Leonid's News

We are please to inform you that chess online continues from strength to strength.

Many existing events of different standards are played online. About a month ago the International Chess Federation (FIDE) announced the Online Olympiad. This massive tournament is being held on the www.chess.com platform.

The Australian Team comprises 12 players with myself as captain.
The first matches will be held on August 12th.

Unfortunately because of the Covid-19 situation, face-to-face tournaments are not possible for the time being (I'm sure we will be back in the not too distant future!).

So for Term 3, we will be running our CV official zonal tournaments online!

These events will give our schools an opportunity to qualify for the Victorian State Finals in Term 4. Please see the dates and details on the tournaments page.

Update: The first results are up, please read the online fair play policy and troubleshooting guide.

Stay safe,

Leonid Sandler - International Master, Director Chess Australia Pty Ltd
