OverClocked ReMix Chess League TEAM TOURNAMENT!

Recommended Posts

Another ringer? Time will tell, I suppose.
Looks like maybe. It'll be up to the team captains to decide whether to draft though.

Deadline passed, we have three players.

Anyone else up for captaincy? Uranus and JD are currently my guys, Rainman or damathacus, would you like to captain?

Frankly, I want to be on one of these guys' teams. Can we have just 3 captains this go around? I mean, I'll pick up the slack if someone has to, but I think I'd enjoy it more if it was just the three behemoths and some of us patzers making up the teams.

It IS just three this go-around. I just mentioned the two of you because I thought you had shown interest.

Some keys:

Teammates may not watch your game, but they may coach you from AIM or something. For this reason, use 10/10 clocks in order to cut down on the impact of teammate coaching. Undo Turn is STILL not allowed.

Reports are always going to be a +1/-1 swing. The divide is the same as a win vs. a loss, but the team not involved ends up in the middle.

No bypasses. The Rusty Buckets, for playing four less games, are given four "bye" points to offset the advantage of playing more games.

If you have problems, you should try and petition your captain for advice - but I'm usually the best source as well. Captains are marked with a © in the standings above.

The Rusty Bucket is a Tavern in Columbus, where JD lives. The Nordic Wegie is a cutesy term for the breed of two of my cats. The Married Woman is what Margo is.

Margo is still looking for a team name :P

Start playing now, and the last moment for games will be MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5TH @ 11:59 PM (pacific time). Super Bowl Sunday should never be the end of an OCRCL week.

Mm. I like our chances.

I have to say, I think Kamoh did a remarkable job of splitting up the talent so that, while one player might have a small edge over his/her two opponents, across teams, the advantages are negligible.

Yeah but I didn't do that. You can thank your team captains for somehow putting themselves in the 1, 2, and 3 slots (I put myself 1 because I figured the weakest player might be 14...which was true). This is purely coincidental to a certain degree - the entire schedule is made simple but can be horribly complex - later tonight I will undoubtedly be breaking down my team's matchups and seeing where we need points if we're not gonna get them, and try to give reachable goals to all my players. For example, my goal is 10 points (3-0-1).

Okay! First games done. I didn't do super poorly, but a bad choice in the first game and a missed fork in the second lost it for me both times. Sorry guys.

Rainman DX vs. Johnderrilll, 0-2.

I'm going to make it very very difficult for JD or Keegan or Uranus to basically dictate the entire match out to their teammates.

Where theres a will theres a way. =P

Just a quick vote here:

Would you guys like to do this tournament for a second week, next week? We'd go Tuesday 6th to Tuesday 13th (no games on V-day for those of us lucky enough).

Works for me.

Edit: 2 wins against amazchess. This new guy is pretty good, i just hope i didnt scare him off.=( Just that I was all pumped up after my games with Keegan.

yeah, talk about instant trial-by-fire for him. But I expected it - I think because his AIM sn had chess in it and everything I kinda lofted him at high expectations. He probably considers this a major challenge (I hope) and we'll see more out of him in the future.

In other news, The Rusty Buckets are dynastic. I may dock them their bye points.

I'm afraid I may have inadvertently taken advantage of Amazgr8's incapacitated state for our first game. He was pretty tired, and I didn't take him seriously just how tired he was - but he slipped a little, and I ran away with our first. We'll finish up later when he's feeling up to it.

Rainman DX vs. Amazgr8, 1-0.

Come on team, we can do better!

Bahamut wins 2-0 vs. Dama in some close matches, although in both games tricks by me won out. Here's the second game which illustrates one of them:
