A while ago several of us expressed interest in signing up and playing on chess.com. I don’t know how many of you actually followed through on it, but if you have I’d like to get some organized participation going.

We should develop a ToO Chess club where we play online against each other frequently. We can have our own tournaments and things like that. I think it would be fun. Anyone interested? You don’t have to be good at chess, you just have to like to play.

ToOers on chess.com:
AIOluver - AIOluver
American Eagle - FromAE
Astronomer - Astronomerthewrite
bookworm - too_bookworm
~JCGJ~ - JCGJ121
Jehoshaphat - Cooldude333
Jesus' Princess - countrygirl96
Joy - gjoy01
Lee - iluvsns
Monty - MontyWhittaker
ric - ricster3569
snubs - Wilyn
Stop Wooton' Around - AioPaul
Whitty Whit - KillerSpaz
Woody - ToyStoryWoody

I’ll put a reference list of ToOers and their chess.com usernames in the first post. Next time you log in everyone should add everyone else as friends so we can easily find each other for matches.

Obviously since my name was on the list I'm interested. I have a feeling this topic is not going to get as many views as other topics therefore the club will not reach its full potential. Somehow it needs to be publicized.

We don’t need a huge number of members, but I’d like at least 8 before we have our first tournament.

Shouldn't this be in the "Steps?"

Not necessarily. As previously mentioned in the past, the Steps is the place for topics concerning the board. While this involves a club on the ToO, this is also a place of discussion not about the ToO. Theoretically, it could go in the Steps, but since it's here... ;)

Depends on how fast you are. They’re played in real time.

We can have our first tournament soon to kick things off. Until then we should play some games against each other, or anyone else, to brush up on our skills.

We can create a group for Tooers only if we want to. The only problem is you need a premium membership. Also you need a premium membership for things like creating tournaments and I bunch of other stuff so someone might have to get it if we want to do it. A gold is $5 a month or $29 a year, Platinum is $7 a month or $49 a year, or a Diamond is $14 a month $99 a year. To create a a tournaments and groups and get a lot more features Platinum would be the best.

We can just do a makeshift tournament. I’ll make a bracket and we’ll do the rounds individually.

I would join. But I really don't want to play any online. I don't concentrate as well. And I focus on blitz chess. (5 Minute under 18 regional champ) Otherwise I'd be all in.

Well, Knight Fisher that's the only way to do it and besides you played quite well against me.

So if I see that some of you are online I might ask if you could play.

For now I think the tourney should be 10 minutes so since we have eight people, Bookworm you could make that bracket.

I already have the bracket ready, if no one else joins. We can start in a week or so.
I don’t anticipate the whole thing being done simultaneously, it will most likely span several days, so the time limit can be up to each player.

Wow, you really should meet my brother. He's a chess nut (not saying that you are or anything) and he's also the blitz champ for our area, actually our state I think. :yes:
