Sorry it took me a while to get round to it, but I've invited everyone from the last tournament to a new one. I'll give everyone a couple of days so everyone who wants to accept can; then I'll start. Let me know here if any new players want an invite!

Chess Time
Well folks its that time again! Announcing the third annual EvC Chess Open.
Anyone interested sign up here and we can work out the pairings once we have a field.

Re: Chess Time
Funny how we always start these after you and I have been practicing for a while...
Funnier yet how I never do very well
I'm J0NLEE on the chess.com site. And I'm in!

Love your enemies!

I've been doing AARP crossword puzzles, so I'm ready.

Re: Link To Tournament
Did you set any limits on who can join the tournament?
There's someone named 'slupsk' and I can't imagine they are a member here...

Tournament is close to starting
I'd like to get at least 4 more of you so that we have an even field.

Frako, you in?
That seems unlikely given how many we had for the last tournament... and the one before. The only other member I can see joining is frako; fearandloathing hasn't been on in a long time and probably isn't reading this thread.
Of course if you wait long enough, I'm sure you'll get plenty of non-members joining up...

Tournament Is Starting
The tournament is starting. 6 is an even number. I doubt I'll make it past the first round, but I'll certainly give it the old college try!

The Next Round
Looks like the next round is going.
Good thing I'm not white this one or I'd be close to timing out.
Speaking of which, don't forget to take your turn, Mr Chimp!

Love your enemies!

Questions
I'm confused.
I thought my round with caffeine finished at Omni 1.5 Caffeine 0.5 games.
Caffeine launched the first game, and I responded with an opposite color challenge. I won the first, and played for a draw in the second, sine that was all I needed to win the match-up.
We played a third game which I thought was casual, and I played it that way. Lost, too
So is it that I didn't start the second game correctly through the tournament structure? If so, okay, my bad. I wish I'd known before we started the third, however.
Is this to be another 2-game round? I have a challenge from caffeine playing white. Should I send a challenge now with me playing white?
How do I do that officially, so it counts?

Re: Questions
Just go into the tournament (Play>Tournaments>EvC tournament). You'll find the list of games there. Go into yours and start playing.
The site starts the games for you automatically. There's no need to send any challenges.
Edit: Here's the game you should be playing now:
Chess: Kriticek vs Omnivorous - Chess.com
