Get ready for the second NSDCA Online rapid play tournament. As before the games will be on Lichess.
The time controls are the same as in the 2020 tournament, 25 minutes with a 5 second increment. The matches will consist of 2 games versus the same opponent on the same evening, one game with each colour.
The proposed start date is week commencing Monday 18th January and as with the previous on line league we would play on the alternative week to the 4NCL on line league.
Alberto is also looking to run a congress style event over several weeks. This will allow players to be paired more equally, possibly in different graded sections. This will be a single game at a longer time control, 45 mins + 15 secs.
The event will be 4 section swiss style ungraded, so will be open to everyone and you are not required to be ECF members. The event is free and there will be no prize, except for the congratulations from your opponents 🙂
