Recently on /b/ the idea of having an Ernstchan-internal chess tournament came up. So let's give it a shot. I have created an invite-only chess club on chess.com which you can join by clicking here: https://www.chess.com/club/ernstchan-chess-club/join/e00a81

I could only a 30 members club because I only have a gold account, but 30 should be sufficient for now, considering this is a dead imageboard.

Maybe we can have regular live tournaments, including live streams on Ernstiwan/Discord.
If we get enough members by then, I'd suggest a Blitz tournament for October 31st.

What do guys you think?

Anybody have any good educational YT channels/vids for intermediate players?

I used to be in a chess club as a kid but quit after losing to a (literlly) retarded dude in a competitive game. Haven't played much since, so I'm feeling very rusty, guess I'll just play a couple of games vs computer.

Why not Lichess?
No stupid requirement to play an unknowable number of regular games on their shitty site first.

That feel when uncultured and not knowing how to play chess (played it perhaps three times in late childhood and only with help)
joges on you I'm the reading maniac

Holy fuck am I ever retarded. I can see the patterns of chess but my mind can't cast itself two moves ahead (yet).
I'm thinking its all about practice but everyone is decimating me at chess. I can't win a game, which is fine but my blundering moves are completely ruining the tempo of my matches.

I think it's a great idea, but what's your level (ELO) exactly?

I've created a discord that can be used to coordinate this. I'm sure it'll come to nothing but figured it doesn't hurt to try

Still there? The Discord link is not working anymore.

Here is a relatively famous chess puzzle. Enjoy.
