Hi Again Everyone . . !
Our on-line Contra Costa Chess Club now has at least 38 members! Everyone can join our free on-line tournaments at www.chess.com
Our next tournament will be this Friday evening, April 10, 2020. Here's the link if you need one: https://www.chess.com/live#t=1184761
Make sure you've clicked 'JOIN' once you're at Live Chess and you've clicked "Tournaments" and selected "Second CC Chess Club 10 Minutes".
Make sure you've Joined within the hour (6:15pm and 7:15pm PDT), because that's when the site accepts entries, and the matches begin promptly at 7:15pm.
Note: The tournament is set for 5 rds Swiss, with a Time Control of 10 minutes per side. Based on last night's experience, few if any went the full 20 minutes (except perhaps for a well fought draw!). They go reasonably fast, don't they.
Also note: It takes a minimum of 10 players to join for the tournament to go 5 rounds. If less than 10 join, the tournament ends after only 3 rounds.
Results are posted on the Club's room after the tournament, for all to see! Just go to our Club's room site and click on live tournaments, then click on the tournament name. Last night's first try at all this wound up with only 3 rounds, with Chris B. finishing on top with 3 wins! Every player finished with at least 1 point ! Latecomers can join but of course will be at a disadvantage, able to play only the next game(s).
Any one can be there just as an observer, by the way. Any questions or need more info, let me or John S. know, thanks, have fun, don't be late !!
