     I have now finished 6/8 games and I won them all. It looks like I will be losing one game and winning the other to get a total score of 7/8.

    I am already pretty sure that I will be advancing to round 2. I already have 5 easily won games, two games with a slight advantage, and 1 game that will be decided by all-out tactics. Laughing

    Wow, one whole year...Surprised that's more than enough time to register. Nonetheless, I agree with Pashaura1, reducing the moves to one a day would be more apropriate.Laughing Otherwise, this tournament could take a decade to finish....Tongue outlol

    Most players don't use all their time allocation and I think one move per day would force you to log on each day which doesn't suit everyone...

    I think it would appropriate to reduce the moves to a day..instead of 3 days...otherwise i may not live to see the end of this match...lol, whatever good luck to everyone..

    On one hand, I'll have to wait a full year before I can play a single move.  Cry

    On the other hand, I really love the Semi Slav.  Smile

    All right, I'm registering.
