Doncaster Chess Congress


Changes in the Congress for 2019

< Back to Home Page

The following are changes, as compared with previous years’ events, in the 2019 congress.


Entry Secretary

Peter Ackley has taken over as entry secretary for the congress.

Time Control

Increments have been added to the time control.  Now:


the time each player will have to complete the game will be 1 hour and 40 minutes with a 10-second increment added after each move from move 1.


Playing Area

After playing in the gym (ground floor) in 2018, we are now back in the main hall (first floor) as in years before 2018.


The prize-giving ceremony has been abolished, to ease the strain on aging organisers.  Prizes will be sent on by post, so make sure we have your postal address.
