    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.

    If you appear in the below list then you are eligible.

    I'm in. We should ask Russ if the winner can have a little R.I.P. tombstone in the winners profile.

    For this to be a memorial tournament doesn't someone need to shoot The Plumber first?

    Since this was for the dead-threadm we were hoping everyone would start questioning whether The Plumber was indeed alive. He's entered in the tournament, but being alive is not a requirement.
