This is my favourite defence, the Grunfeld one. Botvinnik used to say that it's the only defence where black has a fantastic play by trying out a risky strategy. Their goal is to destroy the huge white pawn central structure. This MOT will start the 1 st of december.

Re: New MOT
You know, gents, I have to say ... I may be getting my backside kicked around in some (many) of these MOTs, but my game has become significantly improved since I started jumping in on these. It's very educational to go through the openings, and even more so to play against such quality players. Even when I'm getting trounced, I learn something in the process.
 
Thanks for everyone keeping these MOTs going.

Re: New MOT
If it is not too late I would love to play in this MOT! However, I am new to this site and I would like to know more technical details about the way such a tournament works.
Thank you,

Re: New MOT
You just need to challenge every player twice, you must play one game with white and one with black. I will do a crosstable at the end of november to see how many players will participate.
 
Once you know that, you just go to "corres games"
-go to "challenges"
-go to "show advandced options"
-challenge everybody twice (you can state the openings moves as well in the "comments" box)
 
Don't change the time control we always use this one
