Sort:
Martin_Stahl

This forum will have the process on how the tourney will work. I will also be posting the parings here. It will be a locked topic and if you have any questions or problems you can reply in the forum announcement on the event before the 23rd or in the Group Chat room on that day.

 

Step 1:

Log into Live and join the US Chess chat room.

Go to the Chat tab and Join the USChess room:

v2

 

v3

 

Please post a check-in on the chat

I should be able to see everyone is in the room but posting an line will assist with others seeing you there to and help with issuing challenges.

Before each round I will post the pairing for each group in this forum. Here comes the harder part of doing a manual event. Each pairing will have to create an UNRATED, CUSTOM challenge.

Both players are responsible for the challenge but by default, Black should issue the challenge. In order for this to work correctly, all players should have their challenges set up to allow anyone to challenge; you only need this temporarily during this event and can change it back after.


There are a few different way to issue the challenge and I don't really care how you do it as long as the color allocations are correct and the right players play each other.

 

One easy way is to find the player and click their name and issue a custom challenge (12|3 time control, unrated, choose the appropriate color to play). Here are some screenshots of one way to do it.

v2

Click your opponent's username and chose Challenge to a Game

 

choose the appropriate options:

 

Click Create New Game. The other player needs to watch for the challenge and accept it. The pending challenge will only show in the console for the challenger.

v3

You can use a similar process as above or use the Create Challenge option

change the game type to custom at 12 | 3

Click Custom and enter the time control:


Choose your opponent:

Click Random

Enter opponent's name.

Change to Unrated and choose the appropriate color for the player issuing the challenge:

Click Play

Challenge Pending:

After the games, please let me know the game is complete, and who won or if there was a draw. I will verify the information too but that will allow me to see things more quickly.

I'm going to work on standings but I have updated all rounds above. Please let me know if something is wrong so the submitted report is correct.

Thanks everyone that was able to play today. It was a bit chaotic but not too bad overall.
