It's Tourney Time!

     I entered a few tournaments and found I didn't like them. I like the ones in Live Chess, but I am referring to Online Chess. I wrote a post called, "Your Turn Door Knob," that touched base on this topic. Thye whole idea is I like, but don't respect Live Chess, because their tournaments only take a few hours maximum. Two hours and your done with it is good me.

     I learned to dislike this sites Online tournaments as the games and rounds dragged out too long. I was involved in debates with people who generally said I shouldn't have joined those tournaments. No kidding! I would play them outinstead of resigning. Some took awhile!

     The other day I signed in and noticed I had a few emails, so I checked them right away. I then noticed I was signed up for nine Online games. I didn't know how I did that and checked them right away. It seems as though a tournament I entered had began it's Second Round. What? I hadn't entered a tournament for a very long time, so I had to check how long ago I signed up and advanced past the First Round.

     I pressed the link and noticed right away that this tournament allowed a player 14 days to make a move. I chuckled right then and there, because I knew it was quite awhile ago and that this may have been the tourney that broke the camels back, so to speak.

     If you go here,, you will see the Home Page for the Slow Quads Tournament. On this page you will plainly see the tournament "Started on July 23, 2011 6:03 PM" along the left side towards the top and just under the four player Group. Please note that says 2011.

     As I see the moves come in I get on them right away. That is just because I am somewhat of a dry humorist as well as sarcastic. 14 days to move? Are you serious? I think I better check to see if I win money for this tournament.

    I mean that if a tournament is in its second round three years later that I think that is rediculous. Just my opinion! I know people have lost on time in tournaments like these, because they have passed away.
