One Graded Game


We often have a lot of half point byes on Saturday evening, and if you can't make the whole weekend we wondered whether you might be interested in playing one English Chess Federation graded game? (not FIDE rated).  Then register online using the normal form and I'll pair you up with someone! Choose SECTION = One Graded Game from the options.

The time control and playing conditions are the same for all games, 60 minutes each plus 30 seconds a move throughout, and the game starts at 5.30pm on Saturday and games could go on to 8.30pm.  Mobile phones must be kept switched off during play. You will be paired against someone roughly your own strength and play alongside the other players in the congress.  

It will cost you £8.00, or £14.00 for players who are not already ECF Silver members or above (we will upgrade you to Silver if you are already Bronze).  You have to be Gold or Platinum to play in the FIDE sections of the congress, or optionally Silver if you want to play in the Under 135 section.
