There is still time to join up. Looks like there is some confusion on the timing. The US is already on DLS so it'll actually start at 4pm. There's a good many people on the server now.

Heh. Thanks, Andres.

Apparently HG, unlike Olivier, does not need to be bribed to get really good pairings. :D

Myrddin will never place above Tornado in any tournament ever again.

yes, cg John, Myrddin had a lot of luck and Tornado was unlucky this time.

one of the games that Tornado (6 threads !) had against WaDuuttie (single) won position, after a blunder (b6?) it losed this game :-/

indeed, the pairings was a little bit strange for me too !
