You may have noticed the absence of a tourney guide. Unless someone wants to write one, we will have to do without. Most teamleague rules apply, and common sense.
Important: In this tourney, there is no Teamleague (TD) bot automatically setting off your kibitz and NOESCAPE variables; you must personally do this. Even if you do not care about rating points, losing a two-hour game because of a disconnection is quite silly in a team match.
Example: You want noescape in your blitz games on and in your standard games off, while you don't care about it in your atomic games. You can create a simple, apt formula by typing on the command line of your FICS interface, without quotae:
"set formula (blitz and noescape) or (standard and !noescape) or atomic"
In your tourney match request, require noescape be set off by adding "f" which enforces above formula:
"match pchesso 45 45 rated white f"
If you want to know more about formulae, I am afraid you must work your way through the long, dark "help formula" file on FICS. Looking at other people's variables (typing "v Maras", "v seberg" etc.) is another great way to see how formulae work. Once you learned the basic operators (&|=), it is easy. And be bold - you cannot do any harm. You may indefinitely set, unset and reset your own formula.
