    Chess Chat Freestyle Tournament #5

    Since there are no tournaments in progress, time to start a call for entrants.

    Last tournament held was a human tournament, so this one is freestyle.

    For those unfamiliar with freestyle- engine play, tablebase use is permitted.


    Those that wish to play, please state their interest here or by pm to me.

    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    Now that the three tournaments have finished, lets see if there is any more interest.

    I'm out for the rest of the year; want to use any time I get free that I might have spent on CC tournaments to annotate my old games instead.

    Apologies to anyone who was looking forward to beating me!

    That makes three. At least we have something more than a match between Boris and myself.

    If we can get a fourth, I will start.

    If we get a fourth, or just stay with three, do you guys want 2 or 4 games against your opponents?

    Some rules for the un-initiated:

    1) A player can claim a result once a tablebase position is reached. So as soon as the 5/6 man tbs are showing a result and the result is claimed and verified by myself, the game is over.

    If the position is showing a win in more than 50 moves, the 50 move rule does not apply and the result is a win.

    2) Please make sure that the move you post in the game is the move you want to play. Incorrect move notation is a binding move and can not be retracted, if the move is legal of course.

    So please be careful.

    Also, after a game is finished, it is appreciated if one of the participants from the finished game writes the result in this thread, so I am aware of it and can adjust the cross table as required.

    Time control:

    In a previous thread, KB and I came around to this proposal:

    * Three day increment for each move, cumulative from a base of seven days (eg must play move 1 by day 7, move 2 by day 10, move 3 by day 13, etc)
    * Seven days maximum for any given move.

    Sorry about that, I've just been really busy the last few days, but go on without me.

    Well done Garvin on the tournament win. Beat me comprehensively in both our games.

    I'm going to avoid playing these things in future if the entrants don't have a proven record of finishing games.
