Chess in Malta

Right now I am lucky enough to be in Sliema, Malta, at the Imperial Hotel where the first XYChess is taking place. I'm the arbiter, and my co-organiser Clarence Psaila is a tour de force in Maltese chess - he not only put this FIDE rated event together, but is also taking part - and was the first to finish today! 

There are four groups of ten players, the top event being an IM norm tournament. Clarence also organises the local league - which is also FIDE rated - and competes in tournaments in the UK and Europe. If you want to follow the results you can look at Chess Results

I'm sure this will be the first of many successful events.

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.
