Very very funny your reaction when you realized that I could take the Knight on f8, hehehe.
Congrats to @stayoutoftherz, here is your medal 🥇 xD
Thanks you very much for all @schamangerbert, I remember when we were 3 or 4 players and now we are ten.
Happy New Year my friend! 🤛

This was so bad from you :)
I will beat you next time without any mercy
and pray to the sun and the moon to slow your connection down :)

hahahahaha, what you don't know is that my connection is always slow, so you can't do anything :)

Thanks - and thanks for the medal! Everybody who participated should get one :)
Wish you all the best in 2018!

Just a heads up @schamangerbert I didn't go beserk because I was unfortunately playing on my cell phone. That's also why I was unable to accept my first pairing and then had to rejoin the tourney :( either way was fun to play while walking around following my girl shopping haha I'll have to remember not to do that again. Looking forward to next weekend tourney. Happy New Year everyone!

Excellent tournament, I hope to participate once again, although my internet is terrible .. Thanks to: @ juanmi96 who has shown me the way to the tournament, greetings to @schamangerbert

You gained 330 rating points, so I think there is some to see from you in the future, I am scared :)

hahahaha I do not think the teacher can be scared with a rookie @schamangerbert, so be careful because it was a matter of luck .. Hahaha Greetings from Venezuela .. I hope to have a visit to my blog @ropavejero ..
