Hendon Chess Club 4-Round Swiss Thursday 25 July

Designed to give club members a bit of pre-season practice, this 4-round swiss is graded by the ECF for the Rapidplay list, and is also open to visitors for a fiver.  15 minutes each for the game.

Golders Green Rapidplay Saturday 3rd August

If you are not playing in the British OR you are playing in week 2 and need a warm up, come along!  August is usually our busiest month, so enter early (and enter often).
Thanks to local Italian restaurant Charlie's (right across the road from the playing venue) we have four £25.00 meal vouchers to award in addition to our usual prizes.

Results of the event on 13 July are now published in full on our website.

Hampstead Congress Bank Holiday Weekend 24-26 August

August's event is unusual for us; SIX rounds over THREE days including the Bank Holiday Monday, and a longer time control - all in 90 minutes each plus 30 seconds a move. Same entry fees.

THERE ARE TWO SECTIONS: OPEN TO ALL and UNDER 1900 (160 if you have no standard FIDE rating) with entries coming in for both sections fast!

PRIZES: £200 1st prize, £100 2nd prize in each section, plus a rating prize of £80 in each section!

Results of the event on 20-21 July are now available in full on our website. Congrats to Pawel Madynski and Conrad Allison 4.5/5 who won £150 each in a field of 64 players.  You can check out the games from previous events, and look at all the crosstables to see what kind of opposition you might face if you play next month!

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.
