Re: Commonwealth Chess Championship - 2011 Online Qualifier

There is some confusion, am i right in thinking if you win a level 3 event you get a ticket for the final and do not have to pay 200 crowns? Or even with a ticket do we still have to pay? X0(

thanks

Re: Commonwealth Chess Championship - 2011 Online Qualifier

I have fide rating of 2353.I played first 2 levels in group A and got 3rd level ticket.But the Group A 3rd level tournament cancelled becausoe of lack of players so i played in level 3 of group B and i got 6th place and a blank ticket
Now Do I need to play all level's of group A again or I will get the direct entry to the finals in open section with blank ticket.(Please note: I want to play in Finals of GROUP A)

Re: Commonwealth Chess Championship - 2011 Online Qualifier

I ve just won a ticket in Commonwealth B Day 1. Does this mean that that I will be able to play in the finals on April 3? Actually I ve won two tickets yesterday as well but I ve used them to play again. I am sorry but I don't really get how this works, please explain if possible. Thanks

Re: Commonwealth Chess Championship - 2011 Online Qualifier

Ok I just discovered that my ticket says on it: Commonwealth finals Level 1. So what does that mean exactly? Is it refering to April 3 or some other sort of finals before that. Sorry but I am really confused.

Having a ticket from level 3, exempts you from paying the entry fee for the final round. Each section has its unique tickets.
I sometimes drift over this way,, but not very often

It means you have a ticket for the finals which is on April 3. Depending on which section you got the ticket for, either A, B, or C.

Hi,

Section A tickets differ from Section B tickets, you cannot use a ticket won in Section A and use it in section B. Everyday has its own events, meaning you cannot use a ticket won in day 1 in day 2. You will however need to play all levels again to acquire these tickets.

Having won a ticket in level 3 of Section B, makes you eligible to use that ticket for the finals of Section B and not Section A.

Re: Commonwealth Chess Championship - 2011 Online Qualifier

Good evening. Today I won Commonwealth Finals ticket. Does this mean that i don't need to play in tomorrow tourney?
Will anything change if i would have a lot of tickets to final.

How many final tourney will it be? In case of one, can someone announce exact date?

Thanks for your reply.But just think is it my mistake that the level 3 of group A tournament canceled?
I mean What if same thing happens today? You should seriously think about that.

Re: Commonwealth Chess Championship - 2011 Online Qualifier

Hi Everyone..

Just to clear up some confusion:

This is the Tournament structure per section:

Daily Tournament Level 1 -> Daily Tournament Level 2 -> Daily Tournament Level 3 -> Final.
If you have won a ticket in a Level 1 event, you may enter Level 2 at no charge.
If you have won a ticket in a Level 2 event, you may enter the 6PM GMT/UTC Level 3 event at no charge.
If you win a ticket in the Daily Level 3 event, you may enter the FINAL at no charge.

Notes:
* Level 3 (the daily tournament for all sections at 6PM GMT/UTC) is not the Final.
* Each ticket to the next level is available for that day only. You cannot, for example, use a ticket you've won in a level 2 event to enter level 3 the next day. If you were not able to play in the Level 3 daily event or you did not win a ticket, you would either need to purchase your entry into a level of your choice, or start from Level 1 again.

Hope this helps..

Thanks,
Sean
