    Did anyone here enter the Gothic Chess College Scholarship Tournament?
    (http://www.gothicchess.com/scholarship.html)

    It's supposed to be starting on Friday on the ICC site (www.chessclub.com) but I can't find any mention of it there.

    I don't think it's even possible to play gothic on icc. at least there isn't a choice for it in the seek game dialog nor any mention in the help files.

    I think the whole thing sounds fishy. there's a lot of money being waved around, and the dude who was spamming about gothic about a year ago, couldn't give any convincing proof that things he claimed were actually happening. in fact, a lot of what he said seemed quite unconvincing.

    Must be a professionally run tourny. Afterall, it's tournament director is Alexis, a stunning 6'4 model who, according to her bio, only recently discovered the origins of chess and how the pieces moved. *rolls eyes*

    For anyone who missed it the first time round, here is the original thread about Gothic Chess, started when the Fischer vs Karpov match was announced: Thread 54078.
