Event Details

The Rapidplay Open is a 6-round FIDE-rated tournament.

Time Control: All moves in 15 minutes plus a 10 second increment per move from move 1. Default time: 10 minutes after the scheduled start time.
Non English players must provide their FIDE Identification Number (FIN) at the time of entry. If you do not have a FIN, you must apply to your own federation for a FIN.

Sections: FIDE rated players may play in the sections other than the Open if they are rated below those levels irrespective of ECF grade. Players without a FIDE rating may play in the U2050, U1825, or U1600 provided they have an ECF grade below 180, 150 or 120 respectively.

Levels of Membership Required: All entrants are entitled to claim a £10 discount off the entry fee if they are Silver, Gold or Platinum members of the ECF.

Grades: FIDE Rapidplay ratings published in the December 2017 list will be used for this event. For players without a current FIDE Rapidplay rating, the following grades / ratings will be used instead: (1) ECF rapidplay grade, (2) FIDE standard play, (3) ECF standard play, (4) Other national rating.

Byes: Players can take a half point bye between rounds 1-5 provided it is requested before the end of the previous round.
