Which club's fans are the best at chess?

It's Season 3! After the Bulldogs won Season 1 and the Eagles Season 2, who will win this time? This will run throughout the AFL season.

Here's how it works
  • Every Round, there will be "chess AFL matches" just like the AFL
  • Each match comprises of fans facing off against each other in a chess match. The number of players per team depends on interest.
  • There is a Finals series just like the AFL season
I'm interested, but I don't know how much time I can commit

That's okay! All we're doing at this stage is expression of interest. No commitment at this stage. We will ultimately have captains of the chess AFL teams who will arrange teams. All we need is for you to respond to the thread and say you're interested. We anticipate your time commitment will be one 10 minute game every 2 weeks.

Great. I have more questions

Just ask! The aim is to allow chess fans to represent their favourite AFL team.

Sign up by saying you're interested below! We'll take your favourite AFL team from your profile.

RULES

1. Each league match is comprised of a minimum of 2 games between different players (minimum 10 minutes, random colour). Captains may agree for a match to comprise more than 2 games, although there is no obligation for a Captain to accept such an offer.

2. Any team who cannot play 2 players in a match will forfeit the second game, if it is found that they are the reason for the second game not being played.

3. The top 6 teams will make it to Finals. Tie breaks will be determined by 1) match result between two teams, 2) points difference, 3) points for, 4) coin toss.

4. In finals, matches are comprised of a minimum 4 games between 2 players (minimum 10 minutes: one white, one black).

5. I shall rule on all decisions and my decision will be final.

6. All-Star: Each Captain will choose to nominate 3 players in their respective league, giving each 3/2/1 votes respectively based on quality of play, fair play and posting in the thread.

Interested to help make up numbers.

If someone needs someone to blunder a queen earlier, I’m your guy.
