The second season of the States and Regions Correspondence Chess Championship will start on 15th April 2019.
This year, the format will be slightly different, instead of the Hutton pairing format, we will be using a more conventional all-play-all format. Each section will be made up of 13 or 15 teams (so each player will play 12 or 14 games), and teams will consist of four players.
More details are available on the WCCF website, here:
ICCF title norms may be available on some boards, depending on the range of ratings.
Once again, the Triple Block time control system will be used, with all games ending within 350 days.
The entry fee will be £20.00 GBP, however this will be reduced to £10.00 for WCCF International and Premium members. Membership of WCCF is open to international players at £10.00 and to Welsh players at £5.00, please see our website for details of membership:
(Only the TC is required to be a member in order to benefit from the discounted rate)
Please send entries to the WCCF Secretary ([email protected]) by 8th April. Teams should represent a particular county, state, city, region, etc. of your country, however there are no particular qualification criteria; membership of the team is at the captain’s discretion.
Entries should state:
- The name of the region the team represents
- The country the region is in
- The ICCF ID and name of the team captain (the TC need not be a player)
- The ICCF IDs and names of each of the four team members, in board order
Please do not hesitate to email me for further information.
