Team Louisiana Vs Nashville Chess Center and Memphis Chess Center - This Thursday - on lichess!

posted Mar 24, 2020, 10:52 AM by Louisiana Chess
Team Louisiana will take on the Nashville Chess Center and the Memphis Chess Center this Thursday on lichess! The scores of the ten highest-finishing players on each team will be added to determine the team score. We may have up to 15 players in each round. If more than 15 register to play for Team Louisiana , I’ll be asking sime players to pause in certain rounds so that everyone gets a chance to be paired and play.

To sign up, first create a lichess account if you don’t already have one. Next, join Team Louisiana by clicking through to request to join the team and sending an email to saying what your screen name & real name are, your US Chess id, and your rating. Once you’re accepted on Team Louisiana, you’ll be able to join the tournament. Search for ”Stay Home and Play Chess” and click “join”.

Then login to lichess Thursday evening at 6:45 to join some pre-match chatter and wait for your first pairing. If you haven’t played on lichess before, you may want to play a few games in the next 3 days to familiarize yourself with the platform.

Your move!
