MOT 3 French opening winawer variation. Announcement and future games.
Hello, all
 
Soon, I am planning to start a new MOT. Each player needs
to play 2 games against each other in this tournament. I
wish to state that the time limit will be a typical one
for corres games, you don't have to change it.It will be 20/30, meaning 20 moves in 30 days.
 
To challenge someone, go to "corr games", one of the tabs of the main
screen.
 
Select "challenges".
 
Select "show advanced options".
 
You can issue a challenge by typing the name of
your opponent.
 
The speed remains the same.Challenge your opponent twice,
once with black, once with white. On the "comment" tab,you
can state the opening .
 
In that case,the opening will be the highly controversial
Winawer variation of the French defence. The games you
will play will all start with the following moves.
 
1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 Bb4 4 e5 c5 5 a3 Bc3 6 bc3 Ne7.
 
I hope to get as many registrations as possible before
sunday night 2400 GMT as AdminBrian will post this
message to all Caissa members afterwards.
 
Greetings and good luck in the forthcoming games.

This sounds good, but one question.
 
I am to play 2 games against every other player in the tournament?
 
So if there are 20 players, in addition to me, I am playing 40 correspondence games?

Re: MOT 3 French opening winawer variation. Announcement and future games.
I don't know what MCO recommends as white's 7th move in the Winawer, but I think Nf3 is best leading to:
 
 
7..... Nc6
8. Be2 Qa5
9. Bd2 Ne7
10. O-O c4
11. Ng5 h3

Please,Wiz you are not the TD. I run this tournament.
 
Glad -- just a friendly reminder that a Member Organized Tournament is a collaborative effort among all members in the tournament. If there is any disagreement, then the correct procedure would be to ask the members what they want to do and try to form some kind of consensus.

I am not worried by having 30 or 40 games to play. I am also happy to leave all the decisions to the TD.

Re: MOT 3 French opening winawer variation. Announcement and future games.
First click game results. Then , select a game by clicking , details. Cut or copy the game ID number. Now you are ready to post, so click..reply to this post. Next click " insert game", [a blue box on the right]. In the box which comes up, it says..insert a game...click it.The next box has "fetch a game"..click it. Paste the ID number into the space, then click fetch. Then click insert the game. ITS a lot easier than i described it !

Re: MOT 3 French opening winawer variation. Announcement and future games.
Many thanks. This will be now the standard way of posting games. I tried to email you but your email address is not valid. Any ideas why? Also I would like you to define the next MOT theme as your style is quite spectacular. I have no doubt your choice will be as well.
 
From now on if you don't mind I will post your games as well. I always have an eye on this site, on holidays until tuesday.

Re: MOT 3 French opening winawer variation. Announcement and future games.
I don't mind at all for you to post the games. As for the email; this is the story. There was a time when I was not happy with grevillea as a handle, so at the last renewal, I reverted back to my former handle of likelymoor. I did this on the old caissa site and then discovered that I could not do the same on the new caissa. So, I have two handles,but only one email , which is likelymoor@caissa.com. Using that address, your message will turn up in my message box for grevillea on the new caissa. Are you sure you really want me to pick the next theme. I'm happy to do it. But you have more faith in my ability than I do !
