nah, a lot of the players there are moderate or low as well.

and there is a point, because the better players instruct while they beat you, so you can get better.

Darn... recently committed to having a look at the poker league on Sundays. Played chess in school days to a reasonable level, would struggle to hit intermediate at the moment. You play timed turns?

Anybody want to meet up for a casual game and a beer/coffee near the Russian Hospital? Very likely to be an easy win for you until I get back into the swing, but a good excuse to sit in the shade.
