    MCC Allegro 2020

    The Melbourne Chess Club Saturday Allegro

    Where: The Melbourne Chess Club: 66 Leicester Street, Fitzroy

    When: Every Saturday 2pm (finishes about 6pm), except the Saturday of Melbourne Cup (or as announced*).

    Format: 7 round Swiss, 13 minutes plus 2 second increment per move (you play all rounds).

    Cost: $12 Adult Member, $10 Junior Member, $22 Adult non-Member, $20 Junior non-Member. (GMs/WGMs free, Club Members IMs/WIMs and FMs/WFMs Free)

    Prizes: About 80% of the collected entry fees go back into the prizes. Depending on number of entries there may be an open division & two rating group divisions.

    A "Jackpot" prize is awarded to any player who wins an Allegro with a perfect score (7 points out of 7 games). The Jackpot starts at $10 and increases by $10 each week it is not won. If won, the Jackpot resets to $10 for the next Allegro.

    A "Biggest Upset" is awarded to the player who scores the biggest upset win over an opponent (so long as the rating difference between the players is at least 300 Tornelo rating points).

    Entry: Show up on Saturday, before 2pm. No need to enter in advance.

    Ratings: Rated using Tornelo. You'll receive a rating after your first allegro.

    Following results on Tornelo from home there seems to be a big gap between the masters>2150 and strong club players 1850><2000.
    An idea is to have a double game (wh&Bl) 4 Player Scheveningen Round Robin for the top 4 seeds. Something for the committee to consider. (Maybe borrow 2 DGT boards from BHCC??? to make it online thing)
    But in any case Allegro has come a long way from the days of <30 adult regulars (2010/11)-Well done to MCC

    Why do some participants have different group names?
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Allegro is on@!
    Join the Chinese New Year Allegro - some fun chess as always.
    Note that due to the RV Memorial taking place at MCC - the Allegro will be played in the backroom!
