Sorry if it seemed like I was letting this go cold. Many thanks to everyone for playing their games, and sorry to khalid for not getting a game in this round.
Just for the record, marcos (who has not visited the site in over a month now
) has been withdrawn from the competition. This means that all previous results against him will be reset to 0 pts/ 0 pd and all future games drawn against him will be a "sitting out" round for his opponent. I guess we're fortunate in that all of us who played against him managed to beat him (I half suspect that this is why he no longer wishes to take part) as nobody is disadvantaged any more than anyone else by the removal of our victories against him (myself included).
It does however skew the leaderboard somewhat as the three people now at the top are three people who haven't had their sitting out round yet, so it makes sense that they would be at the top as they've played more games than the rest of us! It will even out in the long run of course as everyone will have 1 and only 1 sitting out round, but who has already and who is yet to sit out is something else to consider when looking at positions...
