|Leicester FIDE Rated Challengers & Get me a Rating All Play Alls
19th-21st June 2009 and 11th-12th July 2009
These events take place over two weekends at 14, Midland Court, Central Park, Lutterworth, Leicestershire LE17 4PN. Playing over two weekends allows players to experience an all play all format without the need to take time off during the week. The Challengers section is aimed at players rated 2000 and above or graded above 150 ECF (or improving players currently playing at this level).
The winner of the Challengers will receive a superb package of free entry to the Uxbridge Masters, together with free accommodation at the venue for the duration of the event. A great way to pay for your entry to the Masters!
The second section is aimed primarily at players rated below 2000 (or graded between 100 ECF and 150 ECF) who want to play 9 competitive games of chess in a friendly atmosphere with the opportunity to gain those all important rating points ; or perhaps obtain their first ever FIDE rating. By playing in this event, an unrated player will be assured of achieving a full FIDE rating as long as all the unrated players score at least a 1/2 point.
