Is anyone able to supply a link to the regs for this tournament?

The tournament list is at the bottom of the page supplied in the link at the head of the first post.

Is that what you meant Garvinator ?

No, he seems to be trying to find the tournament rules.

I see on the links there is a bit of a bunfight going on because the players initially play in twelve "quads" which are double round robins and some players have kicked up a fuss about having to play all their black games at the same time while others do not have to do this.

However those that get three blacks at a time will also have three whites at a time in the second phase, and vice versa.

Yes, it is the tournament rules that I am after, which I can not seem to find.
