The 2023-24 Championship is five rounds, November 2023 – April 2024, one game each month, for the titles of Club Champion, U1700 Champion and U1400 champion. The rounds are drawn by Swiss pairing, using Oct 23 ratings. Normal Shropshire Chess League rules apply. The timing is 1 hour 25 minutes, with 10 second increments. One point for a win, half for a draw. In the event of a tie at the end of round five, a tie break round will be played. Games will be ECF rated. White has the responsibility of arranging the match in each round. Matches must be played by the end of each month unless special arrangements are made with the controller. Please let Paul know the result of your game.
