Play from anywhere!

Dear players,

In order to keep tournament running with high speed, I would recommend to use Android/iPhone chess.com applications. It can help you to make your moves from anywhere. Especially a good idea to make your moves going to/from office and during lunch, when most of your opponents are also could be online.

    Really, the most sad news on this tourney are to have TheRobertBentley timouted in round 3...  We've lost one of the leaders :-(.

    Please, try to find them in skype or reach via mobile to notify. Chess.com sends reminder at last hours via email, but it could be too late.

    It seems like some players forgot about tournament, and they might loose by time. Is it possible to send reminder to them?

    10 min per game is a good idea, that's the way live tournaments occurs on chess.com. Let's have a trial "10|0 Rapid" tournament Wed, Sep 4th somewhere in 19:00-21:00 GMT+3 time. No pre-registration is required, just come at that time to http://www.chess.com/livechess. It's Swiss-style tournments, 5 rounds, takes ~1.5 hours total.

    I can send you outlook invite in order not to miss, if you send me your epam email in comments.
