We are running a 9 round FIDE rated blitz on Sunday 8th July at the Customs House starting 12:30pm
Time control: All moves in 5 minutes plus 2 second increment.
The prize fund will depend on entry but will be at least £250. We plan on prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd plus 3 ratings prizes, a junior (U18) prize and a senior (65+) prize.
Entry fee is £5 payable on the day but we would appreciate entries in advance in order to help us with the organization and to guarantee your place. Entries are limited to 70 players.
Enter via email to Blitz@southshieldschessclub.co.uk giving name, FIDE ID (if you have one and know it). If you don’t have a FIDE ID we need your date of birth to register you with FIDE.
Breaking News! ECF membership not required
We originally said in entry forms that ECF Bronze membership was required, based on advice from the ECF. They have since got in touch to tell us this was a mistake, since the ECF do not grade blitz.
