    Does anyone know more than this? What time does it start? How many rounds? What time controls? etc. I can't find details anywhere! (online)

    Hello, M!!

    By all means there is the possibility for any person to have a half point bye in this event should they specify prior to the first round.

    They must let the organisers know about it, but aside from that there should be no problem,

    Take care and God Bless, Macavity

    yes

    I have entered and got a 1/2 pt bye from the organiser, Pyke, for round 3 - that's no trouble at all to obtain.

    I expect that I will get smashed. [and I don't mean with booze..or come to think of it maybe I do...]
