  3. AWC 2017 Bracket & Round 1

The entry has closed and we have 44 players. That's an increase on last year, so thanks to all participants! The tournament bracket is here: http://challonge.com/atomicwc2017

The first round matches must be played by Sunday 5th November. Players should offer 3 possible times to their opponent by Wednesday 1st November at the latest. Once a time is agreed please let me know so I don't have to chase up :) For more details about arranging a time see the 'match negotiation' section of the rules: https://sites.google.com/site/atomicchesswc/2017-awc/rules

Round 1 Matches:
Kristal vs FischyVishy
venuslippe vs MINISTEROFMAGIC
strategoo vs Legambit
contagio vs azuaga
eagle_eye_ru vs apostador
ijnelson137 vs LeopardCheetah
ChessWhiz vs Teentra
Duubik vs Chijss
DanDan2016 vs AtomSchachMeister
ltdonutdagger vs iiro97

misternav vs TheM492017

Some round 2 matches are already known. Please feel free to arrange those this week if you'd like, but they don't have to be completed until Sunday 12th November.

Good luck everyone!

I'm posting the times of the matches here: https://sites.google.com/site/atomicchesswc/2017-awc/matches/1-round-1

I'll do this for each round, in case anyone wants to follow them :)

I have already messaged leopard cheetah about our game but have not heard back, though I only wrote to the user earlier today. If they don't respond by the deadline are they out?

@ijnelson137 the usual process will be if an opponent hasn't replied by the end of Wednesday, then you can choose a time without their agreement. Then if they don't show up you win by default.

For individual cases it's best to communicate via pm. I'm not too concerned if people haven't responded yet. The tournament doesn't officially start until tomorrow anyway.

Yeah I know, just wanted to ask some dumb questions XD. After I wrote it I felt a little silly. Thank you though.

No worries, maybe the explanation will help other people wondering about the same thing.
