Paso Robles Chess Ladder
Ladder is not current. To see current ladder you must visit the club!

Ladder Rules
1. You may only challenge players two spaces above you. (i.e. the player in slot 8 may challenge either player in 7 or slot 6)

2. All challenges must be accepted. Exception: If you have already played a ladder game that night you can opt out of the challenge. A member may play as many ladder games as they can fit into one night.

3. Challenger plays white.

4. If challenger wins he/she takes the losers spot and all players shift down (i.e. if player 8 beats player 6, player 8 moves up to spot 6, player 6 moves down to spot 7 and player 7 moves down to spot 8).

5. All matches are to be played with a clock. All matches are to be G/29. Keep in mind that all ladder games must end by 8:50pm.

6. If you are absent from the chess club your name is placed on inactive status. When you return to the club you will become active. However, you will have to work your way back up the ladder.
