Dear chess friends,
the Swedish Corr Chess Federation is celebrating 80 years by organizing a big friendly match, "SSKK vs Rest of The World" on the ICCF-server, hopefully on 80 boards. Starting date: December 1
We would be very pleased and much honoured to see your country participating in this event, by having two players in the World Team:
- one player rated 2100-2600
- one player rated 1400-2099
The Swedish team will have GM:s rated 2500+ on the top 4-5 boards, and SIM/IM rated 2450+ on at least boards 6-12.
Therefore, a world team player 2500+ would be extra welcome, but equally welcome are players below 1700 since we will muster low rated players for the last boards of our team.
I would very much appreciate your kind help in forwarding this invitation. Closing date will be October 8.
Hoping for your kind assistance in the true spirit of AMICI SUMUS
Sture Olsson, SSKK team captain
Anyone wishing to be considered should contact Russell Sherwood by the 8th of October.
