This tournament is the BOMB!

(there's an odd number of players so I don't have an opponent and I'm watching Mad Max Fury Road)

and then in the final round, I got another bye, so I managed to get through a whole tournament without playing a game.

I did get 1 point for the bye, so that's cool.

Since we're currently in the chess AFL and the club match, and with lockdown seemly easing, I'm planning to can the Wednesday tournaments.

Let me know what you think - I'm happy to arrange if there is demand!

I wonder if there is room for an arena style tournament that is open for a few hours and people can come in and out and play games when they are free?

Great idea, let me investigate tournament options and I’ll stick a new thread up today.
