I have decided to drop out of Guido's and Sedat's competitive opening book tours. I am looking to get back into what I have more fun doing, testing opening books. My opening book tests will be fair and unbiased. Games from each round will be posted for public download, and results will always be posted in full detail.
I will be running two opening book tests:
1/0 Opening Book Tour and 3/0 Opening Book Tour
These opening book tests will take place on my free forum found here. Of course you are under no obligation to join my site, I will post the results here on this great forum as well.
If you are interested in having your opening book tested and compete in either one, or both of my tours please let me know by email ~~~> Italian81@gmail.com
Private books will stay private, and public books will be shared with all. There will be incentives on winning each tour and awards will be given out for the top one to three books in each division.
I am open to suggestions for making these tournaments as fun and exciting as possible, and I value your feedback.
I will also be in contact with XsupremeX, as I would like to work with him to provide accurate results from two different opening book testers throughout the process. Supreme is very well liked and respected in the chess community, and I feel we can both collaborate to make this a tremendously enjoyable tournament.
As of right now, I have no opening books to test, until I receive emails from those interested in competing.
I will give more information on the tours and awards that will be given, once everything is set up.
