1st night – Inter-school chess over-the-board in term 3

Updated July 27th, 2020

Inter-school Chess in Term 3

The SAJCL is very conscious of the desire by many students, teachers and parents to see over-the-board chess matches played this year. We have just run the State Junior Championships at the Chess Centre and believe they went very well and followed fairly strict Covid-19 Guidelines.

Therefore we plan to run a short 4-week series of inter-school matches at the Chess Centre, 10 Ranelagh St Adelaide, Prince Alfred College and Walford School through August:

Friday: 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th August 2020

If you know of another venue that can cope safely with 8 teams, please let us know ASAP.

There is a limit on the number of students permitted at these venues and so, to simplify matters we will limit the number of students at each to 96, and this means we will have a maximum of 24 teams of 4 players at each venue, split into 3 competitions of 8 teams. Each team will play the other 7 teams by playing 2 matches on the first 3 nights and a single match on the final night.

The Time limit for the primary matches will be 15 minutes per player per game – so each match will take at the most 30 minutes and the double matches one hour. The Secondary matches will have a time limit of 25 minutes each per player per game and so each matches could go for 50 minutes and those nights with 2 matches 1 hour 40 minutes.

The primary Matches will start at 4pm and the Secondary Matches at the Chess Centre at 7pm. The cost per team to take part in these matches will be just $40 for the entire series.

Sunday Challenges on Tornelo in August

Come and try an online chess competition this August on Sundays from 4pm – 6pm .. it should introduce you to a world of chess that is simply amazing and fun.

To play, simple copy and paste the following links into any browser

2nd August:  https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/sa-chess/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-blitz-challenge–1

9th August: https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/sa-chess/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-rapid-challenge

16th August: https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/sa-chess/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-blitz-challenge–4

23rd August: https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/sa-chess/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-rapid-challenge–1

30th August: https://tornelo.com/chess/orgs/sa-chess/events/saca-sajcl-sunday-blitz-challenge–5

 

and register to play in either the Adult or Junior event.

It costs $5 for Juniors and $10 for Adults and you pay by credit card when you register.

And then, at 3:45pm the Lobby is open and you simply login. You can enter late if necessary and play fewer games, it may depend on what you have on Sunday! You will be paired with an opponent and each player will have 10 minutes for the game and then you play your best – no help from anyone or anything! – and you play 5 or 6 games depending on how quickly the tournaments go.

The Tornelo program provides the board and the clock and once you get used to it, you will find it is very easy. It is not a knockout tournament and after each round you will be paired with someone on, or close to, the same score.

There are small prizes in all the events (and yes, Juniors can play in the Adult group if they would like to! but not vice-versa!).

For more details, simply ring Alan Goldsmith on 041067 2481 or check www.sachess.org.au or www.sajuniorchess.org
