In light of the 5 day lockdown, MCC will be holding a free online Allegro on the 13th of February for any player who wants to take part.

Register here: https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/melbourne-chess-club/events/mcc-allegro-online--34/lobby

Tournament Details:

Divisions: choose from:
Premier (1600+)
Challengers (1200 - 1600)
Minor (Below 1200)
If your rating is above 1500 you may choose to play in the Premier. If you are above 1100 you may choose to play in the Challengers. If you win a division then you may choose to play in the higher division. We will use a local Tornelo rating, but if your ACF or FIDE is higher, we may use that to put you in a division.

Time Control: 13 minutes + 2 seconds per move

Forfeit Policy: If a player does not connect to their game 5 minutes after the round starts, the Arbiter will start your clock.

How to register and play

Step 1: Login/Signup to Tornelo and join the online tournament. Use the link below:

https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/melbourne-chess-club/events/mcc-allegro-online--34

On the day log in to Tornelo and go to the link above. Look for the big green Open Zoom room button to video conference with the arbiter. The button will open this zoom room:

https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85707927698

IMPORTANT: When you join the Zoom meeting please put in YOUR name so the arbiter easily knows who is on the video.

Please try to login about 1.45pm ready for a 2pm start. If the Arbiter does not see you in the zoom meeting you will not be paired in the first round. Note that your presence in the Zoom meeting is essential and is equivalent to being at the club. It will enable you to properly participate in the community including chat.

You must be logged in to play online games. Then just wait for the arbiter to post Round 1 pairings.

Ethics
Having an arbiter and a video meeting means it will run pretty close to the same format as the normal Allegro. Rounds will run every half hour and local ratings will be preserved in Tornelo.


We want to keep the community chess feel in the tournaments.
You cannot be anonymous. You must provide you first and last name in full.
No cheating. You are part of a community that relies on you doing the right thing. If you want to cheat then go somewhere else.
No cheating, even for fun. We don't imagine that people will cheat. But just in case you think it is fun to troll somebody, don't as it puts the experience at risk for everybody.
Parents should make their kids aware of the dangers of cheating and supervise their kids. Parents must supervise their kids if asked.
You must provide an email and phone number that we can contact you on. For juniors this must be the contact of one of your parents.
Arbiter's decision is final as per normal Allegro
Be forgiving as we work things out.



Fair Play

You are not permitted to use a computer engine, book (or other person) to assist you with your game play.
You must be in the Zoom room. The arbiter has the right to ask you to turn your video on and share your screen. If you do not do this when asked, the arbiter has the right to not pair you for the next round or remove your results from the tournament.
You are not permitted to watch streaming of your game while playing.
We ask you to refrain from public accusations of cheating as this undermines the tournament and arbiters authority. Suspicions should be brought privately to the arbiter or organiser so we can deal with it as per our policy.
It is up to the tournament arbiters and organisers to make fair-play decisions. Rather than being accused of cheating, your results won’t be accepted.
Tornelo has round-by-round analysis tools to help arbiters monitor fair play.
We may use independent tools to verify results before giving out any prizes.
No talking about games in progress in the open chat.

Nope. Can play in higher division if permitted by the arbiter so I guess they are trying. A couple of the players in the ''wrong division'' are my chess students that I asked to enter higher divisions for better practice :).

So if I want to play 1200-1600 and I'm rated 983 I should wait till the zoom call is up and then try to convince the arbiter before registering on tornelo right?

You can enter that section now...then convince the arbiter (if required) not to move you to the lower section.

Thx, Daniel
I must say that the game against you was probably the best out of all the long games I had today even though I could not win. This was the only game where neither player appeared to make blunders or miss something obvious.

I am sorry, Michael, it seems you posted the link to Online Allegro played on 24/07.
Here is the correct link:

P.S. I kindly ask all players of Allegro to use for registration your full first name and last name only. We don't allow to play in the club event nicknamed players as it is not possible in an over-the-board tournament in MCC. Any player with a nickname in the players' list will be withdrawn from the tournament before the start.

MCC Allegro (Online - 21st of August 2021)
In light of the lockdown, MCC will be holding a free online Allegro on the 21st of August for any player who wants to take part.

https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/melbourne-chess-club/events/mcc-allegro-2021-online---5/summary

Tournament Details:

Divisions: choose from:
Premier (1600+)
Challengers (1200 - 1600)
Minor (Below 1200)
If your rating is above 1500 you may choose to play in the Premier. If you are above 1100 you may choose to play in the Challengers. If you win a division then you may choose to play in the higher division. We will use a local Tornelo rating, but if your ACF or FIDE is higher, we may use that to put you in a division.

Time Control: 13 minutes + 2 seconds per move

Time: Approximately 2-6pm

Forfeit Policy: If a player does not connect to their game 5 minutes after the round starts, the Arbiter will start your clock.

Contact: Alexei Khamatgaleev 0426 731 726

How to register and play

Step 1: Login/Signup to Tornelo and join the online tournament. Use the link below:

https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/melbourne-chess-club/events/mcc-allegro-2021-online---5/summary

On the day log in to Tornelo and go to the link above. Look for the big green Open Zoom room button to video conference with the arbiter. The button will open this zoom room:

https://us02web.zoom.us/j/7046456335...UvVGtPZFN6Zz09

IMPORTANT: When you join the Zoom meeting please put in YOUR name so the arbiter easily knows who is on the video.

Please try to login about 1.45pm ready for a 2pm start. If the Arbiter does not see you in the zoom meeting you will not be paired in the first round. Note that your presence in the Zoom meeting is essential and is equivalent to being at the club. It will enable you to properly participate in the community including chat.

You must be logged in to play online games. Then just wait for the arbiter to post Round 1 pairings.

Ethics
Having an arbiter and a video meeting means it will run pretty close to the same format as the normal Allegro. Rounds will run every half hour and local ratings will be preserved in Tornelo.

We want to keep the community chess feel in the tournaments.
You cannot be anonymous. You must provide your first and last name in full.
No cheating. You are part of a community that relies on you doing the right thing. If you want to cheat then go somewhere else.
No cheating, even for fun. We don't imagine that people will cheat. But just in case you think it is fun to troll somebody, don't as it puts the experience at risk for everybody.
Parents should make their kids aware of the dangers of cheating and supervise their kids. Parents must supervise their kids if asked.
You must provide an email and phone number that we can contact you on. For juniors, this must be the contact of one of your parents.
Arbiter's decision is final as per normal Allegro
Be forgiving as we work things out.


Fair Play
You are not permitted to use a computer engine, book (or other person) to assist you with your game play.
You must be in the Zoom room. The arbiter has the right to ask you to turn your video on and share your screen. If you do not do this when asked, the arbiter has the right to not pair you for the next round or remove your results from the tournament.
You are not permitted to watch streaming of your game while playing.
We ask you to refrain from public accusations of cheating as this undermines the tournament and arbiters' authority. Suspicions should be brought privately to the arbiter or organiser so we can deal with it as per our policy.
It is up to the tournament arbiters and organisers to make fair-play decisions. Rather than being accused of cheating, your results won’t be accepted.
