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 two not playing. If you want to avoid that scenario you can try pressing the pause button until 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.
