lol....didn't show up. I wasn't even sure what time it was and then the next day i saw it was at 3 a.m. Lol,as if i'd be up then
I'd suggest to make it fair for anyone that ever wants to do a chess tournament in the future is to do it as a correspondence chess match for each game. Each player has a specified number of days to move for each move (suggestion: at most 3). If, a person doesn't move in the allotted time the game is forfeited by them.
And no one should have to play someone else to see how they rank. Literally just match other players together and start the tournament. [You could even do a double elimination format.] I didn't join because the format that was presented was really strange. Making players play a live match over the internet when everyone has different time zones? Reality check.. that's not even feasible. As even mentioned by the Kangaroo.. it was 3 am for him. Real nice.
