ORCL - The OCR Chess League is Back! --- September/October Tournament

Recommended Posts

Tonight @ 11:59 pm EDT will be the end of registration.

If two more players join in, the qualification box will be increased from 6 players to 7, so if you have friends this is the time to bring them in - you have about 7 hours.

Registration is now over - no new players are permitted to join. Tavernero_Rudd, if he can get his act together, is still an available opponent (but has refused to get AIM or update his profile with an AIM screen name), which brings the total to 19 players. Excluding him, you have, potentially, 34 games to play. For those of you who haven't gotten any points, that means that your

final total COULD be 102 points, but just playing as much as you possibly can would get you into the current top 6 (with an 0-0-34 record, 34 points beats out the next closest 33).

I've always been one to encourage people to play, but this is always on you. Salaxzar and I both have 22 games played, and it shows. He's totally dominating, and I'm securely in the top 6 with a losing record.

You all have one week (until the stroke of October in New York City) to finish this phase, so good luck and may the best chesser not necessarily win unless he proves it.

Four more games. Helmholz is a solid player, and his record doesn't reflect his ability.

Rainman DX vs. Helmholz, 0-2.

Rainman DX vs. GlitchyKeegan, 0-2.

Rainman, I'm going to cockblock your sleazy attempt at getting into the Top 6.

Rainman DX vs. Rau25dr, 0-2.

Rainman DX vs. Bahamut, 0-2.

So, I won vs Rainman 2-0, and lost 1 vs. Rau25DR

However, I motion for RAU25DR to be banned from the chess league due to incredibly poor sportsmanship - I was beaten fair and square, but the incredibly blatant poor manners and a piss poor attempt at justification of those manners combined make for a player who is not mature enough to play chess in a community such as OCR. I face enough stress from pushing myself in a tennis club & league, as well as my graduate studies in mathematics to deal with people who, quite frankly, are highly likely not older than 14.

That's partly my fault, baha, since I played him before and treated him badly for lols. Of course it's his fault for not reading the rules aheads of time. But still, hopefully he reads this and does himself a better things.

EDIT: Keegan can vouch for my very fucky mood.

Still, the way him and his friend acted was out of line for any decent human being. Rainman can attest to that.

Edit: In any case, I refuse to play someone like that a second time unless there's massive convincing that he is mature enough for the internet.

InternetS. And lol at the tag-teaming friend action, I'll take it under consideration.

Maybe a cheat? Probably not I was just going for 1 point each both games :P
