  • They accepted, so don't forget to join the team. Finally, we do have another VC game.

  • Done. The VC presets only go as far as 3. d4, but that should do. I hope that V3 finally wil include flexible starting positions.

  • People will be on vacation (including me), I don't expect much contribution neither on our nor on the opponents' side.
