The Institute for Chess Excellence will be organising the first of its monthly FIDE Rating Tournaments on 14-20 August 2017.
It will be played as a 10 player round robin tournament with the time control of 90 minutes each to the finish (used for players rated under 2200) but if we have players above 2200, then it will be 120 minutes each to the finish and we will adjust the schedule accordingly.
The schedule will be one game each on weekdays 7-10 p.m., and two games on each of the weekend days 10 a.m -1 p.m. and 3-5 p.m.
Entries will be on a first come first serve basis.
Fee as below:
1600-1799: RM 300
1800-1999: RM 200
2000-2200: RM 100
Unrated players can only apply but if accepted, there will not be more than two places allocated.
The winner will receive RM 1,000 and earn the right place to one of the proposed quarterly ICE International Masters tournaments when meeting the minimum rating requirement.
