3-round, 3-week G/60+5 Swiss on June 25, July 2, July 9

This Thursday marks the start of our SECOND 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: June 25, July 2, July 9), in TWO SECTIONS.

Remember, doesn't have the ability to auto-run 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 indicate your interest in playing to the following FORUM post , remembering to provide your First Name, Last Name, EMAIL, username, and US Chess rating:
and “Post” a note/comment indicating you will play.  You must do this prior to 5:30 PM CDT this Thursday, June 25 (which is when I 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

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. (5:30 PM Thursdays).

Best regards,
