To the winner of this tourney goes the life time achievement award in chess. The only tournament that isn't won by besting your opponents skills, but merely out living your opponents. Here's to another grand twenty-eight years everyone. Frozen molasses moves quicker... Welcome to chess purgatory!!! Egad!!! Gadzooks!!! Fuddlebugs!!! This is bullsnot I tell you, bullsnot!!! AUGH!!! P.S. Mid-Year tournament refers to, "Middle of next year," and has nothing to do with the fact it started in July. B(
Why such tournaments with a large number of participants are arranged only for non-subscribers? Yesterday I specifically wanted to cancel my subscription to sign up here, but in the end I changed my mind. Play in such large tournaments is much more interesting than in small octets and duels.
