    any way - it is a good thing ๐Ÿ™‚

    since its groupings of two, do non-subscribers have to have four game slots available or can they be allowed to go over the 6 game limit just for this?

    Presumably the only ones who would think or try to look are either regular forum goers who see the message or newcomers who don't know it's actually such a novelty. A lot could have given up waiting for one.

    Ah. Yes, that makes sense... Just thought they would disallow provisional players entry if they're trying to induce subscribers.

    That's actually my case. I check the forums from time to time, but not often enough to avoid missing this tournement. And after a while in the site, I gave up checking the tournaments page quite a while ago.

    Have a lot of fun!!

    strange thought, if a non-sub became a sub during the tournament would they then be eliminated๐Ÿ™„.?

    Hey all,

    I recently joined this site and wanted to try a tourney before subscribing. Low and behold, I found the mentioned tournament. I have now signed up for the site, and have currently one W and one L after the first round.

    So yeah, lol, it works. And no, to the best of my knowledge I haven't been elminated because of signing up for the site ๐Ÿ˜€

    When you get down to 6 [icluding the 2 tournament games] you can't go over 6 again. So really the tournament games are just two of your regular 6 - except you can't specify who ,where ,when, etc etc. ๐Ÿ™
