Hey, back with a new tournament. This time things are going to look a little different as we continue with the "less games" approach to the league. We gon' have a fun :)

---Thursday, March 28th, 2008--- Closed Phase Ends
---Sunday, April 1st, 2008--- Final Phase Ends

things to know
The tournament will consist of three phases:
The OPEN PHASE is a single-round-robin with everyone else in the tournament. All colors are ASSIGNED. Check the standings (at the end of the thread) and cross-reference your opponent with your color.
The CLOSED PHASE is also a single-round-robin, but with fewer people (2(√(number of first round players)). Colors will be switched from what you had in the first round.
The FINAL PHASE is a one-game, winner-take-all final, with the higher finisher choosing color.

We've got 14 already, and very few declines. Last tournament was 19 players, and that was a sure increase over the previous ones.

I'd like to see this tournament finish with a player-count somewhere in the 20's...remember to promote the fact that you don't have to play every game, but there's also not as many games available to play, so nobody's gonna run away with it...

i think its cool how reg tourneys have multiple matches. perhaps we could do the best out of three next time around? i would help people size each other up. perhaps more activity?

Sets get too long for the busiest of us to get even a serious attempt in, and you start thinking more than one game at a time - I want epic battles, game by game

The finals will be the third game between those two players, if that's any consolation...

kamoh

Something is up with the colors.

Atul, you played as wrong colors both games, but for some reason I have keegs vs. culturekoi as two whites...

EDIT: COLORS FIXED:

Sounds like what happened to me - my form started collapsing around move 2 (actually a little farther down the road - I feel like I played well against him last night, of course I still lost which is the problem).

i dont know about you guys but i would find it convenient to play games in crunch wrap supreme fashion. How many of you have a cell phone with javascript game support which could play an email based game? basically no time limit. then perhaps a bonus round in which you would play with random chess rules, look it up under bobby fisher. what about bar chess? ya know the game with a 6x6 board with one rook, one bishop, and 6 pawns... anyhow heres to hoping ive inspired someone.
