DESC corr. chess Open

Hello Ralf,

I would have loved to play this email-chess event (a few chessfriends here told me about it) if I hadn't some many games and things to do here. My best wishes of success for the tournament !

By the way what do you think about the future of email chess (I quite liked this way of play in the past but I experienced lost emails also), will DESC offer server chess also like IECG ?

Best regards,

Already have to many e-mails.

Prefer to play server chess. I get 100 of e-mails every day and to check everyone takes time.
