    Pregnant? Contemplating Fatherhood? In that case you will have time to spare as its no more nights down the local having a few beers. So spend those hours productively in the "Great Birth" tournament, and win yourself a fine best seller from Australia — "Having a Great Birth in Australia." See: http://www.acmi.org.au/greatbirth

    Have fun!

    My girlfriend is expecting and this book would really come in handy. Except I can't join the tournament to win it.

    I guess you only have one option then, Xanthos, eh? Its a pity. I'm sure it would have been a lovely baby.

    I don't think either one of us can actually give birth...
    Strange, by the way, no one rated higher than 1495 has entered the tournament (so far). Let's keep it like that!!

    Ah, now I did. That explaines why XanthosNZ was not able to join in too.
    I only looked at the entry page itself; it does not mention any rating limits up there (which is strange really, anything else of importance is mentioned...).

    Uhm.... Maybe you should be friends with TRACKHEAD21, maybe he will give his copy to you as soon as he wins, since he entered the tournament... Sigh...

    This doesn't ring any bells???
    "Sorry, you are not eligible to enter this tournament.
    This tournament is restricted to people with a maximum rating in the last 30 days between 0 and 1500"

    Picture BOLD writing.

    sorry all I left the tourney, didnt realize it was rating limited. Was wondering why the highest player was 1400 something. Now Im only in the other 2 open tournamets including my favorite all vs all tournament, think i've won 3 or 4 of those type. :-)
