I've PMd Paranormian and Gummug to let them know the tournament has started.

I'll be giving the two players who haven't moved at all yet a while longer, however if we don't hear anything then what will probably happen is i'll remove them from the tournament and find replacements.

Freaking dang, reviewing my game against Saru... I revealed my queen a move too soon. sad.gif It was like I painted her blaze orange naked and threw her out there for all to see. Now I'm stuck picking up my shambles with no knights to speak of. laugh.gif I've really got to do a better job of memorizing plays.


If anybody still wants a free game, I'm open to it. original.gif

Has anyone heard from gummug yet?  I was challenged yesterday by Gary Hart, who appears to have also challenged Abercrombie (zombiedog).  Is this the mysterious gummug we have been waiting for for the past few weeks, or just some other random guy that wanted a game of Chess?

You're an epic player, Kratos, but I'm most certainly out of my element.

I like chess where I can actually see and talk to my opponent. *shakes fist at Chessmaster 3000 for Windows 98* Damn thee to hell!


I don't mind it too much now that I've gotten used to it. I do sometimes (like now) get my real board out and look at it from there instead of the screen just to help me think and to slow me down. When I rush I make stupid mistakes.

j4jak hasn't moved since April 27th and I don't think he's coming back.  I won our other game by default because he/she didn't turn up but because j4jak is white and hasn't even started the game yet I can't win by timeout.

j4jak has stepped out of the tournament due to time constraints, this means that the results of the games he did finish will no longer be counted towards the scoring in group D.

As we're now quite a way through the tournament I won't be accepting any new applications at this time, so now its a case of determining who will be going through to the second round in each of the groups.

Participants whose score guarantees them a place regardless of the outcome of their remaining games are highlighted green.
