and register to play in either the Adult, Junior or Novice/Beginner event. It costs $5 for Juniors and $10 for Adults and you pay by credit card when you register.
And then, at 3:45pm the Lobby is open and you simply login. You can enter late if necessary and play fewer games, it may depend on what you have on Sunday! You will be paired with an opponent and each player will have 10 minutes for the game if it is a Rapid event or 5 minutes if it isa Blitz and then you play your best – no help from anyone or anything! – and you play 5, 6 or 7 games depending on how quickly the tournaments go.
The Tornelo program provides the board and the clock and once you get used to it, you will find it is very easy. It is not a knockout tournament and after each round you will be paired with someone on, or close to, the same score.
There are small prizes in all the events (and yes, Juniors can play in the Adult group if they would like to! but not vice-versa!) and beginners and novices are very welcome to play in the special Novice Open.
