In this announcement, I will state the rules for each event and tournament. Please read completley and carefully, so you know what to do for each event that you register for.

The Puzzle Battle Tournament rules:

Registration: When the puzzle battle tournament event is posted, to register, comment "I want to join", and we will record you down for the entry list for the Puzzle Battle Tournament.

Pairings: Pairings will be posted after the deadline for entries are closed. Someone will post the pairings, and it is your responsibility to take a look at them. Parings might be posted, using a similiar system like ones used in regular chess tournaments.

Your Match Play: Your match must be played between the specific times given. It is your responsibility to negotiate a time with your opponent, that is convenient for both of you. If player 1 keeps on negotiating a time with player 2, and player 2 never responds, or doesnt show up during the agreed time, player 1 will get a forfeit win. This rule will be applied strictly, as this is how many people lose their matches. Just negotiate an agreed time with your opponent, and play the match!

Number of matches: If you and your opponent have a chess.com membership, you will be playing a best out of 3 match. If you only have a membership, and your opponent doesnt, then you will play only one match. If neither of you have a membership, then you will play only one match. So, think about the status of your opponent on chess.com, and determine how many matches to play.

Results: After you have finished your game, you MUST take a screenshot of the page, and post it in the "results" forum, (that will later be created). Along with the screenshot, you need to state who won, and who your opponent was, to make the recording of the results more convenient. (Please make sure if we got the results right, if there is a mistake, please let one of the helpers know).

Prizes: The prizes are TBD. In general, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, will get Membership Points and possibly an certificate, (you will know what that is, if you are in the orginal club "Road to GM"). Later, as more people start to join our tournaments (we hope), we will maybe give out memberships for prizes.

The Puzzle Rush Event:

Registration: When the puzzle battle tournament event is posted, to register, comment "I want to join", and we will record you down for the entry list for the Puzzle Rush Event.

What to do: There will be a given specific start date, and an end date. Between those given times, you must post your BEST CHOSEN puzzle rush run in the Puzzle Rush forum. We will determine which mode it will be, 3 minute, 5 minute, or Survival. 

Results: You must take a screenshot of your chosen puzzle rush, with PROOF IF YOU DID THE RIGHT RUSH, in the comments in the right place. Along with the screenshot, post what mode you did, and how many you got, (to confirm your own results).

Prize: Prizes are TBD. In general, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, will get Membership points, and those will be the only prize since this type of tournament will run very often. 

Puzzle Competition:

How it works: Someone will post a puzzle, and the first 2 people who COMPLETLEY comment the correct full answer, will win. The winners will recieve small amounts of Membership points, (very few, 1st-4MP, 2nd-2MP) because this tournament will run ALMOST every day. This is a matter of fact of speed, thinking, calculation, and etc. 

Another Prize: By the end of the season, which will take up one month, the top 3 people who have earned the most MP out of solving puzzles, will get Extra MP. The amount of prize are TBD.

Those 3 are the main events, and hopefully you will join all of them!! More events and tournaments are to be added on later, once we get more entries, and more members in the club!! 

(There are also jobs for each event, which i will put the list of jpbs later on this week).
