    I am considering joining, however I notice the stipulation that "group size may vary". The last thing I want is to have another situation like the 2005 Championship where, all of a sudden, I have 20 extra games to play. Has anyone tried to accurately figure out what the potential group sizes will be for the tournament, assuming that around 150 - 200 people will participate?

    i assume the group size will be 6 or less. because it says that it will probably be 6 and if there are going to be less that 500 people then the group sizes may be smaller.

    No, it won't be. Doesn't look like it'll get even up to 200 members by the time the sign-ups are done.

    I think the number of groups may vary, but that the max people in one group is 6. If they have 1 player left who doesnt fit in, I think they will create several groups of 5 people.

    hi..i posted a question on a related topic but no one answered but
    here i see posting...it is about the "3 day rule" does this mean that
    if i join a tournament and have to go out of town for 6 days and
    hence do not make a move in each game for more than 3 days that
    i lose all the games..if this is so i can never join a tournament...it
    appears to me that there is no holiday absences allowed or is there
    a tournament type that has a longer than 3 day period that i could
    join ?

    you need to read up on timebank - 3 day move & 7 day timebank means that you can take 10 days for one move, as long as all the others come in at under 3!

    have a look in the FAQ (site map, at the bottom of the page, then FAQ).

    edit: the 7 days timebank can be used in little bits of course!

    You get an e-mail if your tournament starts. Most tournaments will start when they are full..

    But they never start on a weekend: too many people off doing other things. Apparently.
