"Welsh Trios" are a new type of tournament run by the Welsh Correspondence Chess Federation.
Trios will be for three players only, with two games against each player (four games in total for each player).
These tournaments will be played online on the ICCF webserver; the standard time control of 10 moves in 35 days will be used. Games will be rated by ICCF.
Trios are open to all Welsh players (players who are currently registered as Welsh on the ICCF server, or new players who were born in, or who currently reside in, Wales), membership is not required.
Players may have two free entries to the trios each calendar year (so get your 2012 entries in now!). You may enter more than two trios per year, however there will be an entry fee of £5.00 for your third and subsequent entry in the same calendar year.
Players new to correspondence chess are very welcome to enter the trios; this is a great introduction to the game for new players because it only involves four games and is rated. Please circulate this information around your clubs and your other chess playing friends!
To enter, please contact me ([email protected]) giving details of your ICCF ID number if you have one (if you don't, I can register you - I just need your full name and email address). Entry is continuous, new sections will be started when vacant slots are filled.
Thanks! Austin Lockwood
