We are off to a good start. Pairings are up and most games are started. A couple of reminders for players and everyone else:

  1. For players - as in the last online tournament, we can use the following rule concerning reference books (Rule 2 Conduct, esp.) http://chessbymail.com/rules.htm
  2. For everyone - looking at games in progress is exciting. However please refrain from kibitzing with players. We want to keep this tournament a good clean fight!
