AoPS Wiki:Chess/Chess Tournament Info

<- AoPSWiki:Chess

Currently: Accepting sign-ups!
Note: The tournament will commence when the game in the Games and Fun Factory is over! Also, this article is more updated than the information in the topic; so if there are any discrepancies, then this probably has the correct information!


Each team will consist of either 4 or 5 players. It is suggested only people who already know each other make teams of 5 people as it can be harder to communicate with 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.

Tournament Format

Depending on the amount of players and teams, there will be several rounds of Swiss, followed by single elimination for the final rounds. For the final game, 3 days will be allowed per move.
