The event format is expected to be a 5-round Swiss rapidplay (20 minutes allowed to each player to make all his or her moves) with rounds starting at 6.45, 7.30, 8.15, 9.0 and 9.45


This event will be restricted to members, both adults and juniors, of Watford Chess Club who are members of the English Chess Federation (ECF) at 'bronze' level or higher.    Results will be submitted to the ECF to count for grading in the rapidplay category.


To accommodate members with differing needs -


1) A half-point bye will be available to those who cannot arrive in time for round 1


2) Half-point byes will be available in rounds 4 and 5 to those juniors for whom this would otherwise be an uncomfortably late night


No entry fee, no prizes, club members only.      To enter, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..     Please signify in which rounds, if any, you wish to take a bye.
