The Book Prize Tournament 2021 is one of four Chandler’s Ford Chess Club tournaments. This year’s Book Prize Tournament started at the beginning of October 2021. It is organised by Peter Przybycin.
Rate of play – 90 minutes each for the whole game.
The first named player has the white pieces.
Games will (preferably) be played over-the-board at chess club, or at the home of the player with the white pieces. Score sheets and clocks should be used.
Games may alternatively be played online, using Lichess, by mutual consent. Score sheets are not needed for online games.
Online games will not be sent for grading.
In the event of a tie for first place, the book prize will be awarded to whoever wins their individual game. If this is a draw, a tie break game will be necessary, colours reversed. If there is still a tie, then the player with the lower most recent grade will take the prize.
In the unlikely event of me winning the Major section, the book will go to the runner-up.
