EvC Members:

We have decided that with the recent increase in chess playing between EvC members it would be interesting to have an "official" tournament where each player could advance through a series of games until one player (or two) came out the final victor and would be declared EvC Ultimate Chess Champion.

The site that would be used is: http://gameknot.com. If you would like to enter the tournament, please sign up with a username at that site and list it here in this thread. Tournament matchups will be announced pending adequate participation. Sign up will take place between now and this Friday. If adequate participation is had, matchups will be assembled over the weekend and announced on Monday, along with instructions on how to set up a game, take an appropriate screenshot, and other basic rules and/or regulations.

Once again, if you are interested in participating, please register at http://gameknot.com and post your registration name here before Friday of this week. Best of luck to all those who participate :).

Regards,
Jon A.
EvC Chess Council

Re: kuresu is in . . .under one condition
Don't worry, that is definitely one of the conditions. This tournament is being held for ranking in EvC chess, NOT at GameKnot. This tournament will have no affect on your member rating at GameKnot.

Would you also provide us with your member name, please?

Thanks,
Jon
EvC Chess Council

Council Members
Members:

I should probably make a post to include everyone in the following information regarding the overseeing of the tournament. The EvC Chess Council will be responsible for matching opponents and keeping track of who is to play who next. As of now, the EvC Chess Council consists of three people: Phat, Kuresu, and myself. In my opinion, we should be able to properly handle the tournament; however, I am leaving it up to the other council members to make the final decision as to whether or not they want additional people on the council.

Thanks,
Jon
EvC Chess Council

Re: kuresu is in . . .under one condition
The site rules at GameKnot prohibit using a computer to move. Anyone caught doing it will be immediately suspended from GameKnot.

I would like to make a motion for the other members of the council for the following:
"I should now say, and perhaps set this up as the first rule of the EvC tournament, that you will not only lose membership at GameKnot, but will also be immediately removed from the tournament, and possibly shamed and/or stoned by fellow members if you are found to be determining moves with any other device than your own brain. That includes people, computers, chess manuals, etc.

"Learn what you need to know now, because looking up strategies in a book during the middle of a game, will result in disqualification from the tournament."

Council members can discuss this, or vote on it. Two votes are needed to pass it. (too few concil members for all that seconding mumble jumble ;) )

Thanks,
Jon
EvC Chess Council

Re: kuresu is in . . .under one condition
I share in your optimism, but the Council can still look into the obtaining of special software that could be used if (and only if) one member called another member out for unusually expert game-play.

Re: Tournament Challenge Order
Sounds good. On a side note, Nye's a gal ;).

There are only three days per move, so the longest you can draw the game out for on one move is three days. If she wait longer than that, she will forfeit that game and you will be the winner.
