Autumn EOM Leg 2: November 29 (Sunday) Sheung Wan
In October we resumed our popular End of the Month cycle. The Autumn 2020 EOM will be played over 3 months October, November and December. All our students from Stepping Stones 2 to Step 3 from Sheung Wan, Discovery Bay, and private and online students as well as all our school ECA students are invited to join. External players are more than welcome to participate.
Entry fees in this event will be donated to Alzheimer's Research
Entries are limited to the first 24 registrations
Players will be assigned to a fixed group for the whole term and play for medals and trophies in their group. On the tournament day each player can face players from another group (from a higher group if the player is doing well, from a lower group if doing not so well).
The groups will be assigned based on previous tournament results, using our Caissa Internal Rating (CIR) or other form of assessment by the Caissa coaches.
How does it work?
For every group, the winner, 2nd place and 3rd place (depending on the size of the group) of each EOM event receive a medal. The players at the end of the 3 months with the most points will be the Autumn 2020 EOM Champions and receive a trophy (best 2 results of the term will be considered)
At each monthly EOM we have also some smaller prizes. Focus is on social chess with a flavor of competition as a friendly atmosphere is a key feature of the EOM.
The EOM is not suited for players who have several years experience playing tournaments. Players are welcome up to maximum Step 3 level.
The second leg of the 2020 Autumn Cycle will be played on Sunday November 29th at our Sheung Wan Centre, divided in two groups:
Groups C/D: 13.30-15.30
Groups A/B: 16.00-18.30
Registration will be closed on November 24th or after reaching 24 entries in each group, whatever happens first.
