NU.net chess tournament! **IN PROGRESS**

Post by Kirby » January 27th, 2012, 10:17 pm

So, the tournament has started! Here is the current bracket:

Image
(The Grey "Bye" players are basically nobodies who automatically lose the game, giving you a free win. They are necessary for bracket balance because there was an odd number of people who entered, and were automatically generated by the program I'm using. This might seem strange to you, but if you do the math, it's fair in the end.)

Round 1:
Maikel631 vs. Ppprre http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49881958
RaveComing vs. Raver http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49888917
TimeToE vs. Bye
DrownedinMusic5683 vs. jordesu http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49899118
Dubstep Girl vs. thecad http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49882596
Johannez691 vs. Nightcorix http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49877693

---

Round 2:

Winners:
Maikel631 vs. RaveComing
TimeToE vs. jordesu http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49952340
Bye vs. Dubstep Girl
Bye vs. Nightcorix

Losers:
Ppprre vs. Raver http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49898948
Bye vs. DrownedinMusic5683
Bye vs. thecad
Bye vs. Johannez691

---

Round 3:

Winners:
??? vs. TimeToE
Dubstep Girl vs. Nightcorix http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49903055

Losers:
Raver vs. Bye
DrownedinMusic5683 vs. Bye
thecad vs. ???
Johannez691 vs. jordesu

---

Round 4:

Winners:
??? vs. Nightcorix

Losers:
Raver vs. DrownedinMusic5683 http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=49891001
??? vs. ???

---

Round 5:

Losers:
Raver vs. ???
??? vs. Dubstep Girl

Winners will be underlined.
Remember that in double-elimination there is a winner's bracket and a loser's bracket. You must lose twice in order to be out of the competition, so if you don't win at first, don't abandon all hope.

The games should be played using Chess.com or the Chess.com Facebook app.
Once you sign up, you can ask your opponent for their username and challenge them here using the usual game options.
If you have your opponent added on Facebook, you can also do this within the app.

You are given 3 days to make each move, but games should be completed as quickly as possible.
Once you've completed your game, one person must report the winner/loser by making a post in this topic. I'll decide how to handle discrepancies once they come up, if any.

Good luck to everyone, and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

It actually work to ivite to Live Chess too. The difference between Live and online is that Live chess is faster and better. I just gotta figure out how to ivite. Should be done tomorrow or somethingg and then it will be easier to play chess without have to update.

That wouldn't work since you can only do Live Chess with special modes as far as I know and everyone's playing until checkmate in this tournament.

He needs to study and practice (although it probably wouldn't make a difference)
TimeToE, I'm going to drop Jordz a line now.

It's all fine really, I'm just saying why our bracket isn't advancing fast. Studying > Chess anyway, you can't deny that.

RC and Maikel are taking forever because Maikel made a mistake or something, TimeToE and Jordz aren't doing much better. At the same time it's good however because Raver isn't going to be here for 2 weeks.

He went on vacation, he can only use the Internet while at an Internet cafe and even then it wouldn't be for very long periods at a time. We'll probably need to wait until he comes back.

I told Maikel how we could solve his mistake in 2 moves each, it's really up to him.

Edit: we are presently restructuring the board as to how it should have been, game will continue on a more natural pace shortly
