Re: YLCET - What's the next tournament?

Any other takers for Chess960 over a regular chess tournament?

Re: YLCET - What's the next tournament?

I agree, I think we'll go back to the 60 mins + 10to30sec TC.
We'll also likely leave penalties out of it for engine updates mid-tournament.

Any more takers for a blitz tournament next? Perhaps 15+10?

Re: YLCET - What's the next tournament?

So it sounds like 60+30 time control is ok. And so far some want top 3 to continue playing while others want 4-5 or 8. I think it should be top 3 unless the developer of the 4th+ engine wants to give us the latest development version, such as Fire for example. More than 3 engines though would decide...

Re: YLCET - What's the next tournament?

Personally I like long time controls. Would be interesting to have a thematic tourney: for example, French Winawer or Classical Sicilian. You could pick some interesting opening lines (I can suggest some). --Jon We are currently running a thematic tourney, the SuperFinal X3 all with KGA. Thanks for...

YLCET - What's the next tournament?

We are looking to see what you, the viewers, would like to see for the next YLCET tournament, so perhaps I'll start it off with the following questions: 1) Rather than a ~ 100 game tournament followed by a ~ 100 game Super Final, what if we put in a Semi-Final stage in between that? 2) For the past ...

Re: YLCET Super X3 finals starting shortly

I think just about any book will be more drawish than the SALC opposite kings book and with a time control of 90' + 10" now you can be sure the draw rate will not be in the 60%'ish range.
