We did this thing on another forum I'm in where we setup an online chess tourney on chess.com... I'm not sure if there are a lot of people into chess here, but maybe we could try this out?

If we get a good number of players (more or less 10 will do) I'll setup the tournament. My user name there is: lastdodobird.

Just sign-up on chess.com and post your user id here so that you can be included in the invite.

If anything needs to be clarified, ask your questions here.

If you've already signed up and waiting for the tourney to start, go ahead and explore the site and play online games as much as you wish. I think I'm playing 15 simultaneous matches right now. (I'm not good, BTW)

Don't worry about not having the time since the matches on chess.com are usually on a 1 day/move or 3 days/move basis. So being on a bad connection or busy schedule shouldn't matter much.

But that doesn't mean that the matches go on at a snail's pace. 1 day/3 days per move is just the maximum amount of time you have to make a move (presumably so that people in different time zones can compete; and, people who are relatively busy can also play) - if you and your opponent both are online at the same time and aren't doing anything else, you can carry on with your match at a regular pace.

Anyway I'm rambling on here.
