Thomas Cappleman Or is it just that disappearing from ProRanks counts as inactive?

Zarte Siempre Ah cock... yeah, no - I was using the FOCAL website to remind myself, sorry. Consider yourself mastered.

Tourney round: Apterous Masters 2019: Sign-up Page

Notes from the organizer: The longest running (I think) Apterous tournament is back.

After Thomas Carey took the title for the first time last year, will we get another new name on the roll of honour, or can he or another of our past winners be the one to get the job done?

As always, 24 people have been invited by a reasonable order of criteria, excluding those with inactive accounts, and anyone who has refused an invite the last 2 times they were eligible to be Masters (This year that affects Dylan and Oli)

Depending on how many accept their invitation, a preliminary round or rounds, will occur to allow some talented players not yet meeting the criteria to join them in a battle for glory.

Each round will be longer than the round before, until we see an epic best-of-11 battle for the title.

And for those who don't make it that far, if you can get your way to the quarter finals, whether by skill, or a lucky draw, you'll be guaranteed an invite for next year.

I'll keep sign-ups open for a month, but I hope to see as many of you as possible involved. Good luck!
