This is the way it is going to work. The teams will be split into two (equal) sides of 4 on 4. The two teams will then separate into different chat rooms. The rooms I am thinking would work best are the ChessNetwork cafe and Piewalker cafe. This is just for fun and will not be rated. There is to be no chat between the teams inside of the game. Only spectator comments. Neither team may enter the others cafe while the game is in progress.
AndrewGMeyer (2300) - White Team
Sansen (2200) - Black Team
White Team (Piewalker Cafe):
IM_MarcArnold (2700) (first half of game only)
Black Team (ChessNetwork Cafe):
The teams will separate into their different chat rooms and will be allowed 5 minutes to come up with an opening strategy. Team white will ask for the "ready to go" from black. Once both teams are ready the game may commence. The time control will be 30 minutes. Teams will need to come to an agreement about the best move fast so they don't get flagged. The team captains will be the ones hosting the game. The team captains have the ability to veto a move that the team suggested. This means that when it comes to time pressure the team captain may take over without feedback from the team.
Sansen will determine the prizes to the winning team.
TOURNAMENT STARTS AT 8pm Central United States
