How does this look?

I took out one game for each C player, and added two games against former D players. The D players will play each other, and two C players. Everyone plays six.

Code:
            J d b r a I a W J   
            u a r e c O c e e   
C           s n a k t W t r s

Dzibanche and I played to a draw.

He started out with a nice positional advantage but overextended and got into trouble (which I probably would have done as white myself). It left me with a one pawn advantage but I played too passively and ended up in a hopelessly drawn opposite color bishop end game.

Good game Mayan/Dzi!!

The overextending was because I thought I was winning a piece for a pawn starting with 18.g4 thinking that I was winning a piece. However after a bunch of trades I was a piece up but missed the 22... Qf4 move threatening my rook on c1 and my knight on e4. My queen could protect with Qc2, but then f5 would still win the knight since Qf4 also threatened nasty stuff on f2. So I chose to just give the piece back.

I think you should have declined the subsequent queen trade and you probably could have won, or at least pressed me hard.

Good game!

Looks reasonable and balanced.

We start "Random" games with the 6 different players? I'll try to send out invites later today if my opponents haven't already.

It's not letting me create a challenge vs act_123. Keeps saying max rating too low even if I make it an unrated game (using mobile app). Maybe he has to challenge me? Sent challenges to everyone else no problem.

I used to be +1200, then I had a really bad week. I will send challenges out.

I believe he is added as a friend already. I've never liked the chess.com mobile app for anything outside of playing, I'm guessing it is just an issue on my end through the app. Hopefully it will work fine if act_123 challenges me instead. If not I can take a look on my PC at home later.

I defeated Abstract Actuary as black in a declined smith morra. It was a crazy game, and I think 25. a4 was the big mistake on your part that let me blow it all open

Spoiler:


[Site "Chess.com iPhone"]
[Date "01/28/2020 08:24AM"]
[White "abstractactuary (1775)"]
[Black "Dzibanche (1795)"]
