The Internet Chess Club 1 0 Bullet Championship starts Feb 2. This
Championship, like most previous events, consists of three stages:
Qualifiers, Candidates, and Finals. Free-trials members are invited
to play in the first stage, but they cannot advance to later stages
without registering for a paid membership by midnight Sunday Feb 9.
The 1 0 Champs will have an Under 2100 Champion and an Under 1600
Champion. The top four finishers rated under 2100 and under 1600 in
each Qualifier will be invited to the respective Class Finals. Please
see the web page listed below for eligibility requirements and other
details about the class championships.
The first stage will consist of 12 Qualifier events (16 round 1 0
Swisses) during the week of Feb 2 - 8. All Qualifiers will be
held on LittlePer in channel 225 with the exception of Feb 3 9pm and
Feb 9 4pm which will be on Flash in channel 49. We have a goal of
attracting over 1,000 players to the Qualifier series with an average
attendance of 125 players. Play in as many Qualifiers as you can!!
