    ENZ0 and I would like to welcome you to another edition of Smogon's Chess Tournament! Depending on the level of activity, the tournament will either be Swiss-style or a combination of round-robin and single elimination. Swiss pairings are awesome and will be used if we get enough people, so join! If you are willing to sign up, please be aware that a high level of activity is expected from everyone. It will be interesting to see who emerges victorious in this pure skill game *looks at pokemon and sighs*.

    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.

    All tournament participants are encouraged to join #smogonchess on synirc! Congregating in one area will make it easy for you to contact your opponent and for ENZ0 and I to contact you.

    Lichess is a free website that anyone with an internet connection can play on. There are many similar websites, and playing by PMing each other moves would even be an acceptable way to play if your opponent agrees to it.
