ICCF-Europa invites all its member federations to enter a team to a new team tournament to be played on the ICCF webserver. Each member federation may enter one team of 4 players (and a team captain).
The tournament is likely to be organized in
one or two stages
(it depends on the number of entries). Pairings will use a Double Round Robin system whereby players play 2 games with alternate colours against each opponent (both games against the same opponent will start with the same randomized position of the pieces but these will vary against other opponents). Time control is
30 days for 10 moves
and the games will be
rated in ICCF Chess 960 rating system
. Members of the first three teams in the final will be awarded medals and certificates.
The tournament will start on 15th of September 2020.
There is no entry fee for this tournament.
The first Cup attracted 9 teams, the second Cup was played with 12 teams. I invite all national federations to join this tournament and let players enjoy play at chess 960.
If you are interested in being part of the Welsh team please get in touch by 23/8/2020
