Candidates Thread

I hope any differences of opinion can be put behind us: JKtheBullfrog is included as a wildcard as a result of overwhelming support for the inclusion this year of a second wildcard.

I hope the Candidates matches can be finished by the end of September or mid-October. In order to accomplish this, I hope Candidates can try to schedule an average of 1-2 matches a week, although it is fine to have none one week and several in another. Please notify in the forum thread the time of your match ideally at least a day in advance so it can be added to the calendar.

Negotiate ITT please.

Is there some table with the results / standings somewhere? A Google Sheets file like last year would be really convenient. Thanks in advance.
