An account where exactly?

Thanks,

You could have logged on as guest under any name, to ask me to make the account. As itwas I only received the registration e-mail 9:15 pm, when the tourney was already under way. Sorry about that. As I got home only 10min before the tourney started, I did not look here until now.

That's OK. I did login as a guest for a while and even joined a tourney that seemed to be yours, but I couldn't see anything happening, so figured I wasn't really in (that you had to be registered to participate).

Indeed, the tourney manager ignore attempts of unregistered players to join. This is because one stepin the process of joining is requesting the player rating, to see if it fits the tourney requirement. And for an unregistered player this does not produce the expected reply, which then breaks the chain of events.

Congrats everyone! At least got to watch some games, and found it to be a fun little tourney with a good mix of engines.

Question: What do the +/-s in front of the names indicate? They don't seem to correlate with the performance vs rating.

WaDuuttie achieved an acceptable score this time because in the last round in this position
[d]8/5p2/p4Pk1/6P1/1p2K2P/1P6/3p4/2bN4 b - - 0 56
ArasanX played Ba3 and to my surpise resigned ! WaDuuttie thinks he is only slightly better and certainly not winning yet ... so what did ArasanX see ?

Crafty says +2.0, but that's hardly "designable" to me...
