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).
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.
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.
