New players to the Tornelo platform will have to sign up at Tornelo – Tornelo requires the use of real names – which is part of their Fair Play philosophy. You will receive a confirmation email from Tornelo that you will have to respond to. (Please check your spam folder in case it ended up there).
After you have signed up with an ‘account’, you should be able to see a ‘join as a player’ button in the Lobby at the following link:
So, that is like pre-registering for a tournament. On the night of the tournament, you have to check-in. Then the arbiter can make pairings being assured that everyone is there and/or give byes as needed. So it is no problem to register for the tournament and not show up (but as a courtesy please advise to firstname.lastname@example.org). You will only be paired if you are checked-in on Tuesday night by 9:30 p.m.
Please register for the first round any time (any day) prior to 9:30 p.m. on **Thursday December 8 ** (the earlier the better). This will allow time for the arbiter to ensure that all players are current CFC members and to use the appropriate CFC rating for pairings.
Let me know if you have any problems signing up/in.
Thanks, Tony Boron
