Hi all,

I thought that I'd have a change and put on a series of chess960 tourneys.

The format is 64/100 players,4/group/3 days/move/2 concurrent games/opponent/2 to advance from each group,unless there are ties and,then,ALL tied players will advance to the next round.ANY PLAYER(S) OVER 1499 AT THE START OF THE TOURNEY WILL BE REMOVED AND WILL BE INVITED TO THE NEXT APPROPRIATE TOURNEY FOR THEIR NEW RATING.

Good luck,everyone,and,please,enjoy yourselves,

MikeCool (wallyjack)

    Now,before any of you start whingeing about the players' ratings,please read on.

    For some reason Chess.com is showing players' chess960 ratings in the pairings,but showing their online chess ratings in their games.Don't ask me why,because I don't know either!

    Yes,mate,but I state 2 concurrent games PER opponent,so 3 opponents is 3 x 2 = 6,so a maximum of 6 concurrent games per roundSmile.

    This sounds awesome, wallyjack, looking forward to it :)

    Just a note, though: your message says 2 concurrent games, but the way it's set up, it'll actually be 6 concurrent games. I'm fine either way, just an FYI.

    That's true,have you had a go at looking on Google to see if anything's been posted about chess960 openings?

    I just wonder how one goes about studying 960 chess....I mean there can't be many openning books out there

    This tourney will start on 9/5/2014 irrespective of how many eligible players I have,but should we reach 100 eligible players before that date,then I'll start it on that daySmile
