    Would anyone be interested in doing a tournament in an afternoon realtime? I could run a tourney if anyone is interested.

    Everyone interested would have to agree on a time limit. We could hold a blitz or G/30 swiss , or a round robin. The tournament could last for a couple of days if need be. Just thought I would throw it out there, for those who like instant gratification. I know that I could do five games in an after noon, but everyone would need to be johny on the spot.


    Ravello the smart ass.

    You need to be more specific on the time zone you define as afternoon. I live in the UK my afternoon is your morning :-)

    I tried (am still trying?) to run a tournament on Uchess and its is hard work. I had a group of 3, one from SA, one from the US and one from Austrailia - it is a logistical nightmare.

    I can set up a standard time as a median. I have a clock running on my web site. http://home.earthlink.net/~theamericlan/ It would be easy to just set a time using one standard by saying that the tournament will start when the clock says.......
    If it was say 10:00am in the us it would be early afternoon in the uk. It is just one of the small details to be worked out, just like any other tourney I guess. The time and date would need to be set up far in advance (possibly a monthly tournament) It would be five rounds (five games total) Time limit could be what works for everyone. It could span over 2 weekends for an hour.
    I think it is doable. You need people who will show up. I can do the pairings on my program pretty swiftly (about 2 minuts depending on how many are playing once the initial data is entered in advance.).


    If we could set a time and date for about three weeks in advance I think it could work. No problem.

    I need a minimum of eight players.
