I was wondering the same thing.. It was suppose to start like saturday or yesterday. I have this fear that my name will be missed in sign ups:-) I noticed I have my name in there twice but it still could be missed.

Anyone know if it will start soon?

2007 Tournament?

Oh good! That means I am not alone!
:roll:
I read something about the 2006 tournament not finished yet, right? This is the first time I participate in the tournament. Hopefully we won't miss the games!
Anyways, good luck to you guys.

In 2006 tournament ...

... I remember having received email-messages for each game with me to move (=n-1 messages with n=number of players in my group) as soon as the tournament had been started. In simpler words: one message per white game.
So don´t worry that you might miss anything if you have your email-notification marker set to "on".

Hope that helps.

At the very least you'll get an email saying that the match has started, with a list of games in the match and pairings - again assuming email notification is On.

Once the games begin, you will see several new games appear in your game list. In the past, they have had time controls of 60d + 0d. The announcement will be made on the home page, as well. Once the games begin, you can go to the tournament page and do a search for your handle (ctrl-F on Win-doze systems). Follow that match ID to see which games in your list are tournament games.

Greg

Whats the rules for additional time??

I seem to recall from the past that if a certain number of moves was reached a fixed amount of time was added to both players time.

I ask as i'll be beyond move 60 by the end of the week but will be down to about ten days left and i'll be away for about a week then too.

Once you get to 50 moves you can request more time. I normally add 14 days to each side.

Hi,

Can anybody tell me what's the fun of the last game-in-play in 1st round of the 2007 tournament? If this isn't a draw, I'm a goldfish.
I'm not in the 2nd round :cry: , but my son (jasperp) is :lol: I would ask when 2rd round starts, because in August we are three weeks on holiday.

Regards,
Jan Post

Je vous ai écrit en mai 2007 pour vous dire que je jouerai pas le tournoi 2007
Je ne vois par pourquoi je perds mon classement qui était de 2897 sans avoir voulu joué. Perdre des points de cette façon n'est pas la meilleure façon de pénaliser le joueur. Dites-moi si dans le réglement 2006 il était prévu de réinscrire automatiquement les joueurs de la finale 2006 dans le tournoi 2007?
Merci de votre réponse.

Since I don't speak French, I missed your request not to be included. I'll add your rating points back.
