This is a knockout tournament. Because players in knockout tournaments can only play one game at a time there are cartain restrictions placed on the games. If there is no activity in one of this tournament's games for 2 weeks then the player whose turn it is to move will lose the game and be knocked out of the tournament, even if they are on vacation.

Hot Tip: Smothered Mate


One of my most favourite mates is the smothered mate.

This is done by getting a rook or queen to the last rank before the opponent has moved his/her pawns.

The complacent player often falls for this when miles ahead so this attack is particularly good to know...
