Won on time & withdraw

Posted by jootoo on 1/18/09 at 6:34 PM

Hi, thanks for joining this tournament, as I mentioned, the players between 1351-1500 are the most active ones, and this tournament start first, among the 14 similar tournaments.

I like to tell you something, please ignore it if you know it before.

Won on time

this is the knock-out tournament, you will play two games with your opponent (one white & one black), the winner will go to next round, or two of you go to next round if tie.

Sometimes your opponent do not show up and you win on time, it is quite normal at tournament, you will go to next round.

But if both players in the same group do not show up and tie, then they go to next round, it is not fair for other winner go to next round after playing tough games, so I will remove these 2 players, for this case.

Withdraw

If you complete your two games and could not win and go to next round, and you wish to attend other tournament, suggest to click "withdraw" on this tournament to quit, your rating will keep the same.

thanks

Winners:

#2 2nd Place popay (1715)

#3 3rd Place ukaman (1539)

#3 3rd Place AndrewKostousov (2000)

    "Can we please immediately disqualify both of them? This will take the rest of the year to complete."

    sorry for I can not do that, the system is not allowed.

    however, I will message them to advise moving faster.

    Remind me never to interact with idiots like Mostafavolt, who is not resigning despite having clearly lost. I hate players like that. Hate.

    Hey, I made it to the second round!  So did Sabur!  We both beat each other as black.

    I'm only playing one game in this tournament at the moment - is this right?

    yes, one at a moment.

    Jythier told us:

    "As far as I can tell, when you are eliminated from a tournament you can join another tournament.  "

    thanks for your information,  I will remove the withdraw section on my statement in future tournaments.

    I'm only playing one game in this tournament at the moment - is this right? Normally in a 2 to 1 tournament you play both games simultaneously?

  • 6 years ago

    Jythier

    As far as I can tell, when you are eliminated from a tournament you can join another tournament.  I'm in more than 10 at the moment, but because some of them are multiple rounds and I was eliminated I could join more tournaments.

    last day I created 14 tournaments at different rating range (150 gap each), and set them start after 7 days.

    it seems this one (1351- 1500) will start first, for it has the most players join (75 now), I guess the playes at these rating are most active at chess.com, you are part of them,Cool and me too.Laughing

    the tournament will start automatically when the 100th player join.

    thanks
