U12 age groups or younger (school year 7 or below)
Entry fee £20, entrants must be ECF silver members or above
Sections: 6 x 8 player all-play-all, 7 rounds
All sections will be ECF rated. I *hope* to make the top 1 or 2 sections FIDE rated as well. The bottom section will be suitable for beginners with little experience of chess.
Prizes : Trophies of 1st/2nd/3rd in each section ; small chocolate prizes for all U8s
Time control: Top sections: 20 min + 10 sec, bottom sections 15 min + 10 second (may be adjusted)
Children must be under the age of 12 on 31st August 2020 (school year 7 or lower). Children aged 11 or over on the day of the tournament must wear a face covering during play.
The overall capacity is 48 children. Children will be split by strength into all-play-all sections. For this purpose a mixture of the July 2020 OTB ECF grading list, current ECF online and OTB ratings, and current lichess rapid ratings will be used.
