Re: Jordaens Visual Arts

I was under the impression Jason Asher already asked you to waitlist the two of us (initially as a team) - but in case he did not, we are interested in playing if you are assigning free agents to teams. Thanks.

Re: It's Lit

My tier is pretty low but I can net you some clutch buzzes, consider me when your first choice partner gets rejected.

Re: PSA: Mohammed Reza Shah is not "Reza Shah"

I would disagree with the idea that prompting on Murakami at the college level (at least above ACF Fall) defies common sense - Murakami Ryu is definitely askable (at least as a bonus part) above ACF Fall, and he's probably tossupable at high levels. Similarly, accepting Tokugawa alone is rational u...

Re: PSA: Mohammed Reza Shah is not "Reza Shah"

I understand we're veering off the original topic, but regarding Japanese names, I think its a bit lax to err completely on the side of prompting any negligible part of a name. Even when "uniquely" identifying within the context of their particular field (e.g. literature translated in English), prom...

Re: CO 2017 Team Formation

Nothing will deter me from playing CO. Despite what preconceived notions some people or editors may have, my questions are not as terrible as they used to be. I smell nice and and I'm fun to be around. If you're lucky there will be snacks. Thanks for your consideration.

Re: Chicago Open 2016 - July 23-24

Because more than 17 teams have expressed interest in playing CO, we'd like to do another poll. It is possible that U Chicago will grant us additional rooms and therefore let us expand the field. However, this will require us to abandon the full round robin and switch to a bracketed system. Matt Ja...

Re: Samuel L. Bronkowitz presents Chicago Open (07/18-19/15)

Hey, I quite liked this set. Point of no interest - my statline in the last match is actually the one that was assigned to Athena. I don't know if we just got swapped or if there are other mistakes. Attention must be paid! Sorry if I screwed that up. (If I remember correctly, your match's scoreshee...

Re: Samuel L. Bronkowitz presents Chicago Open (07/18-19/15)

Gaurav has almost certainly dropped from my team - we now need a fourth. If you are interested in playing with us and will be in Chicago next weekend, email me at fostermhughes@gmail.com. Please note "expressing interest" with a forum post is not a satisfactory means of communicating you want to pla...

Re: 2015 CO Visual Arts

I'm glad that you're willing to reconsider, but for what its worth, I'm not at all satisfied by your initial resolution. I didn't realize I needed any more qualification than "I want to play this" to express my interest - the language is pretty clear, I'm attending CO proper, my packet has been sub...

Re: 2015 CO Visual Arts

The field will stay at 16 because I want to write 9 packets and don't want to burn a round on odd numbered brackets. The waitlist will be people who have unequivocally signed up to play this, and then people who expressed interest but have done little to follow up with me personally, post in this t...

Re: 2015 CO Visual Arts

Okay, the field is now closed. If anyone wants to drop out, please let me and Athena know so she can take your spot. The format is the same as before, with two brackets doing a round robin in the prelims and a final. Ties in records will be broken either on a half or full packet (depending on how m...

Re: RILKE: Chicago Open Literature Singles 2015

Please put me on the waitlist. Also, respectfully, and despite my own misgivings about the format from playing Gorilla Lit last year, there is no reason to prohibitively cap the field, since you are already weighting the performance of players across rooms so heavily. You can accommodate almost all ...

Re: Chicago Open Discussion

At this point, I don't really need to add anything to the din of groaning at that tossup on cooking spaghetti, which to me stinks of being written expressly to piss people off in an attempt to discredit Murakami Haruki as a writer and stir up more animosity about Japanese lit as a sub-distribution, ...

Re: Chicago Open matchmaking thread

Charlie Rosenthal and I both still want to play, but we've decided to dissolve ourselves in some combination to shorthanded teams. Neither of us have much preference for where we go, so if you're interested in having us play for you, let us know.

Re: Chicago Open matchmaking thread

I'm interested in playing this. I'll likely net you no points at all, so I'd encourage you not to pick me if you're interested in winning, but I'll try to be a fun person to be around or something. All I know really well is Japanese stuff, and some lit and myth, I guess. I have a lot of free time to...
