Reminder: Round 2 of the Hivechess Tournament, tomorrow Friday, 20h GMT
Dear chess fans,
the second round of season 9 is played tomorrow Friday 5th Nov, 20h GMT. Please check your local time - due to to change to winter time, it might be one hour later in your area compared to last week!
The current standings after the first round you can look up here.
Time Mode: 4+1 (4 minutes per game, 1 sec. increment), 60 min. arena mode, no streaks
Tournament Link: https://lichess.org/tournament/RlKPZwS8
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.
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 9 rounds and the tournament points are summed up. All Hivechess-related post rewards are pooled and 90% go to the price pool (PP). The tournament winner will get 25 Hive bonus, a unique NFT trophy and the rest of the PP is divided among all players according to the number of tournament points achieved, but only if a player has participated at least 3 times (if <3 games are played in a round it will be not counted)!
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 or in the Lichess chat!
If you have not yet joined our team in Lichess, please do it here, so that you can participate (required for the Swiss tournaments only).
Please share this announcement among your (chess) friends and colleagues!
The more participate, the more fun! And maybe some are even interested to join Hive and it´s Chess Community?
See you tomorrow and good luck to all!

(just let me know if you don´t want to get the mentions)
By the way, after 7 (of 11) rounds of the 2021 FIDE Grand Swiss Tournament currently conducted in Riga, Alireza Firouzja is the sole leader with 5,5 out of 7! Amazing performance by the 18y old so far! Will the top ranked player Fabiano Caruana be able to catch up??
