Thanks for the response...
Right, but are the players re-ranked after each round? Or will the #1 seed face the #2 seed in round two?
It is not a "bracket". Each round players are reranked and reseeded into groups based on their ratings.
But in "brackets" the top seeds will face each other in round two?
We don't have a bracket system here at Chess.com at all. What I was saying was that if ours was a bracket, and we put people into groups the way we do (#1 player goes into group 1, #2 player goes into group2, etc etc), then #1 and #2 WOULD face each other in the 2nd round. However, because its NOT a bracket system that we're running, #1 and #2 WONT play each other in round 2, they'll be regrouped according to rankings and dispersed into separate groups.
Jay, Thank you for the clarification! I somehow got it all wrong and assumed that a multiround tournament with a groupsize of 2 would work as (March Madness) Brackets.
This stat is found in my turned base chess page, maybe you could allow only people who lets say less then 3hrs in one and less then 6hrs in the other, that way slow people play with slow people and fast people play with fast people.
I know I play more then a move a day and most of my games last less then a week....
we just launched a feature to allow tournament directors to limit by time per move!
How do I interpret the time/move information - I'm not sure just what it is saying. OK, it's a pretty basic question - I know... ... but I don't know!
As you can probably tell, I'm just getting my feet wet with organizing tournaments ... hence the (no doubt) basic questions...
As I look at the tournament listings I'm not sure how to read the 'format' information. Can someone explain (or point me to an explanation) the following:
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.
Crystal clear - thanks!
And congrats on the new baby...
I dont know about this, but lets say I set my max games at ten, and allow friends to challenge me and say now I have 14 games going on, if I register in a tournament and and it starts, would the tournament games show up?
Maybe there should be an option for allow firends and allow for tournament games...
