Thanks to John Mcintyre for taking time to organise the tournament this year.
A D Brown Challenge Tournament 2016/17
Each year, the Club runs the A. D. Brown tournament for members of the club. The format is an ingenious one, devised by Allan Brown. It has run successfully for many years.
- It is open to all members of the club for participation, but only those under a certain grade can win the title.
- The idea is partly to encourage experience in standard time control games* to be played on club nights. (So if a player is not involved in a team match, they can still get a graded game completed).
- Players score 1 point for playing a game, even if they lose, 2 points for a draw, and 3 points for a win.
- Matches are arranged on an ad hoc basis.
- * 1 hour for 30 moves + 15 min quickplay finish.
