    If you get time, guys, a basic guide to how tournaments work would
    be good (unles I just can't find it?).

    Anyway, my question is this: in the upcoming New Year tournament,
    currently group size 5, does this mean that I will immediately acquire
    4 new games, 8 new games, or is there some other way of working
    this out?

    Also, in such a long tournament, how should withdrawals be handled -
    does a player wishing to withdraw just have to resign all games?

    Thanks as usual for the good work,
    Moray

    I know that you have will two games with each player in your group.
    but thats all that I know for sure(I have never been in a tournament
    before, but I have looked at there progress)....so in a group size of 5
    you will have 8 games.

    Adam, Per the tournament page "Group size may vary depending on
    number of entrants" So the group could become larger it many more
    join.

    I know....if I am counting right in a group size of
    5 there will be 8 games
    group size 6 = 10 games
    size 7 = 12
    8 = 14
    9 = 16
    10 = 18

    There is no help for the tournaments.

    I will get round to writing one soon.
