First Fridays Chess.com Tournament Info

When: Every first Friday of the month at 7:30 PM Central

Where: Online at: chess.com/club/westport-chess-club-of-kc-mo

Registration: Registration begins at 6:30 PM on each first Friday--and not one second sooner--as this is how tournaments function on Chess.com. Just go to this tournament link between 6:30 and 7:29:59 PM on each first Friday of the month.

Eligibility: There are 2 requirements to be eligible for our tournament:

Format: Swiss - You will play 5 rounds. Total tournament time should be roughly 1 hour.

Time Control: G/5+2 - Each player will have 5 minutes to make his/her own moves and 2 seconds of time added to their clock before each move. This can help prevent losses due to time-outs.

Ratings: This will affect only your Chess.com Blitz rating. (No, this will not affect your USCF rating.)

Cost: FREE

Prizes: As there is no entry fee, there are no monetary awards to be given. However, the top 3 finishers will receive a virtual medal from Chess.com.

Rules of note: This is the same as a live, OTB tournament, so no outside sources may be used. Chess.com has a solid algorithm to detect cheating, and now every game is checked immediately upon completion.
