New Spanish opening MOT
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.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 with white and ask him to challenge you
once with black. On the "comment" tab,you can state the opening.
 

In that case,the opening will be the highly dynamic
Spanish Opening. The games you
will play will start with the following moves.

1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 f5!?

I hope to get as many registrations as possible before 31st of august 2400 GMT. So far I have registered the following players:
 
Dirtrider
JJStack
Pazuzu
Gladiator
Marius
Sir
Miracleman
Youmayresign
Sasha
KingLear

Greetings and good luck in the forthcoming games.

Gladiator

Re: New Spanish opening MOT
Gladiator, I wonder if you would consider running this event in two sections, with the winners meeting in a playoff. 20 games is an awful lot to take on all-of-a-sudden. What do you other participants think about this?

Re: New Spanish opening MOT
I expect most of the games to be quite short due to the tactical positions generated by this opening . Let's vote.
I will email all the players and we will all vote.

Gladiator:
Can you please take a moment or two to clarify the rules for this contest. Many of these guys have not played before. I take it we are making challenges to each opponent in our bracket as white and accepting a challenges back as black and time is 1200 GMT or 8:00 am on the east coast for US.
thanks

Re: New Spanish opening MOT
Looks like Kinglear has dropped out of the tourney without any reason.

Re: New Spanish opening MOT
Did he send any challenges or make any moves? I would not count kinglear or miracleman out just yet. After all they may be thinking of calendar days instead of GMT time and you did move this tourney up a day or two depending on how you look at it. Steve (Miracleman) said he had to do something but I spoke with him a while ago and I think he is in.
