And We're Live... with Tournaments!
Today we are super-thrilled to announce that one of our most anticipated features ever is finally available for all members: Live Chess Tournaments are here!!
Play in rating-specific or open sections, with your choice of 6 time-control formats (ranging from the crazy-fast 1|0 up to the relatively civilized 15|10). New tournaments start every 10 minutes, all day long! These are Swiss-style events with no elimination, so there's plenty of play. Feel your heart race as you compete in real time for glory - and trophies!
The short how-to?... Log into Live Chess, and find a new "Tournaments" tab, next to "New Game" above the Seek Graph. (Start times are based on your own computer's clock for accuracy!) Register by clicking "Join" - or clicking on the tournament name. Take it from there!

We've still got a lot of good Live tournament stuff on the way - including the addition of pages to show your your past tournaments, leaderboards, etc.; an easy way to observe tournaments without joining; other formats (maybe), and so on.
Until then, & until next time... Game On! :D
