Proudly presented by Bill of Rights, this open tournament parameters are: 3 days per move, 100 players with group size of 5 and 1 advancing, no vacation.

Any who may be interested, please feel free to join "Bill of Rights". Whatever your decision, please, enjoy the tournament and play well.

I would like to point out a group, "Starfleet Marine Corps". This group has been created for the sole purpose of ending the group and random invites I have been sending. Members of "Starfletet Marine Corps" will receive invites to the tournaments I sponsor. This is not a membership drive as this team will not be participating in team matches or vote chess.

Do you prefer to pit your skills against the next? Do you enjoy climbing and clawing your way to the top? Do you like racing up that hill? Do you like tournaments? Sounds like you're a Starfleet Marine! The Starfleet Marine Corps members receive invitations to tournaments sponsored by Starfleet Academy and a couple other groups. Here, you have "first dibs" on these tournaments. Links to other Starfleet groups are provided, but under no circumstances will any Marine be encouraged to requested to join. This group does not participate in either Team Mathces or Vote Chess.

Team Kansas welcomes all residents of Kansas, present or former, who are interested in representing Kansas in the "U.S. Team Chess League" For practice and for fun, we will be taking part in team matches and vote chess competitions. Are you from Kansas? Do you live in Kansas? If so, please, join us! [Please remember that you may only play for 1 team that is involved in the U.S. Chess League].

    When invites are sent, those invites do not show the board. I will make it a a priority to get into the habit of including the fact that certain tournaments are thematic in future invites.

    I wish this tournament had made itself known that it was a 'first move already made tourney'. I strongly dislike these kinds of tourneys and if I misread it, I'm sorry, but it should be displayed more visibly. What's the point of each game starting with the same opening moves. Ah! I hate it.
