Murra Family Team Tournament

Murra Family Team Tournament  Rd 1 of 6    7 PM   10/05/11

This event will consist of normal rated games like we always play, the difference will be that the prizes will be based on the performance of the team. Each team will consist of 4 players. The top rated player on the team is board 1, the next bd 2, etc. When Team A plays Team B, then the top boards will play each other, Bd 2 will play Bd 2, etc. We normally have about 70 players in our events so I expect to have about 14 teams. We will decide who are on the teams at 7 PM before the first round. Don't be late! The top rated players will be the team Captains. Then we will have a "draft" where the team captains will select players from the available pool of players. Team 14 will pick first... We will add teams for round 2 when possible...

The time control will be G/120 with 10 second delay. This is a compromise between the G/90 players and those who like longer controls.

The draft took a little time, but was worth it in my book to get reasonably equal teams. We did end up with 14 teams as predicted (except we went with 4 player teams instead of 5), but we will be expanding to at least 16 teams for round 2. If you plan to join us, please email Chuck at as soon as possible, so I can put you on a proper team. Here were the individual results from last night, and then I will list the team results...
