There were some very interesting games in the tournament. I appreciated the chance to play most of the games :-) It's a shame that some were unable to complete the tournament for various reasons. I suspect others could have done better than I. May the next potluck have such a range of games and equally good opponents, that don't run into difficulties off the chessboard. Again, thank you for running the tourney, je ju, I [mostly] enjoyed it [except for when Graeme severely thumped me at the end of the first round... ;-) ] I'll look forward to the next one in some months. je ju wrote on 2009-02-06 UTCJoe Joyce Grand Champion of Pot Luck #1 2008!!!!!! Well done and good luck in future tournaments!!! je ju wrote on 2009-02-05 UTC2008 Pot Luck tournament has come to an end!!!!

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2008-12-08 UTCI reverted them to the backup files, but I was unable to change the permissions on the files. They may need to enter their passwords into the logs page to see the games listed. Joe Joyce wrote on 2008-12-08 UTCFergus, please fix these 2 games that have timed out: Grand Shatranj carlos-joejoyce-2008-303-724 Falcon Chess joejoyce-carlos-2008-303-721 Thanks, Joe Fergus Duniho wrote on 2008-12-08 UTCI just took five days off the time used for any move held up by the period of downtime this weekend. Let me know if any logs need to be fixed due to declaring a winner before I adjusted the time controls. Joe Joyce wrote on 2008-12-08 UTCOkay, we seem to be back. Fergus, could you give carlos carlos some time back in these tourney games? Grand Shatranj carlos-joejoyce-2008-303-724 30' 20' ago Joe Joyce has won. N/A Delete Falcon Chess joejoyce-carlos-2008-303-721 30' 21' ago Joe Joyce has won. N/A Delete He should get at least 50 hours back in each game, if possible. Heh, I admit to hoping he'd run out of time, because he was down to 2 days in Grand Shatranj, and not a lot more in Falcon, but having the entire site down for 4 days was not what I had in mind... Joe je ju wrote on 2008-10-16 UTCNo problem with substitutions...if anyone wants to, leave a comment before Carlos sets up games and the switch can be made. Graeme, thanks for making the chart. carlos carlos wrote on 2008-10-16 UTCNo objection from me, Charles. I will try and get onto assigning these games over the weekend. Charles Daniel wrote on 2008-10-15 UTCIf there is no objection, for the tournament I would like to substitute Asylum Redux for Titan Chess. /play/pbm/play.php?game%3DAsylum+Chess%26settings%3DAsylum+2 I am sure my opponents won't mind because this game is much shorter and easier to play. Graeme wrote on 2008-10-15 UTC Round 1 final table Round 2 initial table je ju wrote on 2008-10-14 UTCBased on rankings current as of the start of the tournament, each group looks like this: Top group, playing for the PotLuck2008 Title! Charles Birds (vs Graeme) Stealth (vs Joe ), Titans (vs Carlos) Joe Atlantean (vs Charles), Grand (vs Carlos), Lemurian (vs Graeme) Carlos Falcon (vs Joe), Hole (vs Graeme), Wormhole (vs. Charles) Graeme Circular(vsCarlos),Modern Courier(vsCharles),Save/Standard (vsJoe) Second Tier, playing for pride and a can of corn*. George Altair (vs Juan ),JacksWitches (vs Jeju),Rococo(vsDonut) Jeju Eight Stone (vs George ),Racing (vs Donut), Wuss II (vs Juan) Donut Hammer (vs Jeju), Korean (vs Juan), Rollerball (vs George) Juan Bachelor (vs Donut), Hostage (vs George),Switching (vs Jeju) *In order to receive the prize, one must appear in person at a designated location, which shall be so designated at the completion of this tournament. If anyone has the talent and time to make this part of the schedule (round two, not the can of corn collection part) into a chart of some sort, as Graeme so ably did last time, that would be appreciated. Carlos will offer to assign the games and get them started when he has time. Once he does that, game on. If you find any time goofs in the game settings, report them to Carlos and he should be able to restart the game. (copied and pasted from 3rd courier tournament page, written by Fergus) Time Controls Game Courier has very versatile and sophisticated time controls, and these will be used to time all games in the tournament. Details on how time controls work can be found in the User's Guide. The same time controls will be used for each game. Here's what I propose to use: Pace: 4 moves per week Spare Time: 14 days Grace Time: 24 hours Extra Time: 8 hours Bonus Time: 6 hours for moving within 24 hours Tie-Breaking If two players attain the same score, ties will be broken by the following methods in a topdown order: Buchholz / Solkoff method (Compares scores of all opponents defeated by tied players.) Sonneborn-Berger (Compares scores of all opponents defeated or tied with tied players.) Number of Wins (Wins count as 1, ties as nothing.) Most Blacks (Whoever has won more games as the second player wins the tie.) Good luck to all! Any problems found in any of the above, let me know. Note to Rich: Based on how long round one took...can't imagine there's any way we'll have this wrapped up in calendar year 2008...at least not the top tier. Rich Hutnik wrote on 2008-10-13 UTCA belated thanks for the update to everyone. Any idea when this event will finish? I have a feeling it is going to run into the 2009 IAGO World Tour schedule. I would want to get the CV site to be on the Tour again, but events do need to wrap up before the following year starts. je ju wrote on 2008-10-13 UTCStandings after round 1: Charles 6 – 0 6 pts Graeme 5 – 0 – 1 5.5 pts Joe Joyce 4 – 1 -1 4.5 pts Carlos 3 – 3 - 0 3 pts George 2 wins – 4 losses 2 pts Jeju 1 – 5 – 0 1 pt Juan 1 – 5 – 0 1 pt Donut 1 - 5 - 0 1 pt New groupings: Winners’ Pot Charles Graeme Joe Carlos Consolation (Losers’) Pot: George 2 pts Jeju 1 pt Juan 1 pt Donut 1 pt je ju wrote on 2008-10-13 UTCPot Luck 2008 round one is in the books...will try to get a schedule for round 2 up soon. Joe Joyce wrote on 2008-05-05 UTCHey, Carlos - you should delete the 2 dead games of Graeme's and mine; they're about to expire on time on his move. Juan and I have made twice as many moves in our untimed game as our timed one, so there shouldn't be any problems with it not being timed. Joe Joyce wrote on 2008-04-27 UTCHi - just got online and saw this comment - no time limits in that game of Atlantean Barroom either, though we are playing it... carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-27 UTCyeah, i think i must have forgotten to enter the tournament field for that one... David Paulowich wrote on 2008-04-27 UTCCarlos, Tournament Filter: [PL*] yields 23 games on the Game Courier Game Logs page - no Atlantean Barroom Shatranj. Graeme wrote on 2008-04-27 UTC Rich, do you mean this match chart? The game-names are linked to the rules and I'll be linking the game-results to the Courier Matches today Carlos, Thanks for re-assigning my games, all appears to be working now. Rich Hutnik wrote on 2008-04-26 UTCWhat is the URL for them being up? carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-26 UTCi think all the first round games are up now, let me know if anything is missing/wrong. carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-25 UTCdone! joe, jeju, juan - please move in the new games. Graeme wrote on 2008-04-25 UTC Carlos, I've created a new ID graemecn and used it to post this message. Can you assign my tournament games to this new ID? Cheers Graeme carlos carlos wrote on 2008-04-25 UTCgraeme, i did enter grayhawke... every time. i don't know why it changed it to grayhawke2. 25 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ Earlier⇩ Earliest⇧Permalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
