With the Candidates still going on (somehow), thought it would be good to have a general chess thread and this seems like the place to do it. Might fall flat.

Here's the Candidates scores after Round 6:

...and with the competition suspended, here's where we are at the halfway point:

Why not start an online BigFooty competition?

I have no idea how chess tournaments work but I'd be happy to promo something, put up a prize and so on.
Id love to but would there be the interest I guess. From a search not much discussion on these forums. It would be the right time though with the tournament being suspended.

I think there'd be a lot with interest that don't talk about it on a footy forum.

I had a look around and I could put up a BigFooty club on Chess.com. We could gauge interest by how many people join?

That’s a great idea, especially as I have a chess.com account (haven’t used it for years!). Very happy to manage/arrange things if there’s enough interest.

Thank you so much for this!
So I will set up an account with a club.

I will promote it, and see what response we get.

If we get a good response, we can set up a tournament. If not, let the club run for a bit and see if it builds up. It's like $4 a month so no biggie.

I hope I can give you some sort of admin access to start/run a tournament? I honestly don't know how it works and, while I know how to play, I don't play Chess much so I wouldn't be in the tournament.

It’s actually super simple to set up a tournament on chess.com, once you have a club.

Looking at the roles you’d be a Super Admin (https://support.chess.com/article/336-what-are-the-different-club-roles). Then you can make me whichever of the roles you wish (Coordinator, Admin or Super Admin) and I can take it from there.
