Reminder: Round 5 of the Hivechess Tournament S15 , Friday 19h GMT

Dear chess fans!

we are already approaching halftime of S15, crazy, isn´t it?
The 5th round is played tomorrow Friday, 31th Mar., at the usual time, but in Europe we are now on summer time, so for people outside of Europe it might be one hour earlier.

The current standings after 4 rounds you can find here.

It is Swiss time again! Mode: 3+1 (3 minutes per game, 1 sec. increment), 9 rounds Swiss

Tournament Link:

The price pool contains already app. 349 Hive!


  • Players of all skill levels are welcome, from newbies to experts, you just need a free Lichess-account and join our team in Lichess here (password is "Hive")!
  • Every Friday is one round.
  • Time mode is varying (5+0, 3+2, 2+1,...), sometimes Swiss, sometimes maybe Chess960 (Fischer Random).
  • 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 (i.e. the Lighteye-scoring). In order to be counted, at least 3 games must have been played.
  • 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: The tournament points of the 10 rounds are summed up. 70% of all Hivechess-related post rewards go to the price pool (PP). The tournament winner will get 25 Hive, the runner-up 20 and the third 10 Hive bonus. The rest of the PP is divided among all players equally (40%) and according to the number of tournament points achieved (60%). Participation in 4 out of the 10 rounds is required in order to qualify for the prices.
  • There will be a special price of 5 Hive for the highest performance in relation to the own rating (counted by averaging the rating after the first and the last round, if at least 6 rounds are played).
  • There will be a special price of 5 Hive for the highest gain in rating points during the course of the season (if at least 6 rounds are played).
  • If I don´t know your Hive username, you won´t be considered for prices, so please let me know your Hive name in the comments! Community or badge accounts can participate but are not qualified for prices! Only individuals can get prices.

(just let me know if you don´t want to get the mentions)



Hoffentlich verpeile ich es nicht wieder.^^


Stell´ Dir doch einfach einen Wecker 😉



Zum Aufstehen nach beliebiger Wahl brauche ich schließlich auch keinen Wecker.

Viel mehr, ritualisiere ich weiter meinen Tag und hab es dann irgendwann genauso drin. Das ist wie Training, nur dauert es bei mir ewig und erfordert Harmonie beim Rest.

Habe das erste mal das Gefühl, das ich sowas hin bekommen könnte sogar noch.^^

Auf jeden Fall. Bis heute Abend.^^ :-D
