Time limit: 1 hour and 30 minutes for each player plus 30 seconds a move from the start of the game.

Players who are not present after 30 minutes may be defaulted and their opponents re-paired. If you are running late contact me (07855 036 537).

Alex

The format you have used is ideal for this forum, but not the best format for the web. Can you upload the results to Tournament Director's Results Service, then provide the link to the London Chess Classic webmaster? This is how all the weekender rapidplay results were done.

Regards

Neville Belinfante
