kuresu is in . . .under one condition
I'm entering. but only in unrated games.

unless the person has a high enough of a rating so that even winning doesn't lose me points.

we had our own version of chess tournaments at my high school--during the lunch period. there was a whole group of us that always played, and stood around waiting for the chance.

granted, you can't really give hints that easily, unless both sides agreed to it, or until after the fact.

after the fact is fun though--esp. when you point out something incredibly obvious from the outside looking in that they totally missed.

man I miss those good old days (old being 2 years ago)

Tomorrow Last Day to Sign Up
title says it all. granted, considering we have members from across the world, it ain't exactly fair to say that sign up ends 12:00pm mountain time (36 hours from the time stamp on this post).

so, you all have 36 hours remaining. then we just have to pair people up, and the tourney should start by friday.

I'll do 12 hour updates on time remaining. (or try to, at any rate).

oh, and that was a good last game, omni. I should not have gone for your bishop.

Re: 4 hours left . . .
only unrated. i have a rating of 1442ish that I'd like to keep.

we don't care how good you are--if you want to play, that's all that's required.

Re: Tourney Closed . . .
a trad. tourney set up should work. double elimination.

1 winner of A
2

winner of AB

3 winner of B
4
winner of ABCD

5 winner of C
6
winner of CD

7 winner of D
8

9 winner of E
10

winner of EF

11winner of F
12

this would be easier if we had 2 more people who wanted to play. any chance for arach and brenna?

Edited by kuresu, : No reason given.
