Format The tournament is flexible – players play whichever nights suit them with pairings being made on the evening. Players are usually paired with opponents within their own grading band but late comers may get a difficult draw – so please be prompt.

Time limit Each player gets 1 hour 30 minutes for the complete game.

Prizes will depend on number of entrants.There will be grading bands, again depending on entrants.

Entry Fee £20. Cheques payable to ‘Ulster Chess Union’.

2. If a player does not play in two of the last three rounds they will be assumed to have played and lost 2 games. If they play only one then they will forfeit one game.
3. However if a player has played 14 or more games then they are exempt from rule 2.
4. Scores will be calculated on a percentage basis.

Controller Mark Newman
