Metro Chess Club METROPOLITAN CHESS CLUB
(Established since 1959)



Club Blitz Handicap Tournament

The format of this event is similar to the Blitz Tournament except that handicaps are placed on each player as assessed on their performance in the Blitz Tournament. This event is therefore held in the week after the Blitz Tournament.

The handicaps are the differing amounts of time that each player has for all of their moves in each game they play. This time might vary between 3 minutes and say 7 minutes.

Aggregate points are awarded for performance in-group play.


2021 Club Blitz Handicap Tournament


For this year the Club Blitz Handicap was held as a 9 Round Swiss Tournament with handicap times based on the players current rating.
