Hi all,

This is the 3rd in a new series of tourneys and is for players rated 1199-1302.ANY PLAYERS OVER 1302 AT THE START OF THE TOURNEY WILL BE REMOVED!!!

The new format is 100 players,4/group,3 days/move,2 concurrent games/opponent and 2 to advance from each group,unless there are ties,then all tied players will advance from their group to the next round.I've changed the format to give you all more games to playSmile.

Vacation time IS allowed.

The tourney will start in 2 weeks from the creation date or as soon as we have 100 eligible players,whichever is the sooner.

Also,if any players would like to join either or both of my great groups,Wallyjack's Wonderful Wizards Of Oz and Wallyjack's Premium Members Group,then I'd be delighted to welcome them.Here are the links:-



Good luck with your chessWink,
