Caissa Internal Club Tournament: Sheung Wan, September-December 2022
We are organizing a new kind of tournament this year, a Club Tournament aimed to provide a training venue for both our students as well as other chess players interested in a regular game of chess in a club setting. The internal club tournament will not be FIDE rated, hence encouraging players to practice new ideas, test out opening variations and such, without the fear to lose rating points to do so.
There is no better way to get better in chess than to play "long" games and as such we will follow Standard Chess time control: one game per week, 45' + 5'' / move. Games will be played every Saturday 11am-1pm, starting from September 17th.
The pairing will be done using the Keizer system, which allows for players to join whenever they are available. If you won't come you will not get a zero. Although we encourage players, to play as many games as possible, and our CTP students are expected to commit, you can still end high, and be paired against equal level opponnents, with good chess results, even playing less games.
Games will be played in our Sheung Wan center from September 17th to December 10th (12 games, no game on October 1st). The tournament is open to everyone, but we recommend it especially for:
CTP Students (part of the CTP training)
EOM Graduates (Group A season winners)
Step3 and above students
Adults who need flexibility and cannot always commit to play each week.
Depending on your schedule and commitment, you can register for 3 different packages:
Bronze: 4 times
Silver: 8 times
Gold: 12 times
Pairing will be done at 11am on the play day. If you come later, you might be paired against someone who also comes later, but no guarantee.
