OTB on chess.com Tournaments

  • International 
  • Formed: Jul 2, 2012
  • This is a group designed solely for the purpose of (manual) tournaments on chess.com which are designed to be as close as possible to OTB chess. Meaning, you are strongly encouraged to use an actual chess baord when thinking about your moves, and databases, books, analysis boards (moving the pieces around while thinking) is strictly prohibited. These tournaments, at least the first one we hold, is strictly for people either I, or gopacklittlebro know in real life. We may open it up to others in future tournaments. These are all manual, meaning, you get paired with a person, you have to challenge them yourself to a correspondence game. Good luck and have fun!!!

  • you probably mean no-shows. I wouldn't normally pick someone up on a typo, but that was an amusing one.
