Showdown Field Set!

Posted: February 26th, 2010 by Daniel Rensch

OK, we are very excited about this month’s Showdown here at the ACE Chess Headquarters in Mesa, Arizona!!! Here we go:

  • We broke the tournament down into a “Sheveningen LIKE” Format, with “Swiss Style” pairings. What exaclty does that mean, and has Danny finally lost his mind??? Keep reading…
  • As with 14 players, it is impossible to break the teams down evenly into groups of 3 or 4 as we did last month, so we did the next best thing…
  • We placed all the players into teams. 2 teams of 4 players and 2 teams of 3. Players are still competing for their individual “rating class” prizes.
  • No player will play against his/her teammate during the course of the event, and the obvious team prize is PRIDE!!! :-)

Thanks again to Yermo’s genius!!!
