Grand prix Guidelines
Entry is automatic to any player
registered for a team in the Bristol and District Chess League upon
entry to any tournament stating that it is part of the Bristol Chess
Grand Prix. This also extends to members of clubs where a club may have
to withdraw during the season.
There is no entry fee, the
contribution to the prize fund is paid for by the tournaments
The Grand Prix season runs from
May 1st to April 30th to allow prizes to be given
out at the League AGM.
The August grading list shall be
used for the purposes of sorting players into grading bands. With the
ECF moving towards publication of gradings twice yearly, the mid season
grading list will be used only to assign gradings to players who are
currently ungraded. As a result, the grades listed on the Grand Prix
are unlikely to correspond with the mid-season grading list – please do
not contact me to point out that the grades are incorrect following the
mid-season grading lists are issued!!
Each player scores for every event they take part in. The formula for
calculating the score is: Total score for event multiplied by event
multiplier. There are no limits on how many events get counted towards
a player’s score.
There will be a cash prize for the top three players in each grading
section. In addition, a team prize will be awarded based upon the
scores of the highest five scores made by a player from any club. A
team shall remain eligible for the team prize even if they resign from
the League, providing the club still operates as a chess club. The best
junior (across all sections) will also be awarded the Junior trophy.
The total value of the prizes is
dependent upon the number of tournaments participating in the Grand
Prix. Prizes will be equal across all graded sections. Should funds
permit, extra prizes may be awarded at the discresion of the Grand Prix
In the event of a tie, then the
person who has entered the greater number of events shall be placed in
the higher position. Should this still result in a tie then the prizes
will be shared equally (for example if 1st and 2nd
is a tie then the prize fund will be the combined total of the two
amounts divided between the two players).
Tables are updated after each
event; it is the responsibility of the players to check to see if they
believe there are any errors and to notify the Grand Prix Secretary.
Any issues must be raised before April 30th to allow the
prize funds to be allocated and prepared for the League AGM.
Any unclaimed prizes (6 months after cheque date issue/AGM) will be
returned to the prize pool for the following year
Please check these
results and feel free to contact me if you think there are any errors.
Also contact me if
there are any clubs planning events that they want them included.
