Spring Grand Prix in Gorey Chess Club 2018
 
Here’s the basic plan (some details left out):
 
Deadline to enter each Rapid is 7.50pm on Monday night.
Entrants divided into groups of 4 similar-strength players and play a mini all-play-all tournament,
15 minutes a side.
Thus guaranteed 3 tough games against different opponents and should be finished by 9.30 pm or so. Sounds good?
 
If there’s interest, we’ll run one tomorrow night 19 Feb. 2018. Let me know if you want to enter.
 
Other details: One rapid event per month for 4 months. Feb to May.
€1 entry on the night, to be returned in prizes at the end.
Final places decided on max points: 4 for winning a rapid, 1 for coming last, so max. achievable points 16.
If odd number of players on the night a group may need to have a bye so finishing time may be delayed a bit.
 
No problem if you miss a Rapid, just you won’t get any points.
 
This is just a fun event.
Goal is to make it easier to play games against different people of similar strength,
practice playing with clock more and get a bit of a competitive edge going in the club!
 
Cheers
