All the best,
- The Book Prize Tournament is an all-play-all contest, so with 12 players that makes 11 Rounds.
- Although players will sometimes play consecutive games with the same colour, each player will end up having played at least 4 games as white.
- Each Round should be completed within 3 weeks, but there can be some flexibility.
- The games are to be played online – on lichess.org.
- The time control is 90 minutes each per game.
- The winner (or white if drawn) should notify Peter of the result.
