    Hi

    What do you think about the hardcore style tournament (0 days per move, 21 days timebank) with fewer players, e.g. 11 instead of 21 ?

    40 hardcore games is too much for me but 20 looks possible...

    The advantage of the hardcore tournaments is the guys with 1000+ ongoing games can't slow down the tournaments moving always at the last minute of their time for move...

    What's your opinion ?

    Cheers

    I'm just finishing my first one now and I regret having entered it. In the end I got nothing out of it. Too many games. Not enough sleep.

    Yeah, you seem right.
    For me, a 21 players 21 days hardcore is simply impossible.

    So why I propose to have smaller groups.
    Maybe octets.
    Or bigger timebank.
