Fi Thorne I can't see how to sign up?

Andy SC

Andy SC @Fi - Since Adam is not an owl license holder, he has to wait for Charlie to accept the tournament.

Fi Thorne

Fi Thorne Thanks :-)

Adam Latchford

Adam Latchford Yep once it's accepted sign ups galore!

Andy SC

Andy SC @Adam - I think Sign-ups would only open on the 1st of April as that's the starting date you've set. However, I could be wrong.

Adam Latchford

Adam Latchford Aye maybe. Would just push tournament back if that's the case by a week or two

Fiona T

Fiona T I like the idea of it being dynamic - so when you hit your rating of the moment you've won :)

Adam Latchford

Adam Latchford Would be a cool idea but first iteration of this will be the ratings as of when the tournament starts - seems less admin whilst I get to grip with tournament admin!

Fi Thorne

Fi Thorne Thanks for organising a tourney which gives the underdogs a chance :-)

Gerry Tynan

Gerry Tynan Is it Pro rank rating or normal rating? There's about a 500 point difference between mine so I'm voting for pro-rank.

Adam Latchford

Adam Latchford Going to be your normal rating for the first iteration of this. I think it makes the scope larger between the lowest rated player and the highest. Things can change in future editions though!

Tourney round: Reach your rating: Round 1 - 9 rounder

Round 2 - gevins delight >>

Notes from the organizer: This is a tournament to reach your rating!

There will be a series of rounds covering many different variants throughout April with a game dropping every two days. Tournament will be awarded to whoever reaches the amount of cumulative points that their rating is at the start of the tournament. Therefore - the better your rating, the harder this will be.

Good luck!
