    Nice to see some variety in the tournaments - something different from the Octets, Threesomes & Duels. This one looks like a cracker.

    "WARNING : Entry will result in up to 82 concurrent games."

    So that's 82 games at a 1/14 time control?

    😲

    I'll watch...

    ...but 82 games at 1/14 won't help your game load one bit.

    My point entirely. He should stick to 21-day games if he's trying to play so many.

    You've proven that quite well.

    Just stick to chess rather than commenting in here, it is obviously what you are best at.

    I have a great many 21 dayers, but a few frantic 'Blitz' games will be fun, and there is that 14 day timebank in case I go crazy!
