    I know it's a fit-up, whatever protests you two make (not really, obviously. Glad you're okay, VT).

      Argh. I missed a win against ad hoc. I was well behind for pretty much the whole game but there was a clear mate opportunity that I just didn't see (after 57 Kh4).

      Good game AH

        God, and I was at that moment extremely conscious of the possibility of being checkmated, yet managed to totally miss that Bf6 move that would have given it to you.

          Apologies all for timing out on my games. We had a bit of drama here which, along with work, took my eye off the ball. I am a bit pissed off that I didn't get any notifications from Chess.com though as, when I do, I try and make sure I make a move. I know that my games are hardly likely to throw up any surprises but I still like to play them through to their conclusion. Apologies again.

            No worries, Bored. Hope all's well.

              Ah, yes, cheers, the usual fireworks at Bored Towers that gradually alleviate themselves. I would rather have been concentrating on my chess, though.

                That "mate in at most 3" opportunity for Levin after ad hoc's 57 Kh4 would make a great puzzle. Took me a fair while to work out all the permutations, even though there are only a few of them.

                  Only just seen, from taking the effort to look it up, that OTF22 finished 11 days ago. I don’t think the conclusion of any previous OTF tournament has gone so thoroughly unremarked. I mean ok it’s not Liverpool wining their first League title for 30 years but still ... congrats ad hoc and thanks all for some good games.

                    I have to admit I assumed it was still going on, because I've been checking this thread for news of it finishing. Congratulations to ad hoc, and well done to the incredibly suave, handsome and modest chess genius who was the only player to take anything from him in this tournament.

                    When does #23 start?

                      I am about to leave on a short holiday; the plan is to return Monday. If you can wait until then, I'll gladly set up the next round then. If you're too eager to wait, I'm perfectly fine with someone else taking the lead.

                        That's fine with me. Summer holidays soon so perfect chess time.

                          Yes, I'm up for the next one now (whilst also v happy to wait a while longer). Wouter, hope your mini-holiday was fun.

                            Tournament created; invites sent to all participants of round 22. Could you have a think whether I am missing someone? More invites are available.

                              Six people are in; three invites still pending. Will give it a bit more time.
