    1. The reason you did not get an email is because I cannot see that you registered for the event. I registered on the website and did not register for the actual event. Did you follow all the steps in the brochure?

      1. Hi Sipho – please be advised that you did not follow the instructions to register for this event which were clearly communicated in the brochure and above – there were multiple steps to register. You only completed step one and created a profile on SA Chess Hub. You failed to register for the actual tournament and thus did not receive the links. You cannot leave it to the last day and expect to play. I am sorry for you but please follow all the steps for the next round.

    1. You have registered for the event and now need to join the lichess team as soon as possible. I cannot find your lichess username on the website. Please confirm what your lichess name is.
