The first Rapid of the season will take place on this coming Thursday 25th, starting at 7.45. This is a good opportunity to play reasonable length games OTB.
The format will be four rounds with time control of 15mins + 10 sec.
With a scheduled max of 50 mins per round the starting times are 7.45, 8.35, 9.25, 10.15, finishing at 11.05. In the event of an exceptionally long game the tie will be adjudicated.
The draw will be seeded so that large rating gaps are avoided as far as possible.
“The more the merrier” so make it if you can. If you can’t make the first round there is no problem joining in at round 2 with a bye.
