Frequently Asked Questions

Maybe you can find your answer here.

Can we have a different time control?

We will have polls on this website regarding time controls and different chess websites. Sending a message also helps us know that people want a change.

Why do i get the same pairings on lichess.org?

It probably happened to many of us where you get paired a couple times in a row with the same player. This is out of our control it is how the pairing system works on lichess.org. This happens sometimes because you two are the only pair not playing. If you want to avoid that scenario you can try pressing the pause button untill your recent opponent gets paired up again.

How long is the tournament?

The tournament span is about 3 hours. We chose the time span as if a long club game was being played out. You can leave at anytime and join at anytime.

Can you send me direct emails for upcoming tournament links?

Absolutely, it will be easier for you and us. Contact us below, send us your name and email at cuvochess@gmail.com

What time does the tournament start?

The tournaments will start at 7:30 to 10:30 pm. In the event that we have a poll and the majority would like to change the time of the tournament, we will change it.

What other platforms other than the website are there?

We have a facebook, lichess.org, and chess.com accounts you can sign up with. 

For contact though we prefer email. cuvochess@gmail.com
