Forthcoming online Tournaments
There are two online tournaments coming up. Firstly the regular Tuesday evening Arena (ten minutes per player per game in a one-hour tournament) on 1st September 2020.
Then on Thursday 3rd September, the Southampton v Portsmouth match that Graham Stuart has set up on lichess.org, and is a ‘Team Battle’ event between the Southampton Chess League (SCL) and Portsmouth & District Chess League (PDCL). The tournament’s time control, at 7 minutes initially then 3 seconds a move increment roughly equating to ten minutes per player per game, is the same as we’ve recently used in our 5-round swiss tournaments. Please note though the slightly earlier time for this event, 7:30pm, and that it lasts for 1 hour 30 minutes.
