    The Bracket (Mar. 19 - Mar 29)
    - This is a 16 player single-elimination bracket, randomly seeded.
    - The format will be 3+0 Blitz, Best of 1 Game (Bo1). You can practice on lichess.org.
    - Prize: I will buy the bracket winner a 3 month prize from the . If they do not want the prize, they may gift it to anyone. Disclaimer: The bracket winner must play the Challenger Match (win or lose) in order to claim their prize.



    The Challenger Match (Mar. 30)
    The winner of the bracket earns the right to face me in a 3+0 Blitz, Bo3 match on my birthday.​

    As I take chess extremely seriously, I'm opening sign-ups very early so that you may practice. Let me know if you want to sign-up and feel free to tag people that are good at chess.

    I'll get in on this. Used to play more when I was younger but haven't played in a while now so I'll probably be a bit rusty.

    that boy got so upset when i beat him at chess, pestered me for months to play with him, i agreed to one game, then proceeded to win.
    was rather jarring if i may be permitted to say so

    i gotta say....i was never more annoyed than when you beat me at chess after pretending to not be good

    thats like those kids that pretend they haven't been studying for exams and then do better than everyone.

    why do people pretend to not be good? shouldn't be allowed. i would have played better if i hadn't underestimated my opponent.

    i'll beat you one day....:boredbear

    thats exactly the point
    we don't wanna play you at 100%
    hell i go as far as pretending i'm a complete noob, letting my opponent teach me the basic and all
    if i lose he can't celebrate because i'm a noob
    and if i win? he probably won't get a chance to play me again unfortunately
    because? because i didn't like the game thats what i say
    haha

    been doing this and avoiding playing noobs (duh) since i was 6
    everyone thinks i'm the best
    and my win record agrees

    I would appreciate that. If we don’t get enough sign ups by the start date, I will make the bracket smaller and begin it with the people on the list, assuming we have an even number of players at the time.

    Decided I’m still going with 16 players (for hype) instead of cutting down. Dates will be changed and pushed back as a result.

    Once we fill, you will be PM’d a couple days before the tournament starts.
