Club Lightning Handicap Tournament

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


2018 Club Lightning Handicap Tournament




For this year the Club Lightning was held as a Round Robin Tournament (11 rounds).
