once, he used to live upstairs where my cousin lived. Among the ppl I knew from back then at national level I know Nikkon apa (Rokhsana) and Neamul Bhai still play in New York. I met Neamul Bhai in NY Open 10 years back (where I lost 3 games in a row after being in top 4 in Class-A section). Among the recent players from BD, I know of Ashik (he reached ELO 2100) who has moved to California and was in Atlanta briefly after coming to U.S.

Can't resist posting some funny memories now back from bd. Around '92 I was playing at a qualifying for a FIDE rated tournament. In round-4 I think I was paired with Taneema (then national women's champ) and Nikkon apa (her rival) was in the next board. She was keenly interested in wanting Taneema to lose but I was just too excited to be playing the national women's champ. We got into a closed middlegame and Taneema asked "You want to draw?". And I was like "Oh sure!" and was full of glee and overjoyed until I looked over my shoulder and Nikkon Apa was all upset and everything. Later she kept saying "oh you were just soo ready to draw, at least you could pretend you are doing her a favor than the other way around". Then I beat Nikkon Appa 4 rounds later and knocked her out of the tournament

Thanks to this thread, I found cluster11 who is a old friend (actually friends with my older brother) with whom I had lost contact. We used to play chess in the early 90s before he came to US to study.

I used to be a pretty decent player, but i have not played for while... in particular i have no experience of playing online (my yahoo rating is currently provionsal). I gonna try to play some games to get my ratings up and then come back I guess.

For the record my yahoo ID is: reaz13, I hope some intermediate people would like to play with me!

Cluster11 pls check your U2U message.

guys anybody online right now who wants to play with me before the match starts? Please hit reply....

I am looking for a not so good player to beat. Carte Blanche has done enough damage to my ego. He beat me being handicapped (took off his queen)....

Now I want to regain some respectability playing some one else - preferably one who isn't good at all...


I am on campus and I IRC is blocked from here and I have absoultely nothing to do today......

so guys be kind and play with me....

Ok. How about starting a match thread with 2 teams playing each other? We could u2u other members in the team and decide on a move and post it here? I know sounds slow but maybe it'll be a start and posting comments in between by other members cud be fun too. (I wonder if we can post game graphics per move someway for ppl unfamiliar with chess notation) I've the following list so far:

Carte Blanche: xxx_shokk_xxx
Cats_eye: Bri_dge2001, Dhaka89
Cluster11: cluster111974@yahoo.com
Rubu: mr9rubu@yahoo.com
TeamManager: masum_aiub2001@yahoo.com
Tehsin: tehsin24@yahoo.com
Orpheus: ?
cricket_pagol: reaz13@yahoo.com

BTW, cricket pagol's brother is playing email chess with me right now. So maybe he shud in the opposite team .

About time i dig up this old thread again. These days there are a lot of BC members. So hopefully i will get more than handful of opponents.

So come on guys. Don't be scared. (Just kidding)

Give me a buzz on yahoo messenger if any of you guys want a chess game. My yahoo id is still the same.

I will go with the same question again. Can you prove me wrong?(CB, you are not invited)

Thank you.

CB is filthy good chess, remember playing him during match threads in the chat room. He was kind after he beat me.

Miss his presence in BC

বাঘ ভাই, এতো হাসেন কেনো? Carte_Blancheর সাথে যতদুর মনে পরে একটা গেম হেরেছি, তাও লড়াই করে। যদিও খুব খারাপ খেলেছি আমি। পরেরবার ঠিকই দেখে নিবো।
একটা খেলা দেখে আমার Talent বিচার করবেন না। এতে আমার কেরিয়ার অকালেই শেষ হয়ে যেতে পারে। দয়া করে আমাকে জাতিয় দলের খেলোয়াড় দের কাতারে ফেলবেন না।
