The San Gabriel Valley Chess Club is happy to announce the next 5-round Swiss tournament starting Tuesday February 8th. Games will be played Tuesdays at 6.45 pm and the time control is G85 D5. The address is:
943 E Altadena Dr, Altadena, CA 91001 (right behind the Altadena Community Church)
It is a one section Open but will have accelerated pairings for the first two rounds. This helps to make for smaller rating differences in the early rounds. Accelerated pairings give the upper half of the field a virtual point to start. But unlike our last event we will remove the virtual point after Round 2 so the standings show actual scores.
There will be a first prize for the Open and a first prize for under 1600. The amount will be based on the number of entries. The entry fee is $30.00 for advance registration and $35.00 for registration after February 8th.
