    Am I allowed to challenge Martin as well?

    Yes, after you lost the crown to @Martin0, you played against @huanglz and won that game. That improved your score so makes you qualified to challenge Martin0 for the crown. The rules are buried in another thread but I'll post them here again:

    Players can challenge the champion with the following conditions:

    a) They must have at least one "level 2" win. This means they have won at least one game against an opponent who also has a win.

    b) If a player previously played the champion but lost, he can challenge the champion only if his score has improved since his game against the champion.

    c) If there are multiple qualifying contenders, the player with the highest score can challenge the champion. If this player is idle (not in a game) and does not challenge the champion within 7 days, then the qualifying contender with the next highest score can challenge the champion.

    d) A tie in score is broken first by judging the scores of player's opponent, and then by the number of games won as Black.

    A champion normally plays White (unless he requests Black), and can choose the game to be played (any of the four Bulldog games). A champion that does not accept a challenge and begins play within two-weeks forfeits the crown.
    Also note that the bulldog champion is allowed a "two-week rest" between championship games, and is allowed to finish any active games before starting a championship-level game.

    So watch the forums - you'll probably be able to play for the crown again soon.happy.png
