    Hi

    I am diamond member and I have 1 tournament that I created that is on-going and another one that I created and starts soo.

    http://www.chess.com/tournament/join-tdt(free for all to join)

    Question:

    How many tournaments can I create and run?What is the limit?

  • #222

    You or I, as platinum and diamond members, can enter or run as many tournaments at the same time as we can handle. Basic members can only be in one at a time, gold members 10 at a time, and I don't remember about basic/gold rules for running them.

    Hi guys,

    I'd like to know if time is restricted somehow. I mean if one single game is very slow (e.g. 50 moves x 3 days), this can spoil the joy of hundreds of players. Not to mention vacations...

     Thx.


    It's a fantastic idea is 50 moves for the whole game and within 3 days (72 hours).

    In 72 hours (3days) you must complete 50 moves. Who will fail to submit 50 moves within 72 hours s/he will lose his/her game.

     I like it. It's a good intermediate between live and current online.

    Interesting but not likley. Player that made 50 moves will stall and that way his opponent will not be able to make 50 moves in time.

    but then if my opponent isn't moving, we both lose?

    well, no. as soon as one plays move 50, the other is allowed move 50

  • #231

    I explained it wrong:

    Player can wait till last minute to make his move.Then his opponent got only 1 minute to make move.....get it...

  • #232

    yeah, and you'd get people who just want to ruin it for others who don't even move their first move until 1 min

  • #233

    Not exactly needs to be 50 moves. It may be 40 moves or may be 60 moves. It is same as normal 1move/3day. But instead of 1move/3days 50moves/3days. You know the result of 1move/3days. The same format will be for 50moves/3days.

  • #234

    You mean you have 72 hours to make yours 50 moves and your opponent got his 72 hours to make 50 moves....then it vould be more like live chess 

  • #235

    ....then it would be more like live chess

    YES. I THINK IT WILL SHORTEN A GAME TIME.

  • #236

    But then it wouldnt be correspondence chess and  games couldnt be rated as "standard chess" games.

  • #237

    is there a penalty from withdrawing in a tournament here which has not yet started? Will you be unable to join another tournament in a certain period before being allowed to join tournaments again? thank you.

  • #238

    no penalty for withdrawing during registration!

    I do not understand the tournament format system.  What does 6(2)->1 or 2(1)->1 mean?  Thanks in advance!


    Erik wrote (in post #76):

     the first number is how many people are in a group. the second number is how many games they play at once per person (either 1, or 2). the third is how many people advance to the next round.


    Thanks for explaining 6(2)->1 or 2(1)->1 to the rest of us!
