T58 is Underway!

T58 is Underway!

7 section titles are up for grabs, with 51 teams taking part.

Participants in the Polgar section should note the unusual schedule caused by the difficulties in pairing a 5-team section. a 5-round single round-robin will be played, with each team having one bye. There will then be a one week break to allow games to be completed, followed by a 'position round', where the first placed team in the standings will play the fourth placed team, while second plays third, while the last placed team sits out. Colours for these matches will be the opposite of the teams' previous meeting. After this, Polgar will have a playoff between first and second placed teams, as per all other sections.

There follows a re-cap of the previous reminders:

New players are encouraged to read the Player's Handbook, which can be found under the Documents tab at Most importanty, remember to set your password via FICS, using the command "tell teamleague set password", and start all teamleague games with "tell teamleague play".

Game negotiations must take place in the Game Forum, where a portal will appear when you are paired with an opponent. Please use server times when making offers (using the 24 hour clock is also preferred), and make at least 3 initial offers on more than one day. Also, to avoid confusion, all offers should be made in server time, which can always be seen on FICS by using the "date" command.

Questions are always welcome in channel 101.
