Since the Braingle Chess Ladder is biased towards whoever has spent ten million dollars on the game, this competition is being hosted. Chess games will be played here, and a double elimination bracket will be used to determine the winner. Another single elimination bracket will be used to determine rankings beyond fourth place.

I will be the first to sign up.

Rules:

All chess games will be played using Braingle's chess game.
If the match is not played, its results will be determined using a RNG.
Matches are best of 3.
A double elimination bracket, combined with another single elimination bracket, will determine places.
To sign up, simply post here saying that you want to sign up.

Sign-Ups:

1. extremeblueness
2. dfamina
3. Smithy
4. sciencesteven
5. SaraGrace
6. MDCTeasers
7. pyro
8. max318

Here's the round 0 matches:

I think this ought to be in the Games forum, but it makes no difference to me. Sign me up.

I hope enough active chess players see this, it's been several years since we've had a tournament here.

As Bobo suggested, I've moved this to Games. If you want to recruit from outside the usual games pool you can use the Classified Ads thread in GD.

And I'll sign up too, please.

I know what my personality is. I don't need a silly quiz to tell me.

Does everyone just challenge each other?

Yes, everyone just challenges each other.

added to the list.

Hopefully we'll end up with an even number of competitors (preferably eight or 16).

I am now an active chess player.

To become active, all you have to do is click the "Play next available" button. Unless you want to play that person, or that person is the person you're supposed to challenge, you can just hit the "Concede game" button inside the game.

Just to note, I'm already playing MDC, and unless you want it to count, that game isn't for this tournament. So, I'll re-challenge him once a slot opens up.

Also, I'm assuming that timing out of a chess game will count as a loss in this competition.

You two can decide whether or not to count it between the two of you.

And yes, timing out counts as a loss. Any valid form of a loss counts as a loss. Draws count as ties.

I'll leave it up to him. If he doesn't move in two more days, the game is lost. Otherwise, we still have a little ways to go before the game is finished.
