Pools feature added
The biggest update for months, ScorchChess officially now has support for pairing pools! That means you can assign players to a 'Pool 1' and a 'Pool 2' and have them only play players in that pool. It's a nice way to divide up your large tournaments into something with fewer rounds! We plan to expand this feature in the future, adding pools into knockout, or pools into swiss. In the mean time you can check this out in action in [James Connors’ UK University Chess League]( live now on ScorchChess!
