Sunday, October 15th - Grand Finale Rapid Team Chess Match
The Worthington, Spanish Court Hotel, 12:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Come and watch as two teams battle for supremacy in a four round rapid game.
The teams will be comprised of eleven players, each led by a teenage Grandmaster on Board 1 and a Woman Grandmaster and Woman International Master on Board 2. The remaining nine boards, (Boards 3 to 11), will see our National Age Group and CARIFTA Champions, among others, in live exciting chess action.
Several of the top games will be played on DGT electronic boards that will broadcast the moves in real time to the viewing hall through multiple LED screens complemented by live video. There will be live commentary provided by GM Maurice Ashley, JCF President Ian Wilkinson and eight-time National Chess Champion of Jamaica FM Warren Elliott.
Come watch the games in real time in a special quiet room or watch in the larger spectator hall while enjoying refreshments and discussing the games with your friends. See if you can guess the next move of the Masters!
Promises to be an exciting innovation to the local chess scene.
An award ceremony will follow the match.
