Call of Duty :)

Febuary 16th, Thursday, 7 pm eastern time.

Ok guys and ladies, this is our first scheduled game vs JEC and his squad. I am expecting Jimmy Cayne to be playing with Michael Seamon.

-28 boards teamgame. Barometer on, open to public kib.

- All undos will be accepted regardless of the reason including change of mind (JEC game rules due to being considered as practice match)
- All players who play in the game, has to log in only and only with 1 account during the entire match, even if other login is not watching this match (Again thats JEC game rule)
- No political/religious/racist remarks, notes, or account names please.


Those who are interested please post here. We will have these games every thursday evenings untill we get a better time for our European members (probably after nationals in Memphis)

There is a reason why i started this topic in A/E forums. We really need those who are ADV+ at these games.

Phil Clayton and Gonzalo will be with me in taking care of the arrangement of these matches. If i am not arround in forums or in BBO, please contact them for any issues. We all will be cheering for you regardless of the result b4 and after the match, and good luck ! Go get them guys! ;)

I imagine that a 7PM EST start is too late for anyone in Europe.

well Timo if you are in we only need 2 more, Raff is willing to play as well.

I don't want to look for out of the forum people but might try if things don't go well.

Unfortunately i will be on the road, leaving home monday :( If i am not driving at those times i can only come and watch. We need 3 pairs (1 for sub incase something happens in last minute) The sub pair should be in first 2 pair the other week auto imo. I think we should promote those who waits there to help us and let them play if they can not play this week. What do u guys think ?

I am waiting from Phil to make it clear, i am hoping he and his choice of pd can play so all we need is you finding someone from forum and practice a bit it seems.

Suspect everyone is just waiting until the initial interest dies down :rolleyes:

I'm happy to be sub for every match if you like, at that time on a Thursday I'll almost certainly be playing poker online, and it's basically guaranteed that one of my regular partners will be online too.

MickyB and Gszes, if you guys want it you are in. Please let me know asap, i couldnt reach to Phil. If you guys decide to play together please get in touch and practice.

Our rooster will be (if you 2 accept)

Fluffy-Wank

Gszes-MickyB

If u guys dont play and/or if i cant find another pair by tomorrow, i will have to shut the truck down at a rest area or something and will be teammate to Wank and Gonzalo. But this is really tuff for me, so i really need you guys or another pair from forums to play.

Thanks!

I'm happy to play with either of my regular partners, who are both occasional posters [Slmplicity if available, else Sasioc]. Sorry, I'm not interested in playing in a pick-up partnership. Happy to play or not as required and I don't need much notice which it'll be.

It might be more appropriate for Wank's alter-ego to take his place.
