Round 1 Results

1. Rules

Normal online rules. No books, computer help etc. Players must not view other games while their own game is in progress. 

2 Settings 

See Alter Settings 

Players should check that their settings in live chess allow a sufficient grade range for challenges. 

3. Challenges

See Making a Challenge 

The first player in the draw will have White first and should issue a challenge at 7:30 issuing White as their colour. You do not need to be 'friends' to do this.

If there is still no accepted correct challenge by 7:45 then the absent player defaults 2-0. 

4. Receiving a Challenge.

See Receiving a Challenge.

If a player has not received an expected challenge they should make one themselves. 

5. Game Finished 

After the first game has finished the first player can issue another friend challenge specifying Black as their colour. 

After the second game please send the results to me ( Dave Shaw ).

6. General Notes 

  1. I am using the software Swiss Perfect ( 30 day free evaluation ) to control the  tournament. Any complaints about biased, rubbish, unfair pairings should be sent to their software department.
  2. It is always nice to have a clear winner and so the tie-break options of Progressive and Median Buchholz will be applied if needed. If that makes no difference then the winning slot will be shared. 
  3. The games will be graded with ECF Online Grades. – assuming Andy can get them to do it. We are in newish territory !
