    Actually I'll leave that to someone more experienced. It is actually a complex procedure and looks like it can cause major problems if done incorrectly. Ill ask for help in the admin forums.

    I hope that they are not about the current CC title holder from Chess Chat #3.

    I don't see why anyone would bother about an unfair advantage in a social tournament.
    Sunshine,needless to say,you are above reproach,...and i have encountered no problems in this area thus far,from any participant.......i just think that there is no harm in a black and white reminder, as it is a cause for concern for some potential entrants.

    Garvin,

    This has been done. In the future (unless admin personnel change) the quickest way to achieve this end is probably a PM to me directly. I was unaware f the request until JGB brought it to my attention. Fortunately this didn't take long but it might have as I have not been reading this forum.

    Good luck to all competitors!

    With 8 entrants, it will be 14 games at once.

    If there is another entrant, it will become single round robin and so with nine entrants, you would only have 8 games at once.

    Thanks for the explanation Frosty. For a moment I thought that noise was all the innocent babies God slaughtered in Noah's flood.

    So once the tournament starts you play your first move of all your games and then play whichever game you want in any order?

    Do the players set up individual game threads or does an "arbiter"?

    You can play your games in any order you wish. As long as you make one move in each game in a week, you are fine. Of course if you wish to play alot faster than that, that is up to you

    I will set up all the games.

    wow, things really have changed around here since the last CC tourney I played in. I hate to make life difficult but I am going to have to cancel my entry. I find it a little too demanding playing 4 games at once. I prefer to play my Corro chess OTB and don't really feel like setting up and rebuilding each position for every game. Wish I had the time to play. Sorry again folks and hate to make life difficult.
