It's that time of the year again....

Details


This will be a one round, double round robin tournament with a 14-day time control. The tourney will be conducted over at Chess.com. This will be an invitational event ONLY! This tourney will have a maximum of 12 players (but no minimum) with 256 points available. Vacation time is allowed. All players are encouraged (but not required) to report results to the GameSquad Chess Ladder.

What You Need to Do

If you are interested in joining, all you need to do is register for a free account over at Chess.com. Once registered, send me (PM) or post your Chess.com handle here (i.e., mine is RooksBailey) so I can send you an invite to the tourney. Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis! Tourney will begin as soon as possible (I will announce a cut-off date later).

That's all there is to it! Good luck and have fun! :toast:

Magnus Carlsen just pulled out of a tournament. Maybe you can PM him Scott, see if he wants to join ours?

Heres the tournament, and his resignation.

Are you now thinking of joining their tournament as his replacement?
I hear Kasparov in that letter Carlson sent to FIDE. Looks like Kasparov is still waging war against FIDE, but now through his protege. :)

I'm thinking about kicking the tourney off next week. If we still only have four players, how should be proceed:


  1. Just have a tourney amongst we four.
  2. Open the tourney to Chess.com players to fill some extra slots. If so, how many extra players?
I'm thinking option 2, with the idea of allowing two additional players to join just to inject some fresh blood into the mix. So it would be a total of six players, with 12 games per player.

I'm happy for either. I do think we should start.

I'd go with option 2, and get another 2 - 4 players an opportunity. Even an additional 2 players (12 games) would be plenty. Peterk - where are you???

Thanks so much!

Okay, invites have been sent, so if you didn't get yours, just let me know. I'm not planning on starting it until next week (probably Thanksgiving Day), though. I have set max players up to eight (if we get less, I will open the tourney to all Chess.com members. But if we get more requests than that, I will up the limit.)
