3-round, 3-week G/60+5 Swiss online at chess.com: July 23, July 30, August 6

allenbecker

This Thursday we start another online multi-week Swiss-system tournament with a time control of 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: July 23, July 30, August 6, in 1 section.  (If we get a large number of entries we might have 2 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, chess.com username, and US Chess rating (we use USCF ratings for pairing purposes).
and “Post” a note/comment indicating you will play.  You must do this prior to 6:00 PM CDT this Thursday, July 23 (which is when I will do the pairings for Round 1)
 
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).
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).

Where is the tournament site?

 

allenbecker

Ellen, you will play right here, on chess.com.  Once I issue the pairings, the White player will challenge the Black player.  Sometimes, it has to be that Black challenges White.   Here are the challenge instructions:
