The Club nights begin on the 7th of January 2011 with the first two rounds of the Fischer random tournament that will run each Friday in January.
On the first night there will be 2 games for all players. Each game will be 25 minutes for each player with a 10 second increment for each move from the start. Players will get to play from this starting position in both games:
N(on a8)QRNBKRB for black’s first rank
N(on a1)QRNBKRB for white’s first rank
Plan is to have a different opponent and different colour pieces in the second game
For white to king-side castle he moves K to g1 and R(on g1) to f1.
For white to queen-side castle he moves K to c1 and R(on c1) to d1; obviously requiring some usual preparation.
All places will be decided on count back if necessary.
Entry fees $15 for the whole tournament for BHCC and CJCC members.
Visitors $25 for the whole tournament
