Originally posted by mwmiller When time is expired, games still in progress would count against both players.
just a thought...
Another way to do it would be that when the 24 hour period expires, the player who had spent least time idle would win the match. So, if a move is posted at 11:00 and the opponent moves at 11:15, that is 15 minutes towards their idle time... This would encourage speedy moving.
The weekend version would work fine!
The tournament should have the start time stated (in RHP time) as well as the finishing time.
Players should get points for wins, draws, and moves made (I don't know how that would work, but something like that because if the player would stall the game because he or she is loosing, then they should not be awarded a draw).
One way to accomplish that is to award a point for a unfinished game, two for a loss, three for a draw, four for a win and ZERO points for a T/O loss!
