Okay folks, I am planning to start a Speedball event for the weekend (and maybe Monday). I will try to private message people (I know of) in BBO.

The format will simple KO with random draw - there may be two-survivor three-way games in the first round. Each match will be 16-board IMP best-hand (3-way will be 8-board against each opponent) until the semi-final. Semi-final and final will be 2 x 12 boards. I strongly encourage people who can login multiple times per day and play quick:) It is mainly for fun at this point.

You can register through here (or leave me a private message in BBO) until Saturday 11am EST (NYC time). I will have the pairings if I have more than 6 players.

Cheers,
Ovunc

p.s. I will be happy if someone can help in this and maybe make a new post for this.

Okay - I assume we will have a round-robin: 12 boards each match, best hand, IMP.
Please post results here.

It was fun! 3 continents, different time zones, but we finished the tournament in less than 12 hours - hope we can do a similar event in another weekend :)
Cheers all!
