NY 2020 tournament

What's up brothers and sisters?

I'd like to organize a NY tournament this month somewhere. Up for it?

Set-up options I have:

* clock initial time (up to 60 minutes)
* clock increment (up to 60 seconds)
* duration (up to 360 minutes <- lol)
* time before tournament starts (up to 60 minutes)

Let me know what your preferences are.

Cheers! T.

Here is some more info about the rules and gameplay:

How is the winner decided?
The player(s) with the most points at the conclusion of the tournament's set time limit will be announced winner(s).

When two players have the same number of points, the tournament performance is the tie break.

How does the pairing work?
At the beginning of the tournament, players are paired based on their rating.
As soon as you finish a game, return to the tournament lobby: you will then be paired with a player close to your ranking. This ensures minimum wait time, however you may not face all other players in the tournament.
Play fast and return to the lobby to play more games and win more points.

How does it end?
The tournament has a countdown clock. When it reaches zero, the tournament rankings are frozen, and the winner is announced. Games in progress must be finished, however they don't count for the tournament.

Other important rules
There is a countdown for your first move. Failing to make a move within this time will forfeit the game to your opponent.
Drawing the game within the first 10 moves will earn neither player any points.
