The next Sunday, 4 December 2016, is the Deadline Event for Round 10 and a Deadline with the requirement of 18 games.

The following players are threatened by forfeiture (number of missing games in brackets, players who are threatened of being entirely dropped out in bold, the second number is the minimal number of games needed to be played to avoid dropping):

Group A: Gąsiorowski Jędrzej (2), Maziukiewicz Karol (3, 2), Ribail Kik (2), Shaheen Anthony (2)
Group B: Doumpas Nick (1), Hogetoorn Daniël (1), Huntley Paul (2), Latvala Jussi-Pekka (2)
Group C: Amidon David (1), Harkins Tom (1), Mîțiu Ioan Angelo (2, 1), Thomopoulos Nestor (1), Vuchnich Alex (3, 1)

Please arrange and play games to avoid forfeitures if possible.

The next Sunday, 20 November 2016, is the Deadline Event for Round 9 and a Deadline with the requirement of 15 games.

The following players are in danger of forfeiture (number of missing games in brackets, players who are threatened of being entirely dropped out in bold):

Group A: Bujak Piotr (1), Maziukiewicz Karol (1), Shaheen Anthony (2), Stryker Michael (1)
Group B: nobody
Group C: Mîțiu Ioan Angelo (1), Mukailov Sergey (1), Vuchnich Alex (1)

Piotr Bujak and Anthony Shaheen produce a special case since the first game to be forfeited in their case is the game between them from Round 2. The point is that they were both present during the Deadline Event of Round 2 but somehow ended up their presence by playing only one game. This works almost as if they were both absent during the Deadline Event (and, therefore, it would end up with double forfeiture) but I am opened for explanations why the second game had not been played and I may rule otherwise.

Of course I prefer not to rule such cases but to publish the reported results of actually played games instead.

Sadly to report, more players were dropped from the tournament: J. Moc and T. Tvaroh from Group B and K. Hozjan from Group C.

Daniel Dunbring has finished his games in Group A. He has 10 out of 22, like Janusz Wójciak, but with negative minor points he lands below Janusz.

Timothy Bina established an unusual YATSL record by winning his match 2:0 and awarding 3 minor points with this. The unlucky loser was Krzysztof Tomczyński. Both games are in the repository.

Charles Robinson and Janusz Wójciak have played their match, both finishing their Final A games. Charles managed to win both of them, landing on the second place at the moment and still able to hope for a high position. Janusz, on the other hand, ended up with 10 out of 22. He now takes 6th place, mathematically cannot advance over 5th but also cannot drop under 10th. There come almost two months of Janusz’s waiting for the sentence: will we see him in League A in the next season?

Watch YATSL and remember to join the next season by sending me a mail!

The next Sunday, 6 November, is the Deadline Event of Round 8 and a Deadline with 12 games required.

The following players are threatened with forfeitures provided they won’t play games:

Group A: nobody.
Group B: Jarosław Moc (3/2) and Tomáš Tvaroh (3/3)
Group C: Kremen Hozjan (2/1)

The first number in brackets indicates the minimum number of games required to avoid forfeiture.
