ICC News Item #1368
Chessclub.com is adding two new sections to the popular monthly Standard Tournament! We had a number of requests from European members to hold sections at an earlier time, so that they could participate. Starting in May, there will be an Open and an Under-1500 section at 2pm EDT (6pm GMT). Everyone is welcome to enter the 2pm sections, whether or not they live in Europe. The sections, rules, and account names for entering and pairings have been changed. Everyone who is interested in playing should read the new rules carefully in help STtourney even if you have played in these events before. The May Standard Tournament begins Tuesday, May 9. The entry deadline is 11pm Sunday, May 7. You play one game each Tuesday, with a time control of 60 0. You can choose to play in the 2pm, 8pm or 11pm sections. There are prizes of ICC membership extensions. Type help STtourney on chessclub.com for the rules and how to enter. You enter by sending the message described in the help file to the STtourney or STtourneyEurope accounts.
