Catch22 and I are available. If at first you don't succeed...

I would love to play, but I'm trying to get a friend the gold she needs to become a Life Master this weekend, then celebrating my brother's HS graduation the week after.

Han, please get in touch with me. I will be available 3 days after now whenever you want. I am not talking about JEC matches though.

Is it possible to set these matches up similar to vugraph, so there's some group of operators giving commentary separate from the kibitzer crowd? There are quite a lot of kibs and it's sometimes difficult to keep track of the comments of those with more experience.

You can mute them in several ways. But i agree with you that it would be better if BBO has an option where u can mute everyone EXCEPT the ones you want to listen, or except your friends. Instead of trying to mute one by one everyone else you dont want to listen to and leave friends open.

Lost by 73. We built up a solid 5 imp lead in the first part of the match but they turned it around in the last 26 boards.
... and I can prove it with my usual, flawless logic.
