T87 - Round 3
Round 3 is underway.
A would-be entrant asked if USCF ratings could be counted toward the fixed rating. The answer is NO. To be eligible, a player must have played at least 20 rated standard games on ICC to qualify; because players have to be out of "provisional" (fewer than 20 games) status to fit our match game requirements.
Should a player ask ICC to re-establish his satandard rating by voiding his previous rating, he must again play 20 standard games to qualify to play league games. Such a change does not affect his previously established league rating, if any, which is based solely on his league games..
T87 - Games Of The Week
Megasus continues as our GOTW guru. If only one or no nominations in a round, guru will also choose a game from all the games he looked at from all sections, titled Guru's Pick
R1 laurenpar v fileman A wide-open game, where W uses Kside pressure to create a hole in Black's middle defense, but has to hold on as his own defense is shredded and his K has to move out. W's N is more effective at the end than Black's B, and W's Rs dominate long enough to advance one of W's linked pawns within a move of Q-ing.

What we are about
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 four 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 (1-4 more rounds) to determine the Section champions. Division and Section champion teams each earn one-month account extensions donated by ICC. To join, follow the steps in: Quick Guide.
Play fair and Play nice!
To ensure a friendly and safe environment for members to enjoy our team competition, Team 45 45 League issues sanctions of varying severity for behavior that "disrupts the peaceful enjoyment of the league by its participants." All league games are reviewed for possible assistance. Anyone who receives a red card for suspected cheating is reported to speedtrap. League sanctions are summarized in The Docket.
