Can’t wait. I am told IM Fluffybunny has constructed a team precisely engineered to a 2199.75 average rating and that they plan to crush us, specifically (as if no 2190+ teams were going to show up from NYC and UT Dallas this year).
I would have lobbied for the team name “Two Chessplayers” but it’s not my team. I am a lucky passenger.
I have reviewed my previous USATE prep list. I am studying and my openings are nearly up to speed. All that remains is to choose between 1.e4 and 1.d4. (Heh. Sorta.)
