2020 Online Interclub Matches on chess.com

June 2, 2020


Interclub 2020 using chess.com

Interclub 2020 will be something a little different to what players are used to. This year, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we will be playing via CHESS.COM – an online chess platform for playing chess.

These matches will not be rated – the ACF will certainly not approve them because they are online with no guarantee against cheating.

The way these matches will work is similar to the normal Interclub Matches – teams of 4, in playing order, playing each other using the time rate of 60 minutes Plus a 30 second increment.

We have set up a special Club on Chess.com to post the draws and the results each week and while the first round was a bit chaotic, it should all go very smoothly now.

We only have 5 teams in A Grade so would greatly appreciate one or three more clubs – perhaps Matisons, Adelaide Uni and Modbury might like to join in the fun – and they can have catch-up games.

We have 9 teams in B Grade but of course would love another team to make it even better!

SACA has set up a special club for the Matches and you can switch between two Forums to find out who you are playing etc by simply clicking the label.
To access our Chess.com club:

You have to be admitted to the club first time and from then on it is easy!

Here are the draws for this week – Tuesday 2nd June 2020.

SACA 2020 A Grade – Round 4

Apologies for the delay in putting up the draws for this competition – unfortunately I was expecting more than 5 teams in A Grade and not expecting an extra team in B Grade.  Therefore initially I decided to keep the options open with A Grade, anticipating that teams from Adelaide University, Modbury and Matisons would all turn up in the first few weeks – but sadly no! Therefore the poor Swiss Perfect program used to do these draws has ground to a halt for A Grade and I have created a second RR tournament giving those two teams who have not yet received the BYE, the BYE in the first two rounds.  With only 5 teams in the competition it is going to be inevitable that some teams will play each other twice – so enjoy the challenge!
