Pre-Doeberl Blitz

As an added attraction to this years O2C Doeberl Cup, the ANU Chess Club is holding its traditional Pre-Doeberl Blitz. While in previous years it has been held at the club itself, for 2016 we are moving it to the venue, making it easier for interstate players to take part. So if you get into Canberra on Wednesday afternoon (before 7) feel free to come to University House to play. The details are:

ANU Chess Club Pre-Doeberl Blitz

  • Wednesday 23rd March 2016 
  • 7pm for a 7:15pm start
  • University House, 1 Balmain Cres, Action
  • 9 round swiss
  • G/5m
  • Free entry

While the event has no cash prizes, there is one prize that you can win. The highest finishing players for each of the 4 Doeberl Cup sections get to choose their round 1 colours for the main tournaments (ie The highest scoring player who is playing in the Major can choose the colour they get for round 1, and that then determines the colour for board 1, 2 etc)
