2020 Online Interclub Matches on chess.com

July 7, 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:

Please check the Chess.com site for the draws for the week.

Here are the draws for this week – Tuesday 7th July 2020.

SACA 2020 A Grade – Round 9


No Name           Total  Result   Name     Total

 1  Adelaide      [24.5]     :      K&B A2  [17.0]
 2  Alice Springs [23.0]     :      Norwood [13.5]
 3  K&B A1        [18.0]  0.0:0.0  BYE           
Because the pairing program stalled in the first part of the a Grade Matches two of the teams did not get the extra BYE and some teams missed playing their opponents for the first time – thus it is necessary for 2 extra matches needing to be played between just two of these teams – hence rounds 10 and 11. Confusing? very sorry but life is like that these days.
Rounds 10 and 11 will be played on coming Tuesdays OR if you are a member of the teams playing, you can arrange to play them earlier but you need to post results when you’ve played the games.   If you haven’t played them by 22 July they will deemed forfeit.

Round 10 – just: SACA Interclub A 10 K&B A1 Vs Alice Springs

Adelaide Vs BYE 4-0

Norwood Vs BYE 0-0

K&B A2 Vs BYE 4-0

Round 11 – Just:  K&B A1 Vs Norwood

SACA 2020 B Grade – Round 9 – Final Round


No Name                Total   Result   Name        Total
