Dear Chess Friend,
We will be running the second iteration of the Heaton Cup (an online 6 round swiss tournament played over 6 weeks). The aim of the tournament is to support players looking to improve their chess, practice their long-play skills before real OTB chess resumes, and to give less experienced players the chance to gain experience of long-play.
The unique element of the tournament is that all games are analysed by the tournament organisers, and shared via round reports, and lichess studies. The tournament is free, but all participants must be ECF Members/Supporters.
Please can you pass this e-mail onto any players who might be interested in playing.
Registration form: https://forms.gle/jhr8ScjgtMvJj8vo8
Six rounds, swiss system, single section
Monday evenings at 7pm (but players are encouraged to agree other times).
Time control: 60 mins + 15 second per move
Suitable for all playing levels (last time we had near-beginners to 2200 ECF graded players)
Played on Lichess
Participation is free, but players must be ECF Members / Supporters
Games will be ECF Online rated
If you have any queries, please e-mail MCFOnlineComp@gmail.com
