ICCF-US has begun play in an 16-board Friendly Match against a team from Japan. This is only the second time in known history that the USA has played a Friendly Match against Japan. The first occasion was just a 9-board match during 2013 - 2014, with barely a win for the USA, 9.5 - 8.5. Our first board board is being played by IM Corky Schakel against CCE Loren R. Schmidt. IM Corky Schakel is also the USA Team Captain. You can find this match at the following URL: https://www.iccf.com/event?id=66942 .
