Jersey Blitz Chess Championships 2013


As if we didn't have enough chess going on this week, we (overworked organiser Tito Kahn and I) have decided to hold this competition on Saturday 9th March, keeping my fingers crossed that all the games in the festival finish in good time, and that players eat their evening meal a tempo.

The tournament will be FIDE rated, five minutes per game, run on the swiss system and we hope to squeeze in 10 rounds before 10pm.  There is a token entry fee of a pound for entrants in the festival, and a fiver for guests, with a first prize of £50.00, and a second prize of £25.00.

It is always touch move, and completed illegal moves lose - if claimed!

Here is a list of FIDE registered tournaments in England. There will be a separate entry for each section of each event (e.g. Golders Green Rapidplay = 4 sections, 4 registrations). If you see any of mine missing, do let me know! 

Scroll down to the bottom to access the archive of events. 

Only games where at least one of the players has a published standard FIDE rating will be rated, and included in the rating calculations of the unrated player. Where both players are rated, the game will affect both players and will be included in the calculations for both players.
