My entry went in today.

Entries close at end of month.

You have to be a member of Australian Correspondence Chess Federation to enter.

This is a really tough tournament. It is played in three stages. Entrants are put into groups of 7-11 players who play a round robin. Only the winner of a group progresses to the next stage.

You are likely to run into all levels of players from Correspondence Grandmasters
to novices, not to mention strong over the board players giving correspondence a try.

What's the time control, David? Up to 10 concurrent serious correspondence games would be quite onerous I would guess.

10 moves in 50 days. remember you should be able to get through the opening in a lot less than 50 days n most games so you will gain time on the clock.

:eek: How many hours per day would players typically be spending on each game?
