Re: Tournament manager for winboard?

The second point seems hard to fix in the TM, as this is really a WinBoard limitation. WinBoard supports a match mode where it plays every line in a PGN file of opening lines twice (by setting /lgi=-2 ), but it does not have a similar option when the lines do not come from a game file, but from the...
