    Tournament 1677

    Since most of you don't read the tournament forum, I thought I would post this here.

    But of course. All subscribers are encouraged to join*.


    *That would be me encouraging them to join. Technically all subscribers are eligible but I have no idea what Russ' official position is.

    What is the big deal with that? Im not trying to be smart, but I just subscribed. Is it something important? Does it give a big load, b/c I don;t want to go over the edge.

    It is the RHP yearly championship... I don't know how it could get any bigger without leaving the site.

    Game load depends on number of entrants. Take a look at the 2006 championship Tournament 941 for an idea what that may be.

    That thing's huge!!
    I have 3 games in progress, and am in a pending Xmas tournament...Do you think I would get + 20 games at once if I played in that?

    Well, if group size is 9, that means you'll get 16 more games by playing in that tournament.

    For someone rated as low as me, it's an exercise in futility.

    You never know, you might play someone who reaches the last round.

    i was in the same position last year, i entered it and had waaaaay to many games from it, i would advise on not entering it you're not used to the extra games.

    i'm thinking of entering it for that reason. all the game against people who i don't want to play i'll just resign at the start.

    oooh, woopee. I get to smell the glove of the guy who might get his ass kicked by the eventual winner. (appologies for the sarcasm)

    or you can play the role of spoiler. Personally, I'm hoping that I reach round two again (then I get to play spoiler).
