New weekend tourneys
« on: December 05, 2019, 03:03:45 PM »
I'll be running 2 new tourneys over the weekend

Saturday Sizzler - 8 board 4x2 pairs IMPs 6mins per board  will start on Sat 14 Dec 7pm UK/UTC 2pm Eastern

Serious Sunday - 1st one ran on Sun 1st Dec. I would like this to be 16 boards 4x4 MP Pairs but for the first one I cut it down to 12 bds to accommodate our Indian players. Going forward, I would like it start at 6.30 UK/UTC, 1.30 Eastern. This will also now be 6 mins per board, cut down from the 7min standard as requested by the players in the first tourney.

Please let me know what are your preferences

I have changed the time for the Sunday tourney ...

I shouldn't complain since this tourney is scheduled at a time I'm already playing ... but I always wonder why if a few players say we want to play faster it happens ... that's definitely going to favor the more advanced players (imo).  As we're a teaching club, why not give players more time to think?

Yes I hear you Charlene. If the players are all quick, the round finishes early :). We had 1 player who had connection problems last tourney, which prompted the requests to cut down the board time. I'll see how it goes this evening.
