On Saturday 15 February 2014 the Guangzhou East Lake Chess Academy (廣州市少年宮 廣東東湖棋院) will meet us in Hong Kong for the traditional youth Chinese New Year match (report of last year).
With a team of 4 players in each age category U8, U10, U12 and U14-16 we will play 4 rounds. Players represent their cities and will not be paired against their own team members.
Starting from 2pm, in all age groups the teams will play a Round Robin: 4 games in rapid format according to FIDE rules with time control of 25 minutes per person for the whole game.
We play for the Champion Cup which goes to the team with most points and in each age category there is also a prize for the winning team and the top scorer. Everybody will also get a medal as a souvenir of the effort put in.
Snacks and drinks will be provided and we welcome our Guangzhou friends warmly. Our stellar line-up is as follows:
