Are you a junior chess player looking for great chess playing experience? If so, here is a great opportunity!

The weekly Wessex online chess tournaments are currently the only local chess tournaments being played on Lichess that are open to all local players. These tournaments are a great chance to play games against strong players (both adults and juniors) which are recorded and can then be analysed afterwards.

In summary:

  • There are 5 rounds, Swiss format
  • Time control is 5 minutes + 5 seconds
  • The tournament is Rated
  • 1 minute between rounds
  • Kick off is at 7:30 pm.

To join the 4NCL Wessex Some Stars team you will need to be a lichess member and click on the following link …

The tournaments are not always on the same day of the week but you will get a lichess message telling you about the next tournament and will be to see upcoming tournaments on the team page.

I would highly recommend these Wessex Weekly tournaments.

If you have any questions then please contact the orgnaiser, Keith Gregory, via lichess – his username is KeithDFG.
