Personally, I would like to have tournaments themed by opening! :-)

Still think these would be a good idea - especially with the London System !! :-D :-D

Create a private tournament with a title like LONDON SYSTEM. Send a message to players you want to enter. Tell them I will invite you if you promise to play the London system. When they agree invite them. When they confirm add them to your Buddy list. If they don't play as promised move them to your ignore list. When tournament is complete use these lists to decide who you invite to your next tournament.

You want to invite player's with more than 100 complete games and more then 10 games in progress. If both players abandon a game your tournament will be stalled. You cant create your next tournament until the current tournament is complete. Don't invite me to I only play black.

Thanks for the suggestion - but too much like hard work!

You can challenge anyone and copy the above FEN into the position window. You can also use the above FEN in open games. Because you copied the the position it can't be a rated game. It's not a tournament. But it's a good way to practice the London system. If you are evil you can modify the FEN so your opponent can't castle. But he might refuse you a second game.

If you want the game to be rated exchange messages with you opponent and agree that the initial moves will be 1.Nf3 d5 2.d4 Nf6 3.Bf4 Nickerson's suggestions regarding Buddy list and Ignore list can are useful with this approach.

I wonder if you move to the capital of Great Britain if you will find many players who play the London System
