I really like the idea of a “featured” match @EricF , and am curious to know more details! What makes a match “featured”, and how is the weekly featured match settled on?


I’ll pick one based on arbitrary criteria like the previous / current success of the players involved, and if they had been previously Featured.

The intent is to give spectators a quick idea of which matches will be fun to follow.


Do you think you’d want to do write-ups on the matchup pre/postgame, or solicit further discussion / write-ups on the “featured” matchup from others? I think that might be a fun thing.

That or get some of our budding youtube content creators to “record” them post-game w/ commentary?

If anyone else wants to do commentary, recording, or other promotion, that would be great! I don’t have the time to manage or commit to providing detailed commentary, but if someone wants to set up a recording session, I’d be happy to make a phone call and provide input.

i cannot find this game anywhere :confused: @Castanietzsche

I think you need to ask @Shax about that.


@PiHalbe are you available to start? I’ll be traveling on the weekend so I’d appreciate it if we could get some turn in before then.

Sorry, between holidays and a bizarre computer bug I haven’t actually started anything yet. I’ll fix that today.


Then i demand a free win for having already concluded both my matches! :imp:
(i’m jking!)

Slow and steady wins the RACE. Or was it CAWS? I get confused sometimes.

Does this mean matches need to be finished on or before Jan 9th or Jan 10th? I’ve a round 2 match going slowly.

I’m generating pairings on Wednesday morning Pacific time (about noon GMT). Matches that aren’t done by then will be given a result.

is there a way to quickly chek how many out the players have got? thnak u

@Shax we should really get going. Or have you already created the thread and I missed it?

Just thought I would take the opportunity to mention how much I’m enjoying reading other people’s games in this tournament. The level of play is really high, and I’m seeing a lot of variation in the strategies being used - lots of really good games going late with a lot of back and forth!


mdn1111 hasn’t responded or posted, so they are now officially dropped. Anyone paired against them has been given a BYE instead (and it does count as your normal tournament BYE).

@Mooseknuckles and @Shax haven’t started their Round 3 match yet - please message me before Wednesday with why that didn’t happen, or I’ll just call it an adjudicated loss.

I’ll post standings alongside the pairings starting in Round 4.
