However, things will be better in the future as I will update this blog more often with fresh content. The first stept is a weekly video feature with chess related videos. I have already uploaded posts for the next two mondays so I can keep my promise here ;-)
Other than that I am still looking for volunteers who would like to write blog posts here. Anything goes as long as it is chess related. Teamleague updates and a weekly chess puzzle feature would be a nice start I think. So if you want help out, contact me!
Bonus points for everyone who can point out the opening and variation played in this game :-)
I will split the players into to groups:
Group 1 = All Group 1st´s 3 Players
Group 2 = the Rest (all 2nd´s and the 2 best 3rd´s) 5 Players
After that i will randomly assign to one Group1 Player an opponent from Group2 until there is no Group1 Player left. The remaining 2 Group 2 Players will be paired against each other.
I think i couldnt express myself more complicated :) After that, all pairings will be assigned randomly
Note: The playoff is deathmatch mode. If you lose you´re out. Colors are assigned randomly. In case of a draw, there is a rematch with reversed colors.
The final will be at least 2 games, first player to lead with more than one game difference is the new Monkey Champ!
See for the tournament table.
There are 2 games against each other, with different colors. The top 2 of each group advance into the playoffs, as well as the 2 best group 3rds. In the playoffs its 1 game with random color. If theres a draw, its a rematch with colors reversed. The final match mode is not decided yet...
After the tournament we will need everyone to give a vote for the best/beautiest game played.
Once you finished a game, both players are required to send me the PGN files of the game to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lets rock !
