Hi Wizards,

This is the seventh of a series of tourneys for players rated 1705-1805.My Wizards will get priority invites for this tourney,unfortunately every Wizard in our great group will get an invite because they are automatically sent to everyone in the group,but,don't worry,your particular rating range tourney will appear!

The format is 100 players,1-on-1,1 to advance from each group,unless there is a tie then both players will advance,2 concurrent games/opponent,3 days/move.Vacation time is allowed,but,please,try not to abuse it.ANY PLAYERS OVER 1805 AT THE START OF THE TOURNEY WILL BE REMOVED!!!

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 chess,

    heh Mike - looks like we have a "ringer" ... only played 10 games and already rated 1841 ... can't he be moved up to the next level ?

    And we're full - let's roll!

    @Cubano_53 :  thanks, at least if my few words of Spanish served me well enough to get your meaning.

    @Kaskaron: excuse me?

    Phil,just enter the 1806-1906 tourney as well and stay in this one,then whatever your rating is by the time the tourneys have 100 players you'll be covered,mate.Whichever 1 you aren't eligible for at the start I'll remove you from ,so don't worry,you WILL get a tourney match,mate!Smile

    question: when do we begin, roughly? I'm currently on a nice streak and one point above the threshold, but experience tells me this won't last. Since I assume wallyjack cannot move players between tournaments, a bit of a heads-up would be appreciated, or I might be out of a tourney altogether, which would be a shame.

    Thanks,Jim,I try to make my tourneys interesting for as many players as I can,mateSmile.
