Hampstead Summer Festival Blitz, tomorrow 12 noon on Heath Street NW3

Dear Blitz Fans

As part of the Hampstead Summer Festival (www.hampsteadsummerfestival.com) we are going to have a blitz tournament tomorrow, open to all, from 12 noon to 2.30pm on Heath Street at the Chess Cafe (weather permitting, but it looks good). If you arrive late we'll fit you in with a half point bye.

We will be here on Heath Street Opposite Stage 2 if you look at the Festival map.  Arrive at Hampstead Underground Northern line turn right and fight your way up the hill.

I will have some sets, boards and some clocks but bring a digital clock if you want to use it.

Format: Swiss (not a knockout), six rounds, entry fee minimum donation to the Festival of £5, 1st Prize £25.00, five minutes per player double round (you play white and black). NOT RATED - just for fun

You can stay and play casual games all day, and there are two giant chess sets to play with as well, courtesy of Chess and Bridge and UCS Junior School!

If you want to enter just email me / message me on Facebook /  and bring the correct change.  Have fun!

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.
