3rd Chess 960 European Team Cup

Sherwood, Russell  Thursday, July 23, 2020

ICCF-Europa invites all its member federations to enter a team to a new team tournament to be played on the ICCF webserver. Each member federation may enter one team of 4 players (and a team captain). 

The tournament is likely to be organized in 

one or two stages 

(it depends on the number of entries). Pairings will use a Double Round Robin system whereby players play 2 games with alternate colours against each opponent (both games against the same opponent will start with the same randomized position of the pieces but these will vary against other opponents). Time control is 

30 days for 10 moves

 and the games will be 

rated in ICCF Chess 960 rating system

. Members of the first three teams in the final will be awarded medals and certificates. 

Start date
The tournament will start on 15th of September 2020

There is no entry fee for this tournament.

The first Cup attracted 9 teams, the second Cup was played with 12 teams. I invite all national federations to join this tournament and let players enjoy play at chess 960.
