    MCC Allegro (Online)

    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/melbo...line--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/melbo...gro-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.

    The tournament link is in there twice.
    "Congratulations to all of the winners!" Of note is the Challengers division having 2.5 points between 1st and 2nd place :-)

    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 .

    It seems today's MCC Saturday Allegro is already active and I get an error when trying to register. Does this mean the event is full? Or is there a problem with Tornello?
