RULES FOR NEW LADDER COMPETITION

1. I determined the initial ladder positions on Mon 27 July 2020 (see next post). New members of the Club are added below the lowest ranked active member (see 11.)

2. You may play up to 2 games at once; one against a player above you on the ladder and one against a player below you in the ladder.

3. You may challenge anyone who is one, two, three, four or five spots above you on the ladder. Challenges are issued on this thread by tagging the person who is being challenged and myself (pickler_mz ). If you are challenged to a ladder game, and you are not already playing or being challenged by someone below you in the ladder, you must accept the challenge on this thread before the end of the 2nd day after the challenge (e.g. if you were challenged on a Monday, you have until end Wednesday to accept the invite.). Refusal to accept the challenge is treated as a loss.

4. If you know in advance that you are going to be unavailable for a time please let me know and I will place a note on the ladder

5. Ladder games are set up using chess.com. Once the challenge is accepted on this thread, the person making the challenge will send an invite to their opponent. The person making the challenge plays White and the person being challenged plays Black. The time limit is 1 day, which means minimum 1 move a day. However it is generally expected that games will be completed within a week.

6. Members need to post the results of their matches to this thread and tag myself (pickler_mz ). Live ladder updates will be processed in the order of thread post.

7. If the lower-ranked player wins, the lower-ranked player takes the higher-ranked player’s spot on the ladder, and the higher-ranked player moves down one spot.

8. If the higher-ranked player wins, there is no change in the players’ rankings.

9. If the game ends in a draw, the lower-ranked player takes the spot just below the higher-ranked player.

10. After a ladder game is played, at least one of the players must play a ladder game against someone else before they are allowed to play each other again.

11. Appeals: if you feel your opponent is being unnecessarily slow (e.g. only playing 1 move a day), cheating by using outside assistance, or you have any other claims or queries, let me know. I shall rule on all matters and my decision will be final.

12. Inactive members: players who have not played a game for four weeks or more will be deemed inactive and demoted below active players

13. Ladder will continue until 31 October 2020.

it's surprising how quickly one can rise up the ladder with a few wins. You can challenge and be challenged at the same time.

Should be ready to play.

You are already a member... you are sognesis aren't you? Sorry the randomiser put you so low on the list.

I know I have chess.com and Bigfooty user names mixed up - I will correct that when I update the ladder.
Oops I'm blind - thanks! No worries at all!

Challenge Filthy Sanchez 27 v 22

I've only just seen this thread.

Is the attachment with the ladder not working for anyone else? I'm just being told it the attachment can't be found.
