Thanks for keeping this going.

One question: Which pace do you plan for the event (in boards / week approximately)?

I am in if we go with a regular to slow tempo (need to graduate, move to my new school etc.).

Small announcement: It was nice to organize events here in BBO Forum. However, some people were not helpful (some disrespect the efforts of putting two pretty high quality tournaments together, some just did not read/follow things), therefore I decided to step back.

It is summer time and people probably will not be able to play in a high tempo (because of vacations etc.). However, I will get back in September with an invitational premium event.

I will be inviting the regulars of our past tournaments and think of our classic RR+KO format.

See you after Summer!

Is 64 boards per 1.5 week slow enough?
