    I'd quite like to see the draw as well, although as Mark Noble can testify my preparation doesn't always involve looking at my own games against an opponent.

    Isn't Ben Hague still a FM?
    Thought he's in to earn an IM norm.

    Is a CivicChessMan IM title the same as a FIDE IM title?

    why not have 1 of the reserve boards live on the net?
    Start with the top seed then follow the highest scoring reserve player.

    I realize no one really wants to follow our patzer games. But they should be entertaining...

    I'll be setting up the equipment Friday night.

    All 5 Masters boards are the priority, the rest are nice to have optional extras.

    I don't think there are enough working eboards, or even cabling to go around. Plus we need to have spare pieces to handle underpromotion on the eboards. So far, promotions hardly happen and when they do it has always been to Q. Not having available R, B & N piece would break the live broadcast.

    There's also the complication that we have not tested to broadcast 2 tournaments concurrently.

    Unless we have a Albin fan I don't imagine it's likely that we'd have an underpromotion before the relevant piece has been exchanged off on one of the other boards.

    why the hell is the game on monday starting at 1:00. It makes no logical sense, even with day light saving. (which begins saturday night)The game should just start at 2:00 like every other day. It is even more confusing for the game to begin at one. There was nothing on the entry form or the information that was put up prior about the game on Sunday at 1:00.

    Lets just ask what everyone thinks on Saturday.

    Logically, starting earlier makes even less sense when you account for daylight saving starting.
    Sunday's game still starts at 2pm.

    Only exceptions to start times are:
    Round 3 starts 1pm on Monday 1st October 2012.
    Round 9 starts 11am on Sunday 7th October 2012.

    Monday is Auckland Chess Centre's regular club night that starts at 7.30pm.
    Earlier Monday start is to ensure games are over before hordes of regular club members arrive for their club games.
    The situation would be quite bad if there are players who are completing their complicated games under time pressure.

    Final round (round 9) 11am start is due to players having to catch flights that evening.

    I don't know how I'll make it for 1pm start on Monday... and something would have to be worked out before then as to who's the backup arbiter until I arrive.
    Hopefully not a problem as in past events the players never had disputes.

    These start times were set by the organisers and if you wish to alter them, you'd need to get unanimous agreement from them and every player involved. Personally, I'd prefer a uniform 2pm start time, but hey, I'm just the arbiter!!!
