In this case I might join. I'm not sure yet as it is (as usual) a busy weekend for me.

I had not decided yet, but doing the same as last time (5+1) seems to make sense. If there are few participants, we could do 9+1, and only 5 rounds.

under 5 rounds is not enough to find the blitz king, i prefer for min. 7 rounds
in this case i will playing too.

but i will do on next day by my self playing a rapidchess tourney, next weekend at 15th i am playing for my team, next weekend at 21th/22th will playing on CCT 11, every weekend is action this month.

and i am very busy with the improvements of Tornado (8x8 chess) at the moment.

best wishes,

Would-be participants, please report in this thread.
I expect to be there, but my weekends are always very unpredictable, and I won't know for sure until the last minute whether I'll be able to make it.

OK, I have brought up the server for the tourney. The IP address still is:

80.100.28.169

Joker and micro-Max are already on line, and can be used for testing. Report any problems in logging in here, I will keep an eye on this thread.

Unfortunately I got myself a violin today, and will be busy playing violin rather than computer chess tonight.

And by the way, in case somebody wonders: No, I didn't have a violin before. What you see in my picture is not a violin, but a viola. :)

Have fun, everyone! I hope to join you in the April tournament.

I would like to operate TwistedLogic, I haven't spoken with Edsel about this, but I am sure he is willing to let me operate.

I am the operator for CCT and would like to test my book out with TL.
