If you haven't played any tournaments on our chess server yet, this is how it goes:

  • Registration is possible immediately before the tournament (here from 15.00 until 15.20 CET (8.00 to 8.20 pm Bangkok time). A short message to the tournament director ("join" or similar) is enough. If you have been registered, you will receive the message "You are in".
  • During the registration phase the tournament director will occasionally generate messages, either "You are registered" (if you are on the list of participants) or "You are kibitzing" (if not). In the latter case, please notify the tournament director immediately (message "join") .
  • The tournament director will start the games automatically. Please make sure to be in the playing room when the pairings are drawn, as otherwise you will not be considered by the program and miss one round.

Good luck!
