somewhere on the website it says that entering tournaments will greatly increase your number of games played. if i enter the 2009 tournament how often will i be required to move and how many games will i concurrently be playing?

You'll get 18 games and have 60 days to complete all of them.

Originally posted by hovercraft2x how many games do i play at the same time? I'm assuming in each group i'll have 9 opponents and i play each one twice?

I thought that timeouts are automatic wins (losses) in tournaments, with no action required by the player. Is this true? If not, what prevents a tournament from being held up indefinitely by a player who refuses to take a skull?
