How Tournaments Work:
Players are divided into groups of 4
1 winner will qualify for next round
Depending on how many players this will be a couple or rounds or more
Games are played with a 3 Day time limit, max live games will be 3
This allows a casual and none demanding play style which you can take at your own pace.
Feel free to chat and network as you play. The app itself allows you to block anyone that you might find annoying if disrespectful (in victory!)
Media Chess Club is a none for profit networking event played through the online Chess App/Website Chess.com
All levels are welcome. At the moment we are only taking entries from professionals in the media industry for current tournaments. The goal is to provide a fun event that gets more like minded people into Chess and creates a fun event for networking.
Why play Chess?
Chess is quite like a brain tonic which enhances concentration, patience, and perseverance, as well as develops creativity, intuition, memory, and most importantly, the ability to process and extract information from a set of general principles, learning to make tough decisions and solving problems flexibly.
I am currently looking for sponsors for upcoming tournaments. This is a small amount circa £300 which will go directly to the winners. In return the sponsor will get full branding on here, my lovely shiny new website where applicants can register interest and coverage on all social media posts relating to the tournament, it's progress and winners. This site will also feature updates and screen shots of live tournaments and announcements.
Eventually the goal is for this to be an in person event or pub gathering where people can unwind after work with a pint or coffee and play a few games or quick tournaments.
