MOT: Albin Counter Gambit
As proposed by Azathoth, the Albin Countergambit 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5
 
MOT starts September 9th.
 
Registration is open until noon on the 8th. I will generate the cross tables at that time or, if there are enough players, I will create two pools of difficulty, and create tables at that point. The following rules apply:
 
1. Two games per matching, one as black and one as white.
2. White must make the challenge.
3. No more than 7 players per pool (coming to 12 games per player).
4. Grim automatically wins all pairings against Blue.
5. Rule 4 is invalid.
6. There is no Rule #6.
7. Be nice.
8. The MOT organizer gets to add rules at his leisure.
 
Thus far, only the following players have registered for the Albin:
Spud
TrencherKnight
Kingsfull
Blue
Zugzwanger
Grim
 
Curiously missing is Azathoth, who suggested this opening in the first place.
 
Registration is open for another 24 hours or so ... hurry up and put your name in!

Re: MOT: Albin Counter Gambit
I would like to play but would have to delay the start as I will be out of touch until mid-September (15th).

Given the absolute flood of members asking to be part of the Tourney, I think I'd be able to delay the start ...

Re: MOT: Albin Counter Gambit
I meant just for me, of course. I wouldn't be able to accept or make challenges until the 15th.

Count me in, and maybe folks are shying away because they think it's the Al Bin Laden Countergambit.
