Play Like A World Champ For The Next Five Weeks

Posted: 10/10/2013 by Ian in Club News

In recognition of  the upcoming Anand-Carlsen World chess championship on November 6th we will have a World Champ themed tournament for the next 5 weeks. Each night you get the chance to play like a former world champ!! This will be a ten round Swiss system tournament with two games each night. Similar to our “unusual openings”  tournament of last year the first eight moves (taken from world championship matches) will be played out on the board, but then it is up to you from then on. Time control will be 20 + 0 and guests are welcome to take part. Games will not attract a club rating. For week one the games will come from the Steinitz-Zukertort World Championship Match of 1886 and  the Lasker-Steinitz World Championship match of 1894. Games start 7:20 sharp, so don’t be late
