2020 Online Interclub Matches on chess.com

May 12, 2020

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until 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.

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