    Is Tyson fully aware of what playing in the tournament entails? At this stage he has made one move in two of his games and none in the rest; does he realise he has to play 8 games at once?

    If it's Tyson Walker (from BCC) then all is normal. He perennially in time trouble! Perhaps a PM.
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    He'd have to make a post for that. Judging by the pic it is though.

    Hadn't seen that. Yup, that's Tyson awright. Perhaps Garvinator can have a word in his shell-like tomorrow night.

    As his postcount is zero (posts in this section not counting) he has no PM rights here yet, so I raised it so Garvin could email him if needed.

    Obviously this situation has cleared and Tyson has made multiple moves in all his games.

    so it looks like I am in for a tame series of games-
    1 black benoni, 1 black from's gambit, 1 Alekhine Chatard attack, a couple of white yugoslav dragons and a black sicilian schev keres attack.

    That's correct. I had a "new posts" page showing that hadn't been refreshed for several hours and confused it for a more recently refreshed one.

    I've just played a TN on move five in one of mine. Bizarrely, one of the two previous games in the same position involved another Tasmanian.

    Question, if it is 10 moves a week and I make 20 moves this week, does that mean I can spend next week making no moves?

    I think the rule is you can't go more than seven days without a move in any one game or you forfeit that game.

    I'm pretty relaxed about it if any of my opponents are very busy or away and want (slightly) longer at some stage, so long as they ask in advance.

    Hello Zwischenzug,

    Each player has to make one move per week in each and every game, the week begins in each different game when your opponent makes their move.

    Time in not accrued or added together. So if you make 5 moves in one day in a game, this does not mean you can spend five weeks on a move later on.
