Rapid Chess – Sunday Only

**********New to Warfare 2023*********

Rapid Chess – a form of Fast chess or speed chess, is a type of chess in which each player is given less time to consider their moves than classical chess time controls allow. Time controls for each player in a game of rapid chess are more than 10 minutes but less than 60 minutes. Rapid chess can be played with or without time increments for each move. When time increments are used, a player can automatically gain, for instance, ten more seconds on the clock after each move and the total time per player for a 60-move game must be more than 10 minutes but less than 60 minutes.

This is a one day Rapid Chess Event running on the Sunday only.  It will consist of 5 rounds with 20 minutes per person plus 5 seconds per move.   This is intended as a fun event and is not rated.
