The Cheshire Go Tournament is being held again this year at Frodsham Community Centre alongside the Frodham Weekend Chess Congress.

The format of the Go event is designed to cater for both strong and weaker players, part of a old BGA strategy to provide events suitable for lower graded players. Recent Cheshire Go Tournaments were in the same format.

Format

Up to eight top graded/rated players may play in a three-round Swiss-style group to determine the Cheshire Open Go Champion. Other players will play in a five-round rapid play handicapped Swiss-style group to determine the Cheshire Rapid Go Handicap Champion.
It is also possible to enter the Frodham Weekend Chess Congress to play on Friday night and on Sunday.

Time Limits

Top group 60 minutes, with overtime of 40 in 5 minutes.
Handicap group 30 minutes, with overtime of 40 in 5 minutes.

Prizes

Top group 1st and 2nd
Handicap 1st and others with 4 wins (youth and beginner prizes at organiserís discretion)
