Rounds 5 and 6

Rounds 5 and 6

As we near the business end of the season, a few quick reminders.

Firstly, the Kasparov section only, there are no extensions possible for round 5. This is because round 6 is a position round (1st place plays 2nd place, 3rd vs 4th) and we need to set pairings before the start of that round. All other sections continue as normal, and extensions are possible again in round 6.

Secondly, there are no playoffs this season. Kasparov's position round is basically the same as a playoff, and in the other sections teams will already have played eachother twice, so a playoff seems redundant.

Lastly, much of the world inclunding Europe undergoes the daylight saving change on the weekend of Saturday/Sunday the 28th/29th. Since server time has already changed, this will not affect players in other areas, however those that do see a change to local time should be aware of it. As always, the date command on FICS is your friend, and you can also see the current FICS server time in your game forums.
