I do love variants. Would play them often on lichess and play them correspondence style on schemingmind.com
Jerry, aka ChessNetwork, has some really great videos of tournament variants he did. Mostly 3 check and king of the hill. Very entertaining, highly recommend.

I haven't watched Jerry in a while, but his videos are awesome. Listening to him talk through his thought process while playing is very educational. Beginners should note that he rarely talks about "opening theory." He just develops his pieces sensibly while paying attention to how his opponent might respond.

Here are updated standings. It's been a bit over 3 months since we started. We should start the new one in early or mid January. Can I get a status update on all uncompleted games?

I beat IOWA_Actuary and Hagbard Celine, both as black, and both by resignation. I will figure out how to post the moves, someday/somehow. [Sorry for lack of posting, but hard to remember to check Diversions these days.]

I drew in two other games and resigned the other ones, as you have reflected.

Good games to everyone I played this season, and see you all again soon in the next season.
