All contributors to the Dead-Thread, aka "Thread-Killing Champ (May '05)" are invited to participate in a new tournament:
The Plumber Memorial Dead-Thread Swiss Challenge
The tournament will be run as a Swiss System tournament, outside of normal RHP tournament control (I don't think Russ offers a swiss option). I.e. you will be assigned an opponent each round, you and your opponent will create/play the pair of games, and report the results.
Since this tournament is a Swiss system, no one is eliminated. Everyone will be given a match every round. Winner will be the player with the most accumulated points.
Number of rounds will depend on number of players entered. If less than 8 entries then 3 rounds, 9-16 players then 4 rounds, more than 16 players then 5 rounds.
Default time for the games will be 3/7, but if both players agree you may use a different one.
To enter, either PM me, or reply to this thread that you'd like to play.
