It’s time to get this thing started soon: various of the chess bloggers will have a tournament on FICS (getting an account is free; I’d also recommend downloading BabasChess to make your life easier). So far, the following people have expressed interest:
LiquidEggProduct – Donnie
Rhuiden – Tom
ppwchess – Polly
RLP – Robert (Wahrheit)
TheDarkKnightTwo – l3rucewayne
gorckat – gorckat
NoTB – Tacticus Maximus
RockyRook – Rocky Rook
If you want to join, comment on this post (with your FICS handle) by end of day Wednesday. If I’ve mistakenly added your name, let me know, too.
The tournament will be one non-blitz game a week, round robin format. The time control is not settled; I did like the G/15 with 30 second increment per move, but add your suggestions here.
Much thanks to Wahrheit for getting the ball rolling on this.
