    Daniel Bell and Kaitlin,

    Are you both aware of some of the general rules for these tournaments? Time control is one move in seven days in each individual game.

    Any other questions?

    I think the main thing some people don't realise is that all the games are played at once.

    Concerning Axiom, maybe he should request a self-imposed ban from the shoutbox for the duration of the tournament if he's serious about playing and finishing? That seems to be where he normally makes the most trouble for himself.

    So that makes seven:

    Zwischenzug
    Ziah
    Boris
    Sunshine
    Daniel Bell
    Kaitlin
    Kruupy

    If there are two more entries, tournament will revert to single round robin and order of entry will be used to determine 'seedings'.

    Players are allowed to consult databases. Of course using an analysis board is fine. That is one of the main points of correspondence chess.

    The main 'thing' that is not allowed is use of chess engines and endgame tablebases.

    Part of what are rules and what arent is= what can be proved

    One hour to go then I will start creating all the games. I think I will need an hours break before starting to create the games

    I still think should use chess.com...

    You can set the time control to 7 days for each move, can use their graphical board, even has an analysis setup and people can just click a link to view the game in gui..
