Announcement of the 2nd Interzonal Individual Tournament
Dear Correspondence Chess Friends
With the restructuring of zones as well as a few other unforeseen bureaucratic activities, now something of the past, we are ready to proceed with the second ICCF Interzonal Individual Tournament.
The details are as follows:
The purpose of this event is to develop the spirit of amici sumus among players worldwide (in all four ICCF Zones) and to provide opportunities to qualify for title norms.
Participants must have a fixed ICCF rating of between 2200 and 2375.
This event will start with a preliminary stage consisting of groups of 9 players each in categories 1 - 3.
The top three finishers of each group will qualify for the semi final stage in at least category 4.
To achieve this category some higher rated players will be invited to participate in the semi-finals.
The semi final will produce players for the final which will be at least a category 7.
Again some higher rated players will be invited to participate to achieve this category in the final.
This tournament is played on a two yearly basis.
The closing date for entries is 1 June 2016 and the tournament will start on 15 June 2016.
