War has been declared! It is time to sign-up for the 2007 Gamesquad Chess Tournament!
1) All games will be played via the It's Your Turn game server. IYT is a FREE game server that has a decent chess section. By conducting the games on this server, others can log-in and watch the tournament unfold. Also, the server automatically tracks time controls and notifies a player when their opponent has made a move, largely automating the whole process and thereby keeping the games moving.
2) The time-control for the games will be one move every 7 days. This should allow even the busiest of us to have time to participate.
If this sounds like fun, here is what you need to do to participate:
1) Go sign-up at It’s Your Turn. Once you have your User ID, post it here along with your chess rating (if any). Players who do not have a rating will be assigned a default rating of 1400.
2) When the players list is finalized, I will arrange the first round pairings and post them here.
3) Those players who are assigned the White pieces will be responsible for challenging their opponent via the IYT server.
4) Once your game is underway, post a note here notifying me of that fact.
5) When a game is completed, notify me and send along a copy of the PGN score.
6) When all games are completed, the next round pairing will begin.
That’s all there is to it. If you are interested in participating, just let me know on this thread!
Mount up! Time to go to war!
