Hi all,

I thought that I'd have a change and put on a series of chess960 tourneys.

The format is 64/100 players,4/group/3 days/move/2 concurrent games/opponent/2 to advance from each group,unless there are ties and,then,ALL tied players will advance to the next round.ANY PLAYER(S) OVER 1499 AT THE START OF THE TOURNEY WILL BE REMOVED AND WILL BE INVITED TO THE NEXT APPROPRIATE TOURNEY FOR THEIR NEW RATING.

Good luck,everyone,and,please,enjoy yourselves,

    This sounds awesome, wallyjack, looking forward to it :)

    Just a note, though: your message says 2 concurrent games, but the way it's set up, it'll actually be 6 concurrent games. I'm fine either way, just an FYI.

    I just wonder how one goes about studying 960 chess....I mean there can't be many openning books out there
