    Ok, you might have to search up the opening to get more info.

    As for tie breaks, view Chess.com's tiebreak system under tournament help.

    And lastly, thanks for the suggestion- I might try the Double Muizo in the future.

    I like long and extreme openings. Something about double muzio.

    Is there a way to access (say AFTER each game) those opening moves?

    My idea for the next tournament in the series is either the fired liver defense, or the sodium attack. Please message me for other opening ideas.
