October G/90; d5

Hi Chess players,

 

I will be directing (Jack) a G/90; d5 in Oct. This tournament will be a four round tournament. I will allow two byes for the tournament. There will be no byes for the final round. If you need a bye, please let me know before the pairings of the next round. Pairings will be done and sent out the following Wednesday, after the conclusion of a round.

If you would like to sign up before October third, you can send an E-mail to me (Jack) at Jfulsom@charter.net. Please make sure when E-mailing with your intentions to play you send your information to me and not to Matt. As it gets real confusing for us TD’s and keeping entries straight.

 

Thank you, and I will see you in October.

Jack
