Hey Everyone, I had to go to another neighborhood. My internet is down and unlikely to be back up for another few hours. I am sorry that the broadcast isn’t going to happen. But the tournament will.
Thank you for joining us today. Please remember to click on both the links for “JOIN TOURNAMENT” in your group assignments every day to join the tournaments. If you do not join them in advance then you cannot play. Be sure to pay attention after you finish your first game because the next round begins right after everyone has completed the first round.
If you missed the round or had any other issues I am running another tournament. It will begin @ 3:30 Pacific Time
All the chess problems listed are extra. You do not have to do all the problems in one day, or even do them at all. They are meant to fill in time if you happen to finish an assignment and are waiting for the next event to begin.

To play versus the computer on Chess.com just click the link and select your opponent. You can scroll to see other opponents other than Jimmy. I suggest starting with Martin(250). Once you have beaten him at least 5 times then you can move onto another opponent.
