ICC News Item #1717
You are invited to join the longest running tournament at ICC. The 84th Standard Tournament (October) begins Tuesday, October 7 on ICC. The entry deadline is 10 pm Sunday, October 5. You play one standard time-control game at 60 0 on four consecutive Tuesdays. You can choose to play in the 2pm, 8pm or 11pm sections. Top finishers receive prizes of ICC membership extensions. Type help STtourney on ICC for the schedule of dates as well as the rules of the tourney. Players new to the tourney should also type help STtourneyFAQ for answers to some common questions. You may enter only one section/month. You can register online at https://www.chessclub.com/sttourney/signup.html. Or you can send the message described in the STtourney help file to the STtourney or STtourneyEurope accounts, depending on which section you enter. Effective with the October 2003 tourney, prizes are improved. In addition, the rule for late arrival changes. The 30 minutes now allowed for late arrival will be reduced to 15 minutes, after which a forfeit may be claimed against a "no-show" opponent. See the STtourney help file for details on both changes.
