At this moment people can simply let me know they're interested and I'll be sure to send them an email when registration for 4 begins.

It'll probably be quite soon, but first we need to fix how the brackets are set up first. Our interpretation of the Double Elimination format isn't fairly balanced for people who lose a match early. In tournament 2, for example, noodle won five in a row for a place in the final (and would have won overall with a win in either of his last two matches), whereas dorbel (because of an early loss) had to win a total of ten times to gain the crown.

The Double Elimination format is a slightly odd one, but I think we have to use it since we have just one major prize, and instant knockout is a bit brutal after you've made the effort of registering.

Hi Alef,

if there is still room in the bracket, I would like to play in it also.

Just curious -- let's suppose I lose to somebody... I send them a postcard.  And then that person goes on to win the tournament.  Must I send them an additional postcard for winning the tournament?

After consulting the other tournament directors on this issue the concensus seems to be that everyone in the tournament should send the overall winner a card regardless of whether they've already sent them one.

The main point of our little tournaments is that we're playing for postcards rather than ratings or money so it makes sense to not cut back on our "currency". This means everyone  except the overall winner sends three cards: two for losing matches (double elimination) and one to the overall winner.

It looks like I missed the start of this round, but if someone drops out and a seat frees up, please let me know!  I'd love to get in on the action.

Congratulations to amarganth for winning tournament 4! He came back from the second bracket to win twice in the final, beating magic_one who is one of the toughest opponents in our tournaments.

Everyone in that tournament please remember to send him a card. He's planning to put all his cards online, so choose carefully. In a month's time we'll have a draw from those having sent their cards for the free FIBS t-shirt.
