Re: Commonwealth Chess Championship - 2011 Online Qualifier

in this thread it says you have to play in the section that corresponds to your real world rating, but what if my real world rating is U2200 and my chesscube rating is higher? it doesn't let me enter the U2200 tournaments on chesscube.

Whats the purpose of such system , just dont tell me "anyone can win". and by the way I got one more question there is no limit for B section how low rated player can be in order to join, for example 1200 could easilly win b section but can have trouble in c section that isnt sane mind logic.
I suggest 1900 to be lower limit.


If I'm correct, the unfair handicap system you may be referring to is the Points handicap system. This is only effective in the C-Section (max 1800), where it levels the playing field for all entrants in this section, by awarding lower rated players with more points for beating a higher rated player, and vice versa. Section-A and Section-B do not have the points handicap enabled. The reason there is no minimum ratings in all sections is because anyone is open to play in them, and moreover, we have requested that users join the section which corresponds to their real world rating. You might find a ChessCube user with a 1900 rating, where their real world rating is 1100.

I have been playing many hendicep tournaments here, and I never seen strong player winning hendicep system tournament or being even close, you say purpose of hendicep is to give chance everybody to win, well this is game of chess, in which should not be lottery involved. But I stress out maybe hendicep would be ok if it was not abused so often, I met so many lower rated players then me in WR hendicep, I am 1850 CC, and they were playing on very high level and plus points hendicep system worked for them beautifully. Never the less this is great event and initiative from CC, but as I said I am bit concerned about hendicep system, it is simply not fair and it is being abused in large scale.

ChessCube will be monitoring the games played by tournament entrants, and will immediately disqualify and ban the account once cheating is detected. Additionally, ALL winners will have their games verified for all cheat types (engine use, sandbagging etc), and should a user be found guilty of cheating, they will forfeit their prize, which will be moved to the next user in the standings (provided that user has not cheated in any way or form too). Finally, all winners are required to provide ChessCube with proof of their identity for verification purposes.

You're able to play in the A-section (Open). If you find yourself playing a higher rated opponent, you will be given a time advantage in the game.

Thanks for your comments and questions thus far.

It's not a tournament that will affect your real world rating, its a qualifier event on ChessCube, where the winners of each section will win the prizes sponsored by ChessCube.
