    Championship


    RULES:

    1. All forum rules apply to this tournament
    2. All matches must obey the Laws of Chess
    3. Matches can be completed on any platform that both players agree to. The default platform is lichess.
    4. Use of clocks are optional, but encouraged (30 minutes per player is a good default time control)
    5. Deadlines will be set for matches to be completed. ENZ0 and I will grant wins / losses / draws based on activity if needed.
    6. ENZ0 and I will settle disputes on a case-by-case basis. PM us or contact us on IRC if needed.
    7. Use of chess-playing computers and anything of the sort is strictly prohibited. Use of opening books, endgame tables, etc. during the match is also strictly prohibited. Use nothing that you couldn't use in a face-to-face tournament.
    8. The tournament is swiss-style. 1 point for a win, .5 points for a draw, 0 points for a loss. There will be 6 rounds, and if there is no clear winner, there will be a playoff.

    [4.5]WHITE: UMBREON DAN

    vs

    [5]BLACK: GINGANINJA

    Winner takes all! If there's a draw, Ginganinja wins the tournament. The rest of the matches don't effect the outcome, so if you feel cheated / want to play more chess come on #smogonchess and challenge someone.
