A tournament for players who enjoy Chess 960.

A minumum of only 1 completed game so that anyone who is interested can join.

3 days per move allows you to take breaks over the weekends without needing vacation time, so the play is friendly to non-premium members.  For those with vacation time, vacation use is allowed.

9 player groups means you are guaranteed 16 games in the first round.  Tournament is expected to last 3 rounds, so the top players will get 48 games.

This tournament will begin on February 1, whether full or not.  If the tournament fills before February 1, I will start it early.

    Richard5 and PaulStopa, are still dragging out that last game. It is everybodys duty to eliminate these guys in the next round, or this tournament will never end, lol!

    Huh... well, it seems that table two is still lagging along - and sadly, the player there that seems the most *slow* is going to go on to the next round. Jeeze.... we'll be here till 2013...

    There appears to be a bug in the software. Though a game appears to be still in progress at Table 2, yet the stats on the top of this page say that 648 out of 648, 100% of games in round 1 are completed.

    The games in group 2 seem to be progressing.  Perhaps the two players were on vacation.

    Thanks for the info - what's going on with Group 2??

    @Killing_Joke - The next round will start when all games in the current round are complete.  Once all of the games in your pairing are complete, the site will indicate those people moving on by a yellow background and an arrow by their names.

    Having looked at the group you are in, it looks like you will make the "top 3" cut and move to the next round.
