Rules for night blitz chess tournaments

Dates
Available at the schedule you will find in this web. The celebration of these tournaments is subject to a minimum number of 50 players.

Hours
Games will start at 11 pm.

Pace of play:
3 minutes + 2 seconds per play.

Groups of play:
A unique competition group will be established, but with two separate classifications:
  • General ranking.
  • Group B: players with FIDE’s ELO points below 2000, and who have not surpassed 2100 FIDE’s ELO points in the last 5 years. Blitz FIDE’s ELO points will be taken into account; if the player does not have a blitz FIDE’s ELO ranking, he will be assigned his FIDE’s ELO points for slow pace games.
All players must have a valid FIDE license, as the tournament will be evaluated for blitz FIDE ‘s ELO.

Enrollment:
Registration fees for each of the night blitz chess tournaments must be paid no later than at 16:30 h. of the tournament’s celebration day.

Both the game room and the registration listings will be published at 9 am of the celebration day of each of the blitz chess tournaments, both at the front desk area and in the Vento bar-restaurant. Players should advice the Organization if they find any errors in these listings until 6 pm of the same day of each of these events.
