Re: Hastings Congress

During the Open National Championship a few years ago in SVK a Slovakian chess player (who drank at night) fell asleep on the table next his board and woke up after about 45 minutes . His opponent from Sweden stood up and waited until he woke up. It was degrading! I think in this case the arbiter ne...

Re: Hastings Congress

If you follow the Swiss system, can not happen, that the player with Rp 2416 is 40 ranks lower than player with Rp 1940. Swiss supported with bucholtz as a side criterium follows a Statistics theory. If you support Acceleration system with the number of wins as a side criterium, results looks like a...

Re: Women's Recruitment Officer

When IM Martin writes the Northern Semifinal is in Bramley, it means is in Bramley, no in Bromley.
Bramley in Surrey.

Re: Women's Recruitment Officer

Both semifinals are not in the same day, Southern is the 12th and Northern is the 11th. It clashes with the 4ncl ? IM A. Martin will be there in Southern semifinal with more than 200 school girls, most of them new in chess. The biggest UK female chess event ( I attended it with girls in 2013 and 201...

Re: Chess is not a sport but a game. So what’s the difference?

USA, Canada or Australia are not in EU. Chess is the sport in Slovakia. It means chess is also for children from the families with low income in Slovakia.

Re: Chess is not a sport but a game. So what’s the difference?

The petition to recognise chess as a sport . I was born more than half century ago and chess was the sport in my country at that time and is the sport till now. No one doubts it, although you might have some jokes about this theme , but jokes are about everything. So I never thought that chess could...

Re: Refunding Entry Fees to Withdrawn Players

-your assertion that English congresses in general don’t offer entry fee refunds as a matter of principle is complete nonsense- It was not my assertion, it was an assertion of Newcastle Masters Congress Director. I have withdrawn my daughter only once for the last five years, in 2017 from the Britis...

Re: Refunding Entry Fees to Withdrawn Players

At the 28th of January I cancelled her registration, because she needed to be in the school ( the University) , she had any test which was 25% of her exam. They accepted also her entry, also her cancellation...

Re: Refunding Entry Fees to Withdrawn Players

Thank you Michael for this topic. I see it is about Svetlana - I have recently come across a case where an entrant entered but had to pull out more than two weeks ahead of the event. Not returning a £60 entry fee and claiming it to be normal UK practice does seem incorrect to me. - I will try to wri...

Re: Xenophobic abuse in British chess in the post-Brexit world

Has anyone had any experience of such racist, or xenophobic abuse, apparently related to Brexit, either online or in the real world? Hi Paul, I have this xenofobic experience. My daughter ( she is 18 years old member of SVK federation), could not be entered to British Chess Championship 2017 , howev...
