Reminder: Round 9 of the Hivechess Tournament S12 , Friday 19h GMT

Dear chess fans!

the 9th round of S12 is played this Friday, 29th July, 19h GMT, as usual.
The current standings after 8 rounds you can find here.

After the bullet chess madness from last week we will have this week more thinking time - 7 minutes. To ensure a reasonable number of games (and lower the influence of pairing luck a little at least) the tournament will take 80 minutes!

Mode: 7+1 (7 minutes per game, 1 sec. increment per move), 80 min. arena mode with no streaks.

Tournament Link: https://lichess.org/tournament/fsWm7WxC

The price pool contains already >460 Hive!

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 and to be part in our team!
  • Every Friday is one round
  • Time mode is varying (5+0, 3+2,...)
  • 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!

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 on Friday and good luck to all!

Without berserk in a 7 minute game, you've need to write some post between moves (lol).

Great time control for berserk and slow movers; However with no end game focus no time control can help me right now :).
