Warlight Chess Tournament: 5/4/2013 17:24:17

So recently I've been playing with Aranka some chess games to dust off my poor chess skill and we thought it'd be fun to see how many chess players are in the community (both amateur or professional). In any case we could do a warlight chess tournament in a double rr system with 15 minutes on clock (unless we get a lot of participants). So, anyone interested?

I'll join this tourney too.

Like szweningen already said - it might be interesting.

Secondly, I couldn't stand by and let him win now could I ?

Sounds fun! Though I'm a true amateur, I have never played against anyone who "really" plays.

Well szeweningen is an amateur too

And I just know the basics and how the pieces move, so you'll be all right :)

I am also a massive amateur :) but I am interested to see how much I have forgotten since when I was taught when I was younger.

I'm interested.

Aranka just knows how the pieces move and some basics? Yeah right...

Yeah and I get beaten by her more often than not, so it seems like I don't even know basics :(

Ok, so far:
szeweningen
Aranka
Qi
Henns
Luxis
Yeon
Mannerheim

If we get more people we'll need groups and stages, since double rr takes time.

I'm interested as well.
But do you have any ideas how to prevent from cheating? It's not hard to run chessmaster or so in the background.

What is Chessmaster? Is it one of the engines? Can you use it quickly? If you can't then we should do real time. I'm not the greatest of players, but I'd like either multi-day games or 5 min ones.

I am a terrible chessplayer with an elo of 1600 maximum. At one point in my life i realized i am too lazy for chess.

But i would consider losing to all of you for the fun of it.
And maybe we could organize a poker tournament while we are at it.

With 10+ minutes is sure can be used. 5 min is maybe too little time.

I like 5 min games. Blitz is pretty much the only real time chess I play.

5 min could be a good thinking time, though I personally like 15-20 min time. 5 min has the advantage that it's too little to use a chess computer program.

Yes, I tend to play 3-5 minute games (blitz). This may be to do with the fact that as I'm not the greatest of players, better players have the advantage of strategic thinking reduced by time pressure.
