    @antichrist sorry I accidentally deleted my last post but I think all chess players are thinking the same right now.

    Great initiative. Can chess players without a rating play in this tournament?

    Hey! For the tournament we have asked that players provide a FIDE ID so if you have one of those but no rating that it okay. It is more or less to prove identity in case any fairplay measures come into effect. If you have a FIDE ID and want to play then let me know otherwise we will need proof of identity another way . Hope this makes sense,
    Jack.
