Sunday Challenges on Tornelo in July

Come and try an online chess competitions this July on Sundays from 4pm – 6pm .. it may change your life! Then again, it may not, but it should introduce you to a world of chess that is simply amazing and fun.

To play, simple copy and paste the following links into any browser

5th July:  https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/none/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-blitz-challenge

12th July:  https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/none/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-rapid-challenge

19th July: https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/sa-chess/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-blitz-challenge–2

26th July: https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/sa-chess/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-rapid-challenge–3

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 is a 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.
