Hi Everyone, During lock down, we held weekly online tournaments and then as things opened up we went to monthly tournaments. Now with OTB chess having resumed, we have not been getting enough players attending the tournaments. so I am wondering if we should continue holding online tournaments and if so what sort of tournaments would you like. I'm interested in knowing when they should be held, the time control and the format. thanks
