Celebration International Festival 2018
EVENING MATCHES FOR ALL
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The idea of this event is to allow more people to be able to take part in one of the Jessie Gilbert Celebration International events, rather than just those who can attend on all 5 evenings. Players can enter 1-5 rounds on a pro-rata cost basis and still have a chance of a prize. The entry for each round is £5. It is mainly about giving players rated and graded games. Let us explain the process:
You enter. In doing so you choose how many of the 5 nights you wish to play - and state which nights you are registering for. Nights you cannot play, you do not enter! You can subsequently add further nights as circumstances allow you - as long as you are registered by 3pm on the day of any match. We will list all bookings on the web site so you can see who is being paired on each evening. After 3pm each day we will pair the field, but not as you would a conventional tournament! In fact, the actual score of the player will not come into the pairing system used.
ROUND 2 and beyond:
90 minutes for all moves plus 30 seconds Fischer increments will be added from move 1.
Approx 50% of entry
will be put into the prize fund for each event.

The start time is subject to players having been allowed a half hour break after finishing their afternoon game - if they are playing in that competition. With the later start of the afternoon event on Monday, this could be more likely that evening. A shorter time control might be needed in certain cases where the start of a match is delayed.
