Re: British championship grading sections in the main event

Kevin, no not all - I would argue that all the players at that rating are paying a higher entry fee and so deserve a shot at a grading prize. but the people that are below that don't have any chance of winning and I'm asked the ECF to either change the grading prize to include 2050 and under or do ...

Re: British championship grading sections in the main event

>they should have done this as 2200 and under.< I have just read this thread and I am amazed nobody has analysed the fairly obvious objectives. I skimmed a bit and may have missed that point though. The principal has always been that anybody should be able to qualify for the British Chess Champions...

Re: British championship grading sections in the main event

Just a thought on an alternative on the rating prize debate - what you could do is make those u2051 eligible for the rating prize, but on the basis that they are rated as a 2051. you would this so, but no one from the ecf has offer that or doing a u2501 and under, what is an extra £250?, you might ...

Re: British championship grading sections in the main event

i do understand the ECF need to make a stand, but if you are grading this year as under 2051, and paying £300 to play in the main championship to win nothing, what is the point of them entering the event, if they have qualifying, my thing is that maybe they should have done an u2051 and below gradin...

Re: British championship grading sections in the main event

if someone has qualifying for the event, they should be able to try and win something, an person who is under 2051 and wanted to play, will have to pay £300 to win nothing!! Maybe the ECF need to just give a small grading prize like £250, at least it is something to play for. As I said before, if th...
