Give Me Liberty Registrations Solid

Through early Friday evening, registrations in all three prospective sections are running solid for tomorrow's five-round Give Me Liberty event.

Can still use a few more Open players but the other sections are nearing their natural maximums. Capacity for the overall tournament is 36. (TD reserves the possibility of shifting to a fourth section or any other configuration to assure good competition for the broadest array).

Where possible we attempt to honor several types of requests:
  • First Round Byes -- 1/2 point will be awarded
  • Requests to play up sections -- offered in order of the player's pre-event rating
  • Avoidance of pairing against siblings or parents -- always honored
  • Avoidance of pairing against club members -- honored in early rounds but this rule is turned off in later rounds if necessary for deciding prizes
DeKalb Chess Club is proud to host such events and we're fortunate to have found a post-Borders home at the First Congregational Church. During our first year of hosting events, we averaged 15 entrants. By the second year, we were up to 20 registrants and now, in our third year, we've had 28 and 30 players for our most recent events. Let's keep it up, folks!
