8th Annual ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

Post by CRoberson » Mon May 12, 2014 5:09 am

We are deciding on the date. Anybody wishing to enter may let me know their availability for the event.

Here are the options. Let me know yes, no, maybe for each date. The no's are important - they let us know how many would be blocked out by certain choices. Basically using constraint satisfaction to resolve the date instead of simple voting for favorite date.

June 7/8
June 14/15
June 21/22
July 12/13
July 19/20
July 26/27

I don't see any that conflict for me. The critical week for me starts with June 30, my 46th anniversary through July 4 weekend. You missed both of those...

The tournament page is here: http://aigames.net/ACCA/ACCAWCRCC/2014A ... WCRCC.html

Register soon and get a temp ICC account (if needed) to test and prep for the tournament.

I will play assuming we can get our hardware issues straightened out in time. We have some issues with cluster support and since I always use a cluster node to participate, until that is fixed I can't guarantee any hardware.
