Second Saturdays Chess.com Tournament Info

When: Every second Saturday of the month at 10:00 AM Central

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

Registration: Registration begins at 9:00 AM on each second Saturday--and not one second sooner--as this is how tournaments function on Chess.com. Just go to this tournament link between 9:00 and 9:59:59 AM on each second Saturday of the month.

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

Format: Swiss - You will play 4 rounds.

Time Control: G/10+5 - Each player will have 10 minutes to make his/her own moves and 5 seconds of time added to their clock before each move. This can help prevent losses due to time-outs. Total tournament time is 2 hours or less.

Ratings: This will affect only your Chess.com Rapid 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.
