960 Crown Stars tourneys

Once you reach XP level 30, you ought to start seeing in 'all' tournaments, 960 Crown Stars tourneys.

What's impressive about those is that if lots of members enter, new ones will keep popping up (else, I think the site will spit one out three times an hour). For 750 cubits entry fee, you have a shot at winning 5, 3 or 1 crowns (sometimes there's a tie so sharing will happen). And really, it's a pretty good deal if you're a good and fast 960 (Fischer Chess) player, as you have only 4 or 5 competitors in the event (beat 2 or 3 and you're "in the money", with ties, you might get a crown or two even if you're almost dead last). I mean, what else can you do with cubits, other than win crowns to gift VIP to others or buy it for yourself?

Having trouble accumulating cubits? Since the March 6th changeover I've about doubled my cubits balance from under 25,000 cubits to over 50,000 cubits. There's all sorts of ways I could have 'spent' my cubits down to about zero by now by choosing the 'wrong' price and seek ads for games here. Here's the basis of my method: https://www.chesscube.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=5068

Anyway, I kinda like 960 Crown Star tourneys (when the competition's weak enough, I don't like to just give my cubits away). Here's one I finished a few minutes ago:

btw, I placed 'second' (and so, won 3 crowns at this event). Won 3 games, lost 1, and got another one as a 'bye' since my opponent was absent (so, 4 out of a possible 5 points).

Re: 960 Crown Stars tourneys

Sorry, site glitch started when the site recovered from about four hours downtime yesterday and prevents the interactive game displays from showing in the previous post -- I've reported the new bug via Feedback in game mode, so am hopeful this feature will be restored at some point.

Meanwhile for those of you who are VIP (and can readily look up others' player histories and games), I encourage you to review the players histories and replay the games on site, especially those of the first place winner in this event.

Well, you do like 1/0 chess. And your regular rating's close to 3,000. Suggestion (since 960 Crown Stars 3/0 games are serious business, with a 750 tourney entry fee and really stiff competition).

a) play 960 2/0 as wagered rated games (if you're apt to lose, choose 15 cubit games and think of it as a learning experience, else pick much weaker players and 200 cubit games so you earn while you learn)

b) when you're ready to dip your toe in the water for 960 tourneys, start with the 1/0 sit & go version: "960 Lightning", only 100 cubits to enter (relies more on speed then really knowing 960). Gain some confidence with those, and when you're ready, give the 960 Crown Star tourneys a try from time to time (especially, when the entrants are not especially strong looking, rating-wise).
