Chess Events for Amateurs
as they fight for all of us on the front lines of the free world.
CFC-rated tournaments for all ages and rating levels.
Intended more for players who play for fun, not cash prizes:
Less commuting: 2 days (not 3).
One less trip to the venue fighting Toronto's traffic.
Less waiting: 4 hours between rounds (not 6 hours).
No need to kill 2+ hours before the next round.
Faster play: Time control of 60 mins + 30 secs/move.
Faster to fit in 4 hours per round.
Slow enough to still be a classical chess experience.
Less entry fees: $60 for 6 games.
About half the price of some other events.
Less cash prizes: Less fees mean less cash prizes.
Most amateurs aren't in it to win money anyway.
