Caruana signs up.
I haven't seen any online confirmation of this, I believe that today is the deadline, have Carlsen and Caruana signed on the dotted line?

Re: 2018 World Championship in London?

I, like many chess enthusiasts, would love to book tickets for the Match in London, especially as the venue looks great.

Re: Low graded players teaching chess

Re: 10 second buzzer

I would like to use PowerPoint to run this as a loop, however not continuously but for a set time, say 10 minutes at 10 seconds then 5 minutes at 5 seconds, does anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks
