Congratulations to everyone who has made it through to the final round of the tournament!

 Round 2 has now started. There are a total of ten players in the final round. The scoring is the same - 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss.

Everyone plays everyone else twice, once as white and once as black. The player with the highest score at the end wins the tournament.
The timeout settings are still the same, 7 days timebank and 1 day timeout.

Atlantis is very tough if you dont think every move through thoroughly after your opening he will tear someone apart. Somehow I pulled out a draw our first game but he ripped through my Sicilian. I used a variation that doesnt exist that I thought existed in my brain hahaha :)

Dropouts? EoTs spot? Points?

Ah...... Not sure how I feel about taking someone else's spot to be honest.

Well, I guess I'll try finishing up the seven games I have going at the moment and kick on. If @Earl.Of.Trumps pops in prior to me starting any games he can re-take his spot. @Saru and @joc is that ok?

I'll start playing with my pen and paper once more. Hopefully that will help. 

I'll be last on the league table I suspect.

Unfortunately Earl has timed out by not moving in 15 days. I also sent him a p.m. several days ago which has gone unanswered.

I sincerely wish him the best and hope he gets everything worked out. But unfortunately he is no longer part of the tournament.

Ok no worries Joc.

Well... I'll be the whipping boy I fear, only I don't like being whipped. Unless it's cream.

Remember to look under all the rocks... And around every suspicious looking tree! There be dwarves and elves and such in the forest casting magical trap spells!

I'll need to purchase a bloody notepad to keep check on all the moves and games.

I don't have that on the app. So I'm using a more out dated method of analysis, because if my current games are anything to go by I can't do too well with out writing stuff down.

Click on those 3 dots at the top on the right.  A box opens and game analysis is one of the choices.

use the little arrows at the bottom to go back and forth. You can move both yours and your opponents pieces.

Anyone up for a game please shoot one towards me.

AtlantisRises1, I have a bit of time to kill at the moment as work is very quiet.

I also agree that Saru is the one to beat, however Nuke is very good.

@Pettytalk I have started our two games.

I couldn't accept a draw on our practice game as you had me well beaten. Two moves later you had check-mate!

Edit: Just noticed I fecked up the time bank conditions.

I never used it, nor looked into it. Does it help with suggesting moves to beat the opponent?
