arms. 273 British soldiers are killed or wounded before they

The more material I receive, the more justice I will be able
to do to the tournament players in the writeup.
A FINAL NOTE: Matches are not being specifically timed
(they should be completed in no longer than two hours), rule
disputes may still arise. In the event that I am not around to
rule on disputes, or it happens to be a game I am playing, my
assistant GMs—Ed Welsh and Teddy Lange—will rule on any disputes,
or in extreme cases adjudications of games. Because of this tournament
format, it is in the interest of all players to play as quickly
as reasonably possible. Players deemed intentionally stalling
will be warned twice and if necessary their game adjudicated
taking into account that stalling leading to potential disqualification.
