Chess Player raises money for children in need
Children in Need is coming and an interesting chess challenge has been accepted at Keele University.
Staffordshire chess player and ECF Arbiter Matthew Carr is performing a 24 hour chess marathon at Keele University to raise money for Children in Need. Facing him in this challenge is Fraser Greenroyd, Matthew’s best friend and fellow madman. Its a game of skill vs Endurance. Matthew has the skill and tactics to be able to take Fraser down but not the endurance to make it last at high a level for 24 hours. Fraser may not be as powerful but is more than capable of lasting foe the entire duration. Who will win and how will the games go? Lets find out.
When & Where: Keele University Library foyer, Starting at 12pm on Friday 16th November until 12pm Saturday 17th November.
Time Control: All moves in 20 minutes + 10 seconds per move.
Rules: The game shall be played according to the FIDE Rapidplay laws of chess. We will play as many games as we can using the time control in 24 hours. 1 point for a win and ½ point for a draw. Whoever has the most points at the end of 24 hours will be declared the winner.
Boards and Equipment – For this challenge we will be using a DGT live board. The games will be broadcast online for the whole 24 hours so everyone will be able to keep track of our progress and who has the most points.
All are welcome to come and watch our progress and see how well we are getting on. We will have a donation bucket by us so feel free to come and donate any money you have to our cause. If you are unable to come and see us in person then you can donate money to our cause online. The donation website is at: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->
The website with the live games on will be announced at a later date.
