Our Hammersmith Summer of Chess continues this coming Monday 3rd July with a team Rapidplay tournament at The Albion.
The tournament will kick off just after 7.30pm, lasting until around 10pm, with each player assigned to one of four teams. Everybody will get to play three games against similarly-rated opponents on each of the other teams.
Time control will be 20 minutes for all moves, with no increment, and the games will not be graded.
It’s an open event – no need to pre-register, but latecomers should be aware that they may not be able to participate once the teams have been sorted and the first games have kicked off! Non-members and casual drop-ins are of course very welcome!
Anyone not wanting to take part in the tourney is welcome to join us for the evening and play some regular blitz/casual chess on the side.
Lastly, and most importantly… a mystery prize will be awarded to the winning team!! Come on down – should be a great evening of chess!
While we’re on the subject, we have finalised details of our Summer Training evenings – save the following dates:
- 17th July – Carsten gives us his analysis of some games submitted by members
- 7th August – Bajrush presents an evening of Openings and Tactics
- 4th September – Matteo takes us through the Caro Kann Defence
