AoPS Wiki:Chess/Chess Tournament Info
- Currently: Accepting sign-ups!
Each team will consist of 2-4 players. This may sound unfair at first, but really isn't. The more players a team has, the harder it is to agree upon a move. This is why it is suggested only people who already know each other make teams of 3 or more people. Players can agree between themselves and create their own teams. Others who haven't made their own teams will be randomized into teams.
During the tournament, a team cannot request to have another player added to their team unless one of their players cannot participate anymore. Players cannot switch teams, so choose wisely if you pick your own teams.
A team must post a move within 2 days after the other team's move. Each time a team fails to do so (unless there is a good reason), a warning will be issued. 5 warnings will result in disqualification.
The use of computers, chess programs, and other devices that give your team an advantage is not allowed. This rule cannot be strictly enforced, but hopefully people will play fairly as this tournament is for fun only.
Depending on the amount of players and teams, there will be several rounds of knockout games. For the final game, 3 days will be allowed per move. The losers of the semi-finals can choose to play for 3rd and 4th places.
Before signing up, please make sure you will be able to participate. I_like_pie will accept sign ups via post in the original topic, PM, or email.
