As October comes to an end, it's time for another recap of what's new on the site this month. You'll find a heavy emphasis on explaining aspects of tournament play this month, along with a smattering of other articles. Links to all the new articles this month an be found below!
Tournament Articles: As I said, this was a big point of emphasis this month. New articles include a guide to playing in your first tournament, a look at the Swiss system, an explanation of what a tournament director does, and a list of five things you don't want to do at a tournament.
You'll also find new articles on cheating in chess, as well as a profile of Russian grandmaster Dmitry Andreikin, who was easily the top-ranked player who didn't already have a profile on the site. As always, let me know if you have anything you'd like to see in November!
