    I've already posted this in the tournament forum, but for some added exposure, I felt it might be good to post it here too.

    Anyways, I'm looking to start a tournament for non members. I'll organize it from my desk, starting with a draw for who plays who. It will be a 1 match elimination tournament with random colours. A drawn game will be played again with the colours swiched. Time controls will be 3 and 7. When everyone is ready to start, I'll message each player, telling them who they are to play. They will then start a game with their assigned opponent. Players should note that it is important to always keep a spot or two open for tournament games. Let's see how this goes.

    To join, PM me. I will accept the first 15 Messages I receive.

    there's one going on right now. It's nice because the site allows you to go over 6 because it's a tournament, but I think it's going to be hard getting everyone to cut down to 4 games before it starts. Sometimes it takes weeks for games to end... they just drag. I'll play though

    I'm not sure whether I want to win or not lol. If I do it'll look bad, on the other hand, do I really care?

    OH well, I'm not gonna win anyways.
