Re: World Tafl Federation

Elaborating on the Candidate Master (CM). A Federation Master from the FM scheme above is as seldom as snow in June. I took another look at the CM idea and I propose that a player can become a Candidate Master (CM) if - he is rated at least 1600 - he has played at least 500 games - he has qualified...
