GMT-5 is a zone, not a time. The GMT-referenced time would be 19:00 GMT, there is no numeral 5 involved.

If you're going to use a zone, you also need a time.

1pm CDT is simply not "GMT-5" it is GMT 18:00. Because -5 is the zone. Notice that 18:00 is also not 19:00. See how complicated you make it by trying to shorten it and say less words?

@euldulle We have both Standard Time and Daylight-saving Time, CDT is UTC-5, CST is UTC-6, so beware of pulling -6 off a chart. :)

" Rounds start at 1 p.m. local time (CDT),
" which is GMT-6, 20:00h Europe, 23:30 India.

... was a good try though still wrong. If CDT is UTC-6, then start time is 21:00
in europe, and 00:30 in India. CDT is UTC - 5.

I insist on claiming that just writing "Start time is 18:00 UTC" is far less prone to errors.

This is going to be interesting tussle. Magnus and Vlad are missing, but perhaps for the right reasons. I expect MVL to continue to amaze us.
