12th ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

Post by CRoberson » Wed Jun 13, 2018 8:05 pm

The 12th Annual ACCA Computer Rapid Chess Championships will be held with the rules and TC of the previous years.
This year, there are many conflicts with other tournaments in July and other conflicts in August.
So, the voting is open for weekends in September and the first 3 weekends in October.
For the first round of voting, I only want the absolutely can not dates. This will reduce the choices to the voting list.

So, what weekends can you NOT compete:
Sept 1-2
Sept 8-9
Sept 15-16
Sept 22-23
Sept 29-30
Oct 6-7
Oct 13-14
Oct 20-21

There isn't a rating limit for entries. If we have a large diverse turnout, we might split into groups by rating as is done in USCF tournaments.
Potentially we could have divisions such as Open, U2400, U2000 .... where U means Under.

The weekend of 22 Sept. is a bit difficult for me, the other weekends will be fine. I give preference to the weekends in early Sept. instead of Oct.

Felix tells me that the weekends of Sept 22 and 29 are bad for him but all others are good.
