Team ChampionshipsEdit

So, let's start with our first and hopefully not the last event – ChessHere Team Championships.

First of all, I present the preliminary draft of the Tournament Rules (click on the link).

ApplicationEdit

To apply, you need to send Amos the following information via private message:

  • Team name;
  • Squad name (can be the same as teams or different, in case you apply several squads);
  • Board 1 player handle and rating;
  • Board 2 player handle and rating;
  • Board 3 player handle and rating;
  • Board 4 player handle and rating;
  • Contact persons handle.

Take a look what information other teams supplied when they applied.

Rules in ShortEdit

1) ChessHere Teams each nominate one or several 4 player squads for the Tournament;

2) All the squads are divided into groups of six squads;

3) The groups are called Divisions and are organized according to the average ratings of the squads. The higher the rating, the higher the Division the squad plays in;

4) In every Division four tournaments are played with six players in each tournament – one tournament for the 1st boards of that Divisions squads; tournament for 2nd boards boards etc.;

5) After all the tournaments are finished, squads place in the Division is determined by the sum of points accumulated by all the members of the particular squad. If the points are equal, the result of squads 1st board is the first tie-break.;

6) The two best squads of that Division advance to a higher division, 3rd-4th place finishers remain in that Division; squads placed in the 5th and 6th places are eliminated to lower Division.

Rules are under revision (including grammatical and style) and I will be glad to hear your suggestions and improvements. Feel free to edit the rules right here (that's what wiki's are for!)! Hopefully we will manage to come up with detailed rules soon.

If you have questions visit the Forum discussion thread or contact Amos on ChessHere.com.

You may want to take a look at an illustrative example that explains the idea.
