Round 2 of the MonkeyClub 45 45 Tournament Started!

Hi guys, the second round of our tournament just started a few hours ago. We already have three games played so far and three players are currently leading the pack with two points.

I have also changed the calculation method a tiny little bit as now it does neglect the score of your worst scoring opponent before adding the total sum of all of your opponents points. That way, players who had opponents that discontinued playing in the tournament and/or late joined the tournament will not be at an disadvantage as they would probably have around 3 to 5 points less buchholz points than the rest of the players.

Ladder Tournament Postponed

Hello all, the MonkeyClub ladder tournament will be postponed in favour of a new Monkey Club European Soccer Championship tournament - a quick tournament to emulate the current soccer championship at the chess board. If you are interested in participating in this tournament then hurry to the tournament site and sign up for this event as we need 16 players to get the tournament started.

The ladder tournament itself will start in the beginning of July after our little championship has ended.
