This coming Monday, February 3, the Arcadia Chess Club will sponsor a new, USCF quick-rated tournament which will start at 7:15 PM.
If you would like to play in this one-night extravaganza, please arrive in the Skittles Room by 7:00 PM so that there will be time to organize the event and make the pairings. If you plan to play but cannot make it by 7, please leave a note on the Arcadia Chess Club website. The entry fee is $5 per person.
Tentatively, the tournament will consist of three rounds of 25 min + 5 sec delay per game. However, it is also possible, at the players’ discretion, that the format will instead consist of three rounds of double 12 minute + 5 sec delay games (one white and one black versus each opponent).
First prize will be 75% of the entry fees, and second prize will be the choice of one item from a large box of approximately 75 new and used chess books and chess dvds.
This tournament will be organized by Mike Carlson and will be experimental. If successful, regular quick-rated (25 min per game or 12 minutes per game) or slow-rated (75 minutes per game with 10 sec increment – including the possibility of rated matches) events will be offered at 7:15 PM on a frequent basis. The idea is to benefit the players by providing for new chess playing options.
