Re: Rate of Play

Why don't you create a poll on the forum and see what the general opinion is?

Is there such an app out there?

Re: e2e4 Uxbridge Training Report

That sounds like some really great feedback. I look forward to being beating by girls on a regular basis in the not too distant future :)

Would you consider it at an e2e4 event?

Re: Women's In-Tournament Training

Oddly enough with all the fighting, no one seems to have noticed that the "free" entry is only available as a package deal from Sabrina with the coaching. The entry form is on the very first post. The Congress detail page at http://www.e2e4.org.uk/uxbridge/Mar2011/index.htm doesn't mention free ent...

Re: Women's In-Tournament Training

Roger, a highest placed welsh would be fine as I've paid to enter in the first place. My issue was with women who pay nothing yet walk away with something. Financially equivalent though. Suppose the entry fee is £25 for everyone, whether Welsh or not. There's a £ 100 best Welsh prize. Four Welsh ...

Re: Women's In-Tournament Training

As somebody who has voiced similar concerns to yourself regarding free entry etc. I think as Sean explained, it's really just part of promoting the tournament. It's not greatly different from having free entry for Sambuca players or a prize for the highest placed Welsh. Roger, a highest placed wels...

the phase about 'Speaking to the organ grinder .. etc.. etc...'' comes to mind ! Alan, May I plead with you to desist with your vilification of Sabrina on this thread? As somebody who has voiced similar concerns to yourself regarding free entry etc. I'd hope you'd heed my advice. I acknowledge you'...

Re: Women's In-Tournament Training

Re: Women's In-Tournament Training

Do you feel the same about discounts for juniors, unemployed, senior citizens? I use those examples because they are not chess related eg by title or rating. Or would you be happier if they were to receive free entry but couldn't win a prize? There is common link between the 3 examples above. They ...
