    I hate playing "random entry"; you never know what he's gonna move! Plus he's always moving the pawns backward or the Bishops down files or the Queens like Knights, etc. Count me out if that SOB is in!

    Flex,

    I run a pretty mean swiss tourney. I have the software for pairing and the likes. I implore you to join. Would be fun. I have played you in a few games in my day.

    you say in your forum you want quicker rounds .... i implore you: make it zero timeout with a long timebank .... this is the way for quick rounds.

    3 days per move ... 80 move game .... 160 half moves can be a crazy 18 months for one game .

    much better is zero timeout with 30, 40 or 50 day timebank

    30-40-50 timebank? There's no way I'd be in for that.

    Wow! It must be totally humiliating to be forced out from running the "Tournament of Humiliation"!! That's the most humiliating thing I ever heard; you must be totally humiliated. Why, after that humiliation you must be a glutton for humiliation to still join the "Tournament of Humiliation". You're a brave man; I'd be too humiliated!!
