To help prepare our students to compete beyond Chess Rising Stars, we are delighted to announce our first Online Grand Prix.
You can find our free Grand Prix tournaments on our lichess team page this term. Chess Rising Stars students, parents and friends are all welcome to take part.
Each tournament will have 5 rounds of 10+5 and points will be tallied across the 6 Grand Prix events. We have chosen this time control to mimic the playing conditions in the Junior Four Nations Chess League Online (J4NCLO).
Prizes will be awarded based on the number of entries and will be confirmed at a later date. Your top 5 scores from the 6 Grand Prix events will count towards this.
The online chess tournaments will take place on the following Sundays at 4 pm (GMT) in the Spring Term 2024:
10th Mar = GP 5
17th Mar = GP 6
To ensure the integrity of the Chess Rising Stars Online Grand Prix tournaments are maintained, we will use the lichess cheat detection system alongside the observation and judgement of our experienced coaching team.
The Chess Rising Stars London Academy team hope to see many of you there.
