=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= In the past few years, the closest I've come to playing seriously a game related to chess is in the Arimaa gameroom (http://www.arimaa.com). I have a win against the bot that beat multiple Arimaa World Champions.
I generally use Lantern Chess ("finger LanternBugs" for a link) to connect to ICC, both on my laptop and iOS devices. I have also contributed to Lantern's improvement, whether suggesting features or even occasionally writing some code. In many ways, for me at least, it is an incredible interface.
As a BettingBot manager, I try to feature major events that I know about. This generally includes major American sports, as well as golf and tennis majors. But I'd be happy to do anything I hear about in time.
I have run personally appealing tourneys like 75-second bullet and standard elims with 3rd-place games, but I mainly run scheduled events now. Sort of a super-backup for Sleepless Nights at this point.
As it turns out, I'm often connected and right at my desk, but idle and quite distracted. If I can help you, then sending me a personal tell will get my attention either immediately or when I return.
