    2nd CMA-FIDE Futurity

    2ND FIDE-CMA FUTURITY 2017

    From: April 14-16, 2017

    RATED FIDE/CFC/FQE

    Open to all FIDE rated players as well as players with no FIDE rating but have CFC or FQE ratings over 1600 as of April 1, 2017. In order to get a FIDE rating one must play a total of 9 games against FIDE rated players over a 26 month period. We intend on holding these events on a regular basis. It is our intention to make sections of 6 players composed of one or two players who do not yet have FIDE ratings without compromising the strength of the group.

    Round-robin sections of 6 players with similar ratings.

    No bye is permitted. Everyone must play all 5 games. Sets are supplied. Please bring your own clock.

    Registration: Before April 1st: Those who have a FIDE rating - $25, those with no FIDE rating - $35. Free for Grandmasters and International Masters.

    Between April 1st and April 7th - $10 more. No registrations accepted after April 7th.

    Maximum of 48 players.

    You must be a member of the CFC or the FQE

    Site: Chess'n Math, 3423 St Denis #400, Montreal (Sherbrooke Metro)

    Schedule: Round 1 Friday April 14 6:30pm

    Round 2, 3 - Saturday April 15: 11:00am and 4:30pm

    Round 4,5 - Sunday April 16: 11:00am and 4:30pm

    Time Control: 90 minutes plus 30 seconds per move

    Prizes: Where at least one player in the section has a rating (CFC FQE or FIDE) of 2200 or more: 1st Prize - $200, 2nd prize - $100. For the other complete sections of 6: 1st prize $100, 2nd prize $50.

    Hi Gary,

    I spoke with Francis and we are looking at doing one in Toronto on the same dates as the Montreal one. I have a meeting of my Executive Board tonight and I will try to post details tomorrow.
