She was a phantom of delight
When first she gleamed upon my sight;
A lovely Apparition sent
To be a moment's ornament;
Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair;
Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair;
But all things else about her drawn
From May-time and the cheerful Dawn;
A dancing Shape, and Image gay,
To haunt, to startle, and way-lay. - William Wordsworth

Diane has resigned from Mini-Matches and has been replaced by gogogiz.  Thanks to diane for what she has done here, and welcome to gogogiz!   :)

In one week, the time will change for "Mini-Matches" to an hour later to go along with daylight savings time.  "Mini-Matches", next Saturday, registration at 1500 UTC. Play begins at 1520 UTC.  I find this clock more accurate than Fibs:  http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/full.html and this is the one I use.   ;)

If it is going to be an hour later - surely you mean it will be registration at 1600 UTC, with play starting at 1620 - best check that clock you use  ;)

Sorry, I was unclear about the time change going into effect.  We will play at same time next Saturday, 18 Dec 04, 1500 for registration and 1520 for play, as advertised.  The following Saturday, 25 Dec 04, Xmas Day, Mini's will open for registration at 1600, and 1620 for play.

Hi there

Could you please tell me how the points are distributed in each mini-matches tourney?

I have seen some where it is: 12,8,4,4  ^_^
and other where it is: 14,10,8,6...  :o

So, I do not know how the prices are given  :P  :blink:

Anyhow, it is not too important. I just want to understand.

Take care  :bye:

In each tourney, points will be rewarded like this (16 players bracket): Winner:12 points, second place finalist, 8 points, and other players will get 2 points for each win.

In 17-32 players bracket, Winner:  14 points, second place finalist 10 points, and other players will get 2 points for each win.

No 2 points award for forfeits.
