Amateur Championship 2012: An Opportunity for Recreational Players

Quite a lot of people attend our tournaments, but we have been getting many suggestions about a certain aspect of the current model. In the open category, the stronger players tend to win much more often than recreational players. Thus, a new model of tournament has been created.

If you are an amateur, recreational player with limited experience, you may have tough time among the more advanced opponents. As we would like to offer an opportunity to enjoy chess tournaments to everybody, a tournament with an upper rating limit has been planned.

Tournament’s condition have been set in such a way that almost every recreational player should be able to attend. The highest possible rating to take part in the tournament is set to 1500. If you have rating of 1500 or lower, you can register to the tournament at our Tournaments section.

The tournament is to be held on Sunday,  9.12.2012 at 18:00. Player finishing at the first place will recieve a trophy, visible in his profile.
