HCC Armageddon Blitz

  • Location to be confirmed (map)

A NIGHT OF FUN AND CHESS BOARD DESTRUCTION 

THIS
IS
THE

HCC ARMAGEDDON BLITZ

 

General Information:

Due to the success of last year's inaugural HCC Armageddon, the tournament is returning. The tournament will be either a round robin or a Swiss depending on entries.

The Event is free for all players, 1 night only!

Entries on the night.

How does Armageddon Blitz work?:

White gets 5 minutes for the game.  Black only gets 4 minutes.  However, Black gets draw odds; that means if the game is drawn, Black wins!

This is the same system used in the World Cup to break ties between players who remain equal after the various rapid and blitz games are played.

Time Control:

5 Minute for White, 4 Minute for Black, no increment for either player.

Start Time:

Start time will be between 6:30 and 6:45 on the night.

Earlier Event: April 25
ANZAC Day (Casual Games Only)
Later Event: May 9
Pre-Club Championships Allegro
