I’ve had a few requests to try out some organised Rapid play in the club. Seems like a good idea to me – opportunity to play Over-The-Board games without the time commitment necessitated by standard time controls. Also, being closer to the ‘real thing’ it’s reputed to be far better for your chess than blitz.
Thursday next (Feb 19th) is free of league matches so we can make a start and continue from there is there’s sufficient interest.
– all moves in 25mins
– 2 rounds: first at 8pm, second at 9pm
– members can play in 1 or both rounds, i.e 8-9pm, 9-10pm or 8-10pm
– pairings will be matched initially by rating
– recording of moves is optional
Just come along on the night to play but for planning purposes a reply here or email to firstname.lastname@example.org would be helpful.
