ANNOUNCEMENT: Registration is closed now:
- Total of 30 entrants, therefore we have two groups, A and B. Both will play a full Round Robin. Top 4 from each group will qualify and will be matched with someone in the other group (i.e. A1-B4, A2-B3, B1-A4, B2-A3)
- There will be a new thread for each group, please check both links below (will be ready by midnight EST) and follow the thread about your group starting tomorrow.
- The details will be announced in your group thread. There will be a schedule to help you and us for keeping things organized.


Hello everyone,

This is the registration post for the Event 7B.

Note: YOU CAN REGISTER BOTH 7A AND 7B.

Some information and guideline for registration:

1) The tournament consists of two-stages: Round-Robin (RR) and Knock-out (KO).

2) Event will be IMP, best-hand.

3) RR stage will be either a complete RR or two-group RR (groups based on seeding points). Number of boards per game will be 12 or 16, based on the number of participants. 12 or 16 boards.

4) KO stage will be top-8 players. In case of a complete RR, top 4 will choose from 5-8. In case of a two-group, there will be cross-matching. Each game will be 64 boards, no carry-over is applied.

5) Each player must follow the event post daily (especially in the late RR and KO stage).

6) Each player is expected play around 5-6 matches per week.

7) The tournament committee may exclude players (based on the historical data) who will potentially violate (5) or (6).

8) If a player wants to join the BBO Forum Challenge Event for the first time, we suggest him/her to register for Event 7A, which is a slower pace tournament. But if the player is sure that s/he can follow both (5) and (6), then the tournament committee may take him/her to Event 7B. Using a regular-attendant as a reference may be a good idea for such players.

NOTE: We get a big demand from people who never played a challenge event before. I suggest those guys to register for the other event, 7A. We cannot accommodate all the demand coming from these folks. Here is the link:

9) Full details will be announced after the number of participants is known.

10) Registration deadline: Saturday, March 4, 11AM EST. - CLOSED..

Please write your name and confirm that you can follow both (5) and (6) under this post.

Cheers,
Ovunc
