is also quite a longterm affair - i think many of the original participants will have died of natural causes before this tournament ends. (2 rounds in two years and 6 more rounds to go!)
you are right ... Tournament 804
has potential to last very well ... with a conservative estimate: two weeks per move and 40 moves per round is 80 weeks per round ... 6 rounds gives ... easily ten years total if a strong player takes their thinking time!!!!
