Here is a Chess960 tournament which doesn't have a minimum games completed requirement.  Open to all who would like some Chess960 games.  It also gives a way to get some 960 games started for newcomers and those who mainly play live and want the 960 experience too.

    Black is playing on to mate, and waiting 3 days each move, thus holding up a tournament already 2.5 years old. when i played him a round or so back, he lost both games on time when faced with mate in one. I don't understand, even if he wins, he is eliminated.

    Round 5, two opponents left. Both on vacation with about a month left each. Probably their 6th vacation apiece as well since we started. Finished with the other guy both games quickly. Gee, why sign up to play chess? Answer, because I can go on vacation and hold everyone up! Hell, I'm gonna go on vacation tomorrow, but I'm playing chess on mine!

    I think every round has been extended a few months due to player using extended vacation time. They are back at it again this round....

    zipawn, it's called Chess960 because there are 960 different starting positions that can be made by mixing up the queen, bishops, knights, king and rook. Hope this makes sense :)

    This is the very first 960 game or tournament I am playing. I don't know why you call it 960..why not 690? But i think its a good exercise for mobility tactics...

    Well... let's hope it's allowed.

    My tournament is a 12 player tournament.It's called "a tournament of great fun".

    It's played in the 12(2) -> 1 method. 

    The time control is 24hours/nove

    Most players are rated between 1700-2100.

    If you want to join' look it up in the upcoming tournament section.

    I'll be glad to see you there!

    I want to write here a comment about the tournament I will be hosting soon. Is this forbidden by the site's rule, or by this tournament director's will?

    I'll be happy to recive an answer soon. My tournament starts in 2 days, and I have a cfew players missing.

    Anyway, if for some reason this post is rule-breaking, too, please let me know.
