Full Details (please check for updates)
Matches are clock mandatory and are set to 90 seconds + 12s delay.
We only have a few clocks, so if you don't own one, you will be asked to use a mobile app timer. These can be downloaded for free from Google Play (and I assume from Apple store). Leap make a simple chess timer which can be bought for around £15 from eBay and Amazon.
*The £1000 prize money is subject to 64 players. In case we are not sold out, there will be £15 deducted from this for each unsold place.
Rules are as set down by the UKBGF here.
If there is any problem or dispute, you must report it to the TD as soon as it is noticed. There will be a ruling committee (RC) made up of players at the event. You may appeal the decision of the TD to the RC who's decision is final.
Your entry is not confirmed until you have paid your registration fee. Only the first 64 players who pay will be confirmed. Everyone else will go on a waiting list in case any players drop out.
