Well i going to try out a tournament, and then i will see how it´s workes!
I only hope that i dont lose any games cause the time.
Would it be possible to add a Tournaments I have directed section to a player's tournament page? (i.e. it would correspond to the Tournaments I am currently directing section) At the moment, once a tournament I am directing is complete, there is no way to link to it other than try to find it from memory, unless it was one that I played in myself, in which case I can find it under My Completed Tournaments. Thanks.
Someone please tell me what does tie break points mean when I participate in any chess tournament, and how to increase them ??? I have witnessed tie break points take you to top someone please help me reply... I also want to get on to :(
Does this page help?
Thanks mate :)
How do you ensure no one uses chess programs? Especially for correspondence chess of this nature there is a high chance some may take recourse to unfair means.It would hurt the ratings of genuine players.
Hi, I registered for an official tournament that should have started some minutes ago. It's a thematic one (forgot which one, but there shouldn't be a lot of official thematic tournaments), for 1600-1800 elo. I'm around 1650, so I guess I could have entered. Now the tournament has disappeared from my upcoming list, I'm not in, and I can't find it anywhere in the current tournaments list, which btw is buggy and unpractical (impossible to find a tournament with less than 75% completion). It's not on the upcoming list neither. What's happening ?
Just as elgregos said... There Is NO "17th Chess.com Tournament (1601-1800)" this should be the link... http://www.chess.com/tournament/17th-chesscom-tournament-1601-1800 but... that category is Missing...
edit : Now it works...
Ok, the tournament has begun and I'm in (as aldlv and Jat199 I hope). It seems there was some kind of lag, no problem now.
the problem is NOT with the Ruy Lopez tournament... is with the 17th Chess.com Tournament (1601-1800).....
I signed up quite a while ago but am just now getting into this forum. It rocks!
I just saw a list of cheaters. How is it possible to cheat in chess?
There is a problem with knockout tournaments (i.e. groups of 2) that requires a technical fix. Where neither player in the group makes a move, each wins a game on time and apparently both players progress, which seems very unfair. For common sense to prevail, it relies on the tournament director to spot this happening and remove both players, but sometimes this gets missed or the tournament director is no longer active.
An example is Group #9 here: http://www.chess.com/tournaments/pairings.html?id=26129&round=3
Please could a staff member comment on this? Thanks.
The TD was the one who set the tournament up to be in groups of 2 before it started.
From experience, groups of 2 where both timeout on 1 each hasn't been that common.
A TD can't remove players while they still have current games.
If this "win 1 each" has only occured once in the three rounds, what makes you feel something untoward may be happening that would warrant both player removal?
I'm not suggesting that the players pre-arranged it if that's what you meant, far from it. People can fail to show up, particularly in later rounds of tournaments, it happens. Sometimes other things take prority over chess. What I am saying is that if someone fails to show up for a round, there should be no possibility of them returning later in the tournament as it isn't fair on the other players. In this case the TD has rightly removed them, however I think it should be done automatically. You are correct in that it doesn't happen all that frequently, but when it does happen it is a problem.
hi,expiration date of my diamond membership is at 29 november,,,,,
can i play tournaments online without any payment
When I join a tournament, when it starts will the games automatically show up in my online games?
Yes the tournament games auto appear for you in your current games list.
I think you should let basic members paly as many tournamens as you want like the premium members and the gold members tell me if you agee with me
