    I apologize for pulling the trigger early! Don't fatigue and forum guys.

    I'm afraid there's only room for one grand master champion guy who is good at Chess on this here forum. I look forward to seeing you on the board next time.

    More than likely the schedule will run as follow: Next Monday (7/16) will be registration and Tournament 3 will start the following Monday (7/23).

    So go over to chess.com and register for an account if you haven't already and get in some practice. It'll play much like this Tournament played, with match ups being generated Sunday in the evening with current standings. Matches are considered forfeit until finished, and it will more than likely played to 4 or 5 rounds. This means that the quality of the tournament is directly proportional to your active participation.

    165-turn match. Man. No one has worn me down like Sirrin before, to my memory; I think my longest game on record before this one was 130ish. Congradz, was close.

    EDIT: Will, the honor is mutual.

    I think it's best I'm not in the next tournament. I'm outta here.

    Not bad considering that prior to these DQ tournaments, I hadn't played a game of chess in close to ten years. I think I've managed to scrape off a fair amount of the rust over the course of these tournaments, but I'm still not as good as I was when I was little. Anyway, congratulations on winning the the tournament Varth.


    Edit: I'm totally going to kick your butt next time of course. Wadling's too.
