I've been thinking of putting together a site-wide chess tournament for a while now, and the recent talk of a DDO Risk Tournament brought it up for me again.

This tournament will be extremely casual and fun, not serious or stressful. It doesn't matter your skill level, your experience, or your age, if you know how to play chess your fit to play!

As this is the first tournament of its kind, we will try some different things out, get to know what works and what doesn't, almost a guinea pig tournament.

For now, I plan to do it through Chess.com.
http://www.chess.com...

As I said before, the tournament will be extremely "laid-back", it won't be a huge time commitment, you will have plenty of time between rounds to do your chess match.

Don't worry if your rusty, or haven't played in a while, its all just for fun ;)

So if you are interested at all in this tournament, sign your name below, the more the merrier! Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions about the tournament or anything.

I used to go to tournaments all the time. Played on chess.com a lot. Recently I haven't been doing it much, but I still enjoy it.

Its not much of a time commitment at all, just a 15 minute or so block within a couple days for a chess match.

Your skill level doesnt matter for this tournament, but if you really don't have 15 minutes of free-time for a week straight, then I guess you can't sign up
