    I'll probably have a go, what are the rules ?

    *edit* actually I am more interested in time controls, I know what Freestyle means.

    cheers

    Are you aware that this tournament is freestyle? Meaning engines, computers, opening books and endgame tablebase use are all legal and encouraged.

    I would probably need to be able to take at least one timeout in order to participate. I am hoping to be away for slightly more than a week continuously during mid-October.

    Aside from that I'd be happy with 7 days/move flat or with the time limit used for CC tournament 7. I would not be happy with a faster flat limit and would not play if one was used.

    Understood.

    Either one is fine by me. For the time control used in cct7, I am thinking that the initial number of days (30) is too high and should be reduced.

    Hello Dougy and welcome.

    Looks like the same time control as cc tournament 7 will be used. So it is 30 moves (initial time) plus 3 days per move. Exactly the same as otb fischer type time control.

    Also a player must make one move inside of seven days in each game.

    Just confirming, are you aware that this is a freestyle tournament?
