September Swiss - 3-week Swiss event, G/60 with 5-second increment - (September 3, 10, 17) - online at chess.com

Thursday, September 3rd, we will hold another online multi-week Swiss-system tournament with a time control of G/60 +5  (initial time of 60 minutes plus a 5 second increment for each move).  

This will be a three-round tournament (1 game each Thursday 7:00 pm, for 3 Thursdays in a row: September 3, 10, and 17, in 1 section.  (If we get enough entries we might have 2 sections).

Remember, chess.com doesn't have the ability to automatically-pair a multi-week event, so I will step in as the Tournament Director, pairing each round (just like the old days at the club!).
 
Please sign up by indicating your interest in playing to THIS FORUM post, remembering to provide your First Name, Last Name, EMAIL, chess.com username, and US Chess rating (we use USCF ratings for pairing purposes).
and “Post” a note/comment indicating you will play.  You must do this prior to 6:00 PM CDT Sepgtember 3 (which is when I will do the pairings for Round 1)
 
If you don’t sign up before the pairings are completed you can always start in round two.  There is no entry fee and this will not be USCF rated (it will affect your rating on chess.com).
 
One-half point Byes are available in any round. If you would like a Bye, please notify us before the published cutoff date & time. (6:00 PM Thursdays).  I will pair each round at 6:00 pm Thursday.
