MetroWest CC 3rd Team Email Match

Team Email Match

The roster for the MetroWest CC team MCC-03 who will compete against the International Email Chess Club (IECC) is set, and has been submitted to IECC.

The games will start mid-June, and can be viewed on our website, delayed by 3 full moves, to discourage kibbitzing.

The Captain is Eric Berkey, and he will also be a player. The full roster is listed to the right. Their initial email rating is listed (OTB + 150 points).

James Krycka is a returning player from the MCC-01 "Dream Team" that defeated the IECC opposing team; a rare defeat for IECC. Mike Barry and Jason Krienke are returning from the MCC-02 team where Jason was the only MetroWest CC player to get a full point, and he did so as Black!

The IECC team is a seasoned international competitor that regularly competes with ICCF rated teams. ICCF is the FIDE equivalent for correspondence chess, except they are not corrupt, and are actually well organized :-)

Let's wish the MCC-03 Team good luck on their journey!
