    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.

    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?

    I need a more committal answer than this. Are you in or out?

    I'll play. I'll dropout though if Nic confirms.
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    You can still play. That would make five with you and Nic in. It's all good if you play.

    I think just 2 would be good for me too
    Avatar is a game I played at a party and finished by castling queenside for checkmate, and has a pleasing degree of symmetry.

    Looks like it will be double round robin.

    I have heard nothing back from Nic DC, so looks like we are going with 4 players.

    Boris
    ggrayggray
    Schu
    Saragossa

    I will post the games later tonight.

    Nic DC, if you do want to play, you need to confirm this.
