Club Knockout ***NEW***

A new event is introduced this season, an individual Knockout competition at standard play with draw odds. All games G80+10 and ECF standard rated according to the result on the board

Tuesdays 7 November & 2 January have been set aside with draws on the night to reduce the field to a last 16 who then have about a month to play each round until a final two compete in the Final which we hope to hold alongside Bonanza Night at the end of May. 

Draw odds

To progress:

  • if there is a difference of 100 rating points or more the stronger player must win whilst the weaker player need only to draw;
  • If less than 100 rating points difference the player with the white pieces must win whilst the player with the black pieces need only to draw;

Random pairings for each round. Anyone can win!

More details in due course.
