Team Ontario

  • Ontario & Area Canada 
  • Formed: Jan 2, 2009
  • This is a group for players from, in or around the province of Ontario, Canada. "From western hills, to northern shores, to Niagara Falls, where the waters roar. Give us a land of peace, where the free winds blow, and we will build Ontario. A place to stand, a place to grow, Ontari-ari-ari-o!" If you're a resident, expatriate or lover of Ontario (host of the 2036 Olympics(?)), sign up now!

  • Team Quebec seems to have challenged us to a match. They clobbered us last time and gloated about it. Let's see what we can do.

  • Well done Rohit Sangaraju, 2-0 on board 53 versus New Jersey and only 16 years old.

  • I think any tie to Ontario is fine.

  • Maybe ought to open a forum thread, but I thought I'd say that I see no lack of integrity in allowing former Ontarians. Chess.com teams aren't strictly geographical. Either policy seems fine to me.

  • no, it is fine, Phil_Major...its certainly not a hard and fast rule. Play away. We'll sort it out eventually.

  • On the topic of predicting the outcome of a team match, this can be done with some simple formulas on our ratings. The rating comparison between two players results in an expected win percentage. That can be calculated for each pairing and added up for a predicted score. It won't be pretty in the NJ match, but I can run the numbers later today.

  • That map was used extensively by many of the US state teams to recruit new players. They are struggling with recruiting now that they don't have that feature to rely on.
