Sections for Teams of Experts, Novices, and Between!
Four to six players band together as a team, and compete in divisions of 4 – 7 teams in one of six ratings sections. One round is played per week, for six weeks, from Tuesday to the following Tuesday. Before each round, each captain decides which four players will play that week against players from the opposing team.
Paired players use a message board ("Game Forum") to discuss the day and time to play their game. The game is played with a time control of 45 minutes + 45 second increments, rated, with assigned colors. After the round, the team with the most wins (Game Points) wins the round, and earns a Match Point. After six rounds of regulation play, the team with the most Match Points in each division advances to the playoffs (1-3 more rounds) to determine the sectional champions. Champions earn two-month membership extensions donated by ICC, and runner-ups earn one-month. To join, follow the steps in: Quick Guide.
