Description

We are delighted to announce the fifth WICS tournament to take place on December 5, 2017.

The format will be a swiss tournament, more details here on how it works:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss-system_tournament

Our intention will be to do events every three months, so if you can't make this one, don't worry there will be more opportunities.

Should someone register and then not show up they will be unable to register for the next tournament.

In total there will be up to six rounds, depending on how many people register, with a final for the top two.

Each round will be 30 mins long, meaning 10 mins for each person, playing to a clock, with a 10 min break before the next round commences.

For the Final, each person will have five minutes. In the event there is a tie for second place, there will be a playoff to determine the finalists.

The tournament will be for a maximum of 32 participants. Entry will be 20 PLN with prizes for the winner and runner-up and semi-finalists.

We also have an invigilator, Magda Judek, who will be on hand to score the tournament and advise on points of rules.

Our host is yet to be determined, we will update here on the basis of demand. We will also be supplying boards and clocks.

Come take part and test yourself against the best of the rest of the Warsaw International Chess Community!
