Rated Correspondence Chess!
Rated Correspondence Chess on the Internet Chess Club is available
and we want you to be a part of it!
There are many events that you can choose to participate in,
and you can get a correspondence rating. All play will take place
on the ICC through the correspondence chess system already
Becoming a member:
Currently, to play correspondence chess on the ICC all you have
to do is be a paid member. With that ICC membership, you are
entitled to join Double Round Robin style Quad tournaments. This
gives you 6 games, 3 as white and 3 as black, and has been the staple
diet for tournament hungry correspondence players on the ICC for
years. See help CC-Quads for more info on these unrated events.
This will not change, meaning, membership in the rated
correspondence system will not be required to continue playing
unrated quad events. However, to take advantage of what the rated
system has to offer such as a correspondence rating, and a variety
of tourney formats, membership (free) will be required.
Membership, which simply provides the correspondence tournament
directors with information that will better assist you, is free and
can be obtained by filling out the template below and sending it to
Beats20Cents at Beats20Cents@chessclub.com.
There are several accounts that are used in this
CorrSuggest- For suggestions on improving the correspondence program.
CorrRating- Will be used for handling rating of correspondence games.
CorrEvent- Entry into correspondence events will be handled here.
