Spring OTB competition

• The default time control is g/60’ + 15”.
• The default can only be varied to produce a slower rate of play and by captains’ mutual agreement prior to the day of the match. Variations with increments must all use a 15 second increment (e.g. g/70’ + 15” or a maximum of g/80’ + 15”).

u1451 Rapidplay league - each player plays the other twice, once with each colour,; the time control is 30 minutes each, or the incremental equivalent (which is suggested to be g/15’ + 15”).

In the case of a defaulted board, the name of the non-defaulting player should be reported, with Default selected in place of the name of the defaulting player.

MCF Covid safe playing guidance
The guidance set out before the Autumn 2021 OTB competition remain unchanged and is available at https://www.manchesterchess.com – select More, then Downloads.
Please read these in full. In particular: players should wear facemasks covering nose and mouth at all times when indoors at the playing venue, unless they have a medical exemption (and this is allowed by the opposing team), or unless both teams have mutually agreed to play without compulsory masks.
For the avoidance of doubt, captains should agree prior to the day of the match whether masks are to be worn.
