Great online chess tournaments!
Hi and good luck to everyone at this tournament!
I have a doubt about it....could anyone explain me how the tiebreak works?
Tie-Brakes rules are very complicated. Its nearly unpossible to calculate.
In my tournament -new kid on the block- i found out the slow player will given advantages.
Because the start very late und setting on last ranking. So the play mostly from lower rank to
higher rank. In such a way the earning more points. I made this experience as a quick response player,
because i made 21/22 games with 1-open game 12W-9L-0D with 81_TBpoints. The late starter and very slow
Player has just 7/22 games with 15-open games 5W-2L-0D with 50_TBpoints. So slow player earning from
lower ranking and control all other and let them waiting over months to come ready with tournament.
Hat can be chess-like. It should be in the opposite way, quick-response player should have bonus-point.
Therefore the Tie-Brake rules are very unfair and not to understand with her hidden calculation.
You are wrong Andreas.
Tie break points update with each completed game, so it makes no difference when the games are completed.
If you with full intention slow and longwaiting tactic you will be on longwaiting rank. Then you earn more points because you play mostly against higher rank player. At my first tournament -new kid on theblock-
12-player we started 6-weeks ago nearly all player finished but only 2-player controls the whole field.
My results of 21/22 games 12W-9L-0D, 84TB-points. 1-open game, rank-4 as a quick-response player.
Player dracksdman 8/22 games 6W-2L-0D, 51TB-points. 14-open games now rank-10 as very slow player.
He play mostly against higher ranking player so he earns more TB-points as all the other. Hat can no alright.
It has to be in the opposite way quick-response should have higher points. So the very complicated calcula-
tion is hidden unfair Rule and to becorrected. It is a rule for timewasting player.
Have a look at the tie break points after all games are completed.
Yours will increase as other games in your group are completed.
It makes no difference when games are finished.
Thanks for your explanations but finally I found out how tie breaks works in the tournament´s rules. It´s true that It´s not easy to manage it although I think now I have a better knowledge about them.
Any way thanks and good luck!
Can someone tell me why i cannot start an inlimited participant tourney...the most it allows for me is 99...thx in advance
what can you do about a guy that uses 71 hours per move in a 3 day move tourney... also, his timer said 1 hour when i went to sleep and when i woke he had 16 hours left? how does that happen? its sooo anoying
how does ur rating system works. it goes from950 to 980 when i win and it reduces when i loose.
Nitin...go to deyails....show rating adjustment.......this will how much you gain or lose for win lose.....it depends how good your opponent is....challenge me...rated match and i will show you a thing or two...if you would like ;-)
I played in the "International U2000 Championship" at Group 13. I can say that they use chess engine when they play with me. If you see the history of the games of the said players, you will know whether they use the m/c or not.
Please try to solve this problem otherwise it will become "Chess Engine Tournament".

MOEK....so how do you stop them using books.....at the end of the day if you arw better than them...they will crumble as soon as you pass the opening moves on the emgine...i sometimes throw in a good but slightly rogue move....which kills them off
Oh i thought you meant the chess.com explorer...no i agree with u the use of chess engines is defeatist to a fair game
Moe: Using an engine is against chess.com rules. But so is "naming and shaming" in the forums. Please use the support tickets to contact staff discreetly and do so only if you can be sure of engine use.
At th moment of this post, i am playing an Evan gambit game with this position: My opponent with whites Ka6, Nc2. I have e5, Kd6.Everybody see this is a draw however the guy do not take the pawn and keep rambling all around with the knight this is going on for several weeks or months.I feel traped in this game please somebody give me an idea.Is this legal? HELP!
Hi Puchiko, It's Ok. I don't want to disturb to the others. They also want to play and win. I also have a lot of tournaments still going on. Thanks for the advice. :)
I challenge you to a game Deathwish, you are mine.
