Welsh Correspondence Chess Championships

Russell Sherwood  Tuesday, June 1, 2021


The event is stronger than ever with an very interesting Championship section, with an average rating of 2331.  The question on most observers’ minds: Is the “double” possible?

The outright winner receives an engraved trophy and the Welsh Correspondence Chess Master Title. In addition, an outright winner will qualify for a Welsh nomination for the Finals of the British Correspondence Chess Championships (assuming other criteria are met)
