    This is going to be a manually set-up tournament, so post in this thread if you want to join.
    Everyone who participates will play a game with the B+N+K vs me. If you want you can play more than 1 game. Also, ask help in how to do it if you don't get it. I'm willing to assist.

    Everyone is allowed to participate, but I'll decide who's the winner based on the rating of the person and how much help has been asked by him/her.

    Special thanks to Ragnorak for the idea, his own tutorial and generating the starting positions. 🙂

    Here's an outside tutorial (according to ragnorak it's better): http://www.chessdryad.com/education/menagerie
    Here's Ragnorak's tutorial: Thread 32573

    You'll regret not taking part in this tournament when you get to this endgame in a real life game.

    Well I certainly need the practice, so count me in.

    and thanks for offering.

    I still struggle even with very basic endgames, so this will be quite a challenge, but certainly good training, so I am in, unless it's a 1 day timeout.

    Time control is 3/14. If you don't think it's enough, contact me and I'll arrange longer time control.

    Since everyone has the same opponent, you can start playing as soon as you're in the tournament. Late-joins are allowed until 1 week after this post.

    Edit: Please go to My Settings --> My Challenge Settings to allow me to challenge you.

    3/14 is fine. I'll go and change my settings now. (Edit: Done.)
