DATCC is looking to organize a small 7 rounds FIDE rated (round robin or Swiss - depending on the number of participants) to include both adults and children with or without FIDE rating to participate in this event. Of course, more FIDE rated players are required to provide the necessary pool for a better chance to get/increase the rating.
Tentatively, the entry fees is set at RM100 per person to pay for rental of venue, arbiter fees and FIDE fees and the schedule for the event is planned as follows:
Time control is set at 90 minutes plus 30 seconds increment per move per player.
As 4th, 5th and 6th are working/schooling days, the organizer understand the challenges that will be faced in getting the event off the ground but, in terms of exposure and experience, it will be a good platform for us to see how we fare against players from other countries especially for the juniors - where do we stand with regards to our preparation and understanding.
To ensure due preparation, there is need to confirm the number of participants at least 4 weeks before the event starts to see if it is possible to get it going.
