The Quick Study & The Ricochet: Tuesday Night Tournaments
Our upcoming Ricochet tournaments soon to be announced for 2016. Five rounds of G/8 3 sec delay. Entry fee is just $2.00 for adults, $1.00 for 18 or under. This tournament is a lot of fun if you enjoy a quick pace and exciting finishes! Round one is a 7pm; arrive by 6:45pm or call in advance to be paired.
The Quick Study Chess Tournament series is also currently underway in Asheboro. We look forward to a rated game each week--something serious and USCF-rated. Score keeping is encouraged, but optional. We play one round per week at G/24 5 sec delay. Pairings are based loosely on Swiss System rules, but with TD discretion for modifications to enhance everyone's playing experience. Entry is FREE; $1.00 donations are accepted to help cover our rating expenses. That's $1.00 per tournament, not per round--a completely voluntary system. Action usually starts around 7:30pm, please call or email in advance since we sometimes start early.
A further explanation about tournament director modifications on the pairings. Since there are no prizes, the goal of having decent pairings will take precedence over the goal of achieving a clear winner. If a 2000 rated player shows up with no points, strict Swiss pairing may have them play a 1300. I would intervene, and try to pair them with someone 1800-up. Also, every effort will be made to avoid pairing people who ride in together.
Whether it's The Ricochet, or The Quick Study, there's rated chess in Asheboro every Tuesday! Join us! If you are running last minute, be sure to call me (336) 460-6882.
