STW Chess Tournament – anyone up for it?
I’m keen to play if someone wants to start another tournament
I’m grahamwynne on therePosted 1 month ago
Doesn’t need to be a second tournament necessarily. Could (I think) just be set up as a STW chess club on chess.com where people can challenge others, or just post something saying they are looking for a game. Or maybe set it up as a ladder competition, though again not sure how feasible that is.
As usual I’m full of ideas but not solutions!!Posted 1 month ago
That sounds like a great thing for someone else to do for mePosted 1 month ago
OK. As Danny did thre first one. I’ll see if I can start a second STW tournament. Similar format. Groups of 5. Play the others in your group twice. Top 2 go through. Time limit 2 days per move.
Provisional start on Sunday 24th if enough interest. This linkshould sign up for it.

Hmm, I can’t find it via the app. However that’s almost certainly some sort of error on my part, I’ve never signed up to a tournament before…Posted 1 month ago
OK Looks like that link doesn’t work for invite only tournaments.
Anyone interested add their Chess.com username to this thread and I’ll see if I can send individual invites.Posted 1 month ago

Are you on the app or online? App, the invite is buried deep within the menu and you don’t get a notification for it.

What happens on 24th then – do you just get a notification to play a game and the site will pair you with another invitee?
Sorry for the daft questions. I can play the game (to a certain extent 🤣 ) but all the organised play is new to me.Posted 1 month ago
When the tournament opens you will get a notification. The website computer splits the entrants into groups of 5. Or 5s and 4s if there is an odd number.
At that point you have 4 simultaneous games in play against the other 4 players in your group. 2 as white, 2 as black. After each game finishes you have another game against each player. If you were black in game 1 you are white in game 2 etc. So once it starts you will need to make the first move on 2 boards
You have 2 days max for each move. Miss that limit and you lose on time. The tournament will move along better if we don’t always use all the time though. IdeallyI would suggest at least on move a day if possible.
I set the limit at 2 days so if there is a certain time of day that fits with other stuff you can do your moves around the same time each day without getting near a timeout loss.Posted 1 month ago
Started playing a little bit after watching The Queen’s Gambit (which is ace, BTW) – I remain so bad at chess it’s almost dangerous. 🙂Posted 1 month ago
