 Welcome to my fourth open tournament! Anyone can play in this tournament, regardless of rating, move speed, etc. The only exceptions are that you must have played at least 5 rated games to join, and have a timeout percentage of less than 50%. This is contrary to my past open tournaments, where everyone with no exceptions was allowed to play, but due to the excessive amount of timeouts in the past we have this rule now. Tongue Out


 This tournament will have groups of 7, with top 2 in each group advancing to the next round. You will have 5 days to move, but no vacation time is allowed, so be careful not to time out! Wink


As in all of my tournaments, top finishers will be invited to the Winner's Championship, a special, invitation-only event for the best players of my tournaments. Message me for more information! Cool
