    Chesschat tournament 7

    Hello all prospective tournament entrants and interested parties,

    With only one game remaining in the previous tournament and that game looks like going for a while, I think it is time to start the formal discussions and collection of entries for the next tournament.

    Entries:

    Dilly boy
    Garrett
    Alexrules01

    Rules

    Time control:

    The time control is 30 days plus 3 days per move. This works exactly like an over the board fischer time control, in that a player receives an initial 30 days and will receive an extra 3 days for every move you make.

    A player must also make one move in each individual remaining game per seven days.

    If a player requires some extra 'holiday' time, then you will need to contact me before you time out to request this time. It is not retrospective. There is a maximum of seven days allowed.

    This will be the first tournament on here which has used this time control, so I would not be surprised if there are some teething problems along the way.
    Databases/opening books and other assistance:

    Engine assistance and endgame tablebases can not be used. Opening books are fine. Each person is playing as an individual, so getting advice from other people is forbidden.
    Format:

    If more than 6 entries: Single round robin, with order of entry determining seed number
    If equal to or less than 6 entries: Double round robin, with order of entry determining seed number
    If Boris and/or Sunshine enter, their games will start after their last game finishes from the previous tournament. Of course they can start earlier if they wish to.

    Hmmmm, is the one move a week rule still active? Sounds like a player can make some moves and when losing just "let the flag fall" .

    Some opening books play entire games with key gambits and ideas played right through to the end of their conclusion - including ideas 5 moves and more deep.

    Where is the point in beating a friend this way?

    I vote: Trash this rule!

    I disagree, this is a good way to learn openings.

    Gunner should note that database searches and personal books (win with the tromposky) are legal as they are considered public.

    ps- I'm using no assistence at all for my colle game with gunner

    I thought virtually all CC tournaments, even those that banned computers rigorously, allowed use of books on openings.

    Now this is silly. Consulting anything is assistance.

    FWIW, I will never be party to a corro game where consulting books, dbs, other people's games and similar is involved. What. Is. The. Point?

    Carry on! I'm sure you will.

    I have to agree .
    I like the idea we are playing in a tournament hall albeit a virtual one.

    just imagine an OTB game with opening books open next to the board.
