Subject: improve chess at woodpushers

Message:
The Woodpushers, a great team, we are only just over 2 months old and are already in the top 20. Although of recent we have had unfair challenges, our captain has finally started doing very fair challenges, for example, check out the last 5 team challenges that we have accepted. As a team, we are having some members of the team that will be an instructor, they will be like a mentor coaching and improving there chess. Therefore´┐Ż..it will take a lot of dedication and hard work, lots of analysis work and that will be done by both players. Therefore, I am offering a gameknot member regardless of there rating, to come and join us now, and you will be teached to play chess. Even fairly high rated players such as 1800 players can also apply, as we have a very strong team. Please reply on this forum and via our captain davism if you want to apply. Please send an application to us, and tell us why u want to improve, how much effort and dedication you will put in, to improve your game, and lots of effort to help the team. We will also want you to be very very active on our team forums and write lots of posts, you must be a hard worker.



Remember, this is a chance to join this team, and dramatically improve your game, you must send in a very good application, we are not bothered about rating but dedication. Therefore, please tell us about yourself in detail



We look forward to your application

Best regards

woodpushers

Cheaters

Message:
This team encourages cheating. It's captain does not even have posting or messaging privileges. See the two threads in team forum dated 12/26 and 12/27
entitled "cheater....this is wrong". Stay away from this team and team captains do not play this team. They are documented cheaters.

Fair matches?

Message:
A quote from xerox: "Although of recent we have had unfair challenges, our captain has finally started doing very fair challenges, for example, check out the last 5 team challenges that we have accepted."

OK, let's check:

Woodpushers vs Bumbling Eejits, started 28-Jan-04
cpocf (1450) vs scott1314 (1250)
davism (1387) vs yurigagarin (1248)

Woodpushers vs kool team, started 28-Jan-04
cpocf (1450) vs spud68 (1098)
davism (1387) vs uni94 (842)

Woodpushers vs Arizona Kings, started 28-Jan-04
xerox (1811) vs smartidiot (1494)
kitb (1703) vs ronman (1373)

Are these your captain's idea of fair matches? It should be obvious, what is your team's key to success. It surely is NOT "dedication and hard work, lots of analysis work". When all on GK became aware of your methods, your road to number one spot might get rocky, because nobody wants to play with you. Well, your team have achieved at least one hopefully unbroken record: a team game with a rating difference of 889 points. In my opinion, games like these are useless, because the weaker doesn't understand why he lost, and the stronger is not interested in why he won.

Well done! You did forget a couple of other records they set that will be difficult to break. Most players with posting and messaging privileges banned. Most players knowing each others passwords, and of course, most spam trying to get players on other teams to leave thier team to join this cheating team. Not bad for a team less than six months old.

Want to see what fair matches are? Check out Chuck's Knights and Cynical Cynics posts. This is what teams that do not cheat work out.

Dates for xerox

Message:
Your first message in this thread was posted 26-Jan-04. The three matches I wrote about were started 28-Jan-04. Conclusion: nothing has changed. Davism continues with unfair pairings. End of discussion.
