Reminder: Round 2 of the Hivechess Tournament S12 , Friday, 19h GMT

Dear chess fans!

the second round of S12 is played this Friday 10th Jun., 19h GMT, as usual.
The current standings after the first round you can find here.

This time it will be a 5+0 Swiss mode over 7 rounds. There is no increment, all the time is given at the beginning, so take that into consideration to prevent time dramas!

In order to participate, you need to be part of the Lichess team called "The Blockchain Chess Team". If you haven´t yet: PLEASE JOIN HERE!

Mode: 5+0 (5 minutes per game, no increment), 7 rounds Swiss mode

Tournament Link: https://lichess.org/swiss/I3S788WQ

RULES

  • For Hivers, Steemians, Blurters, noise.cashers and all others!
  • Players of all skill levels are welcome, from newbies to experts, you just need a free Lichess-account!
  • Every Friday is one round
  • Time mode is varying (5+0, 3+2,...), rated, berserking allowed (except in Swiss mode)
  • The winner of each round gets the number of points equaling the number of players in that round, the second ranked one point less and so forth until the one on the bottom of the table who gets one point. In order to be counted, at least 3 games must have been played.
  • Occasionally a round may be divided into 2 skill classes
  • In case two players have the same number of points, the one who played less rounds is first. If that is equal too, then the average tournament performance decides.
  • PAYOUT: This season goes over 10 rounds and the tournament points are summed up. All Hivechess-related post rewards are pooled and 70% go to the price pool (PP). The tournament winner will get 40 Hive as bonus, the runner-up 15, and the rest of the PP is divided among all players equally (30%) and according to the number of tournament points achieved (70%). 50% participation is required in order to qualify for the prices.
  • There will be a special price of 15 Hive for the highest performance in relation to the own rating (counted by averaging the rating after the first and the last round)
  • If I don´t know your Hive username, I can´t consider you in the final rankings, so please let me know your Hive name in the comments!

Greetings @stayoutoftherz ! How has everything gone? As with my colleagues in the ChessBrothers league, I have not been able to participate in your events for academic reasons... I hope you are leading the sporting contest in a chess way at a great level... A hug and greetings from Puerto La Cruz, an eastern corner of Venezuela

Saludos @stayoutoftherz ! ¿Como ha marchado todo? Al igual que con los compañeros de la liga ChessBrothers, no he podido participar en tus eventos por motivos académicos... Espero esten llevando la contienda deportiva de una manera ajedrecistica a un gran nivel... Un Abrazo y Saludos desde Puerto La Cruz, un rinconcito oriental de Venezuela
