3-week tournament starts this Thursday! 3-Round, Game/60+5 (one game each Thursday) - May 28, June 4, June 11

This Thursday marks the start of our first online multi-night Swiss-system tournament with a longer time control (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).  If there’s enough interest, we’ll have two sections.


Please post your interest in playing at the link below (or email allenbecker@wi.rr.com), remembering to provide your First Name, Last Name, chess.com username, and US Chess rating:


and “Post” a note/comment indicating you will play.  You must do this prior to 5:00 PM CDT on Thursday, May 28 (which is when we will do the pairings). 
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).


We need this information in order to do the pairings. 
Everyone will be paired according to their USCF rating, but the tournament is not USCF rated.
One-half point Byes are available in any round. If you would like a Bye, please notify us before the published cutoff date & time. (5:00 PM Thursday May 28 for round 1.)


Best regards,

Southwest Chess Club

(PS, if you encounter problems with the tournament, feel free to text/phone Allen Becker at 414-807-0269)



PS --  If you would rather just play blitz Thursday night, we have created an "Arena Blitz" event for this Thursday.  Use this link to sign up:  https://www.chess.com/live#r=208834
"Arena" blitz is different from a Swiss tournament.  The system keeps pairing players who have finished a prior game and are available.  The "Arena" is open from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm this Thursday.
