3-round, 3-week G/60+5 Swiss on chess.com: June 25, July 2, July 9

allenbecker
This Thursday marks the start of our SECOND online multi-night Swiss-system tournament with a longer time control (G/60;+5 = initial time of 60 minutes plus a 5 second increment for each move).  This will be a three-round tournament (1 game each Thursday 7:00 pm, for 3 Thursdays in a row: June 25, July 2, July 9), in TWO SECTIONS.
 
Remember, chess.com doesn't have the ability to auto-run a multi-week event, so I will step in as the Tournament Director, pairing each round (just like the old days at the club!).
 
Please indicate your interest in playing to this FORUM post , remembering to provide your First Name, Last Name, EMAIL address, chess.com username, and US Chess rating.
 
You must do this prior to 5:30 PM CDT on Thursday, May 28 (which is when I will do the pairings).  If you don’t sign up before the pairings are completed you can always start in round two. There is no entry fee and this will not be USCF rated (it will affect your rating on chess.com).
 
We need this information in order to do the pairings. 
Everyone will be paired according to their USCF rating, but the tournament is not USCF rated.
One-half point Byes are available in any round. If you would like a Bye, please notify us before the published cutoff date & time. (5:30 PM Thursdays).

PS, we now have 5 pre-registered. 

A reminder for tonight.  Once I publish the pairings at 6:00 pm,

THE PLAYER WITH WHITE MUST CREATE THE CHALLENGE!!
 
Let me repeat that: We have no ability to create the individual game challenges on chess.com for you. 
Therefore, whoever has White must create the challenge against their opponent. 
Instructions for doing so are here.
 
Everyone should try to be online by 7:00 PM and ready to play! Please try to start your games as close to 7 as possible.  Let’s all remember to please be patient; we’ll all get better at this.
 
If you have any questions feel free to call/text Allen Becker at: 414-807-0269

Since we have only 9 players, I think we'll just have 1 Section.  Pairings very soon.
