    Hello moderators,

    Can this thread and the thread with the cross table be labelled as important so they dont get lost in the shuffle of the games and buried near the bottom regularly?

    I have private messaged Altecman to inform him that the tournament has begun and given the link location.

    As you seem to have noticed, I have two games that are a bit slow moving on the part of my opponant. am I supposed to do something, or will they just forfeit?

    i am being a bit lenient, but if there is no move in 24 hours from now, then I will start looking into it.

    Guys, I'm heading home to visit the family for a few days ... not sure if I'll be online or not, so my games may be on hold for a few days.

    I am sorry Yoshimi but the tournament has already started. There are seven players and everyone is playing each other twice. I have only put up the first of two round robin pairings (21 games in the first half) and will put up the second half later when most of the first half is completed.

    If you still want to play when it gets closer to time for the start of the second half, i might be able to add you to the list as player eight if there are NO objections from anyone else.

    Can you please send me a pm saying who you are, so I just have some idea who I am talking to please

    yes, it is double round robin The second half you are kicking into the wind

    From post 22 by myself:

    Careth


    Of course with Brisbane and Queenstown coming up, there will be a more relaxed approach to the rules for move rates, especially for those who are playing in the tournaments.

    I was thinking of having 3 days per move and there is some vacation/holiday time you can take. Say 14 days total. Players must indicate how much vacation/holiday they wish to take before starting it.

    I would prefer to start the first half of the round robin draw, then we complete the second half later. If we play all the games at once, then the players would have 12 games on the go if we start all games at the same time.

    While I am proposing a relaxed nature for move rates, the actual move rate will be enforced. Just making it clear
    and post 27, also by myself:

    Pairings for the first half of the double round robin draw are going up now.

    I hope that all seven players enjoy their games.
