GLCC LMS Tournament

Aim: to give club members the chance to play regular, ECF-rated games.

The GLCC League Management System (LMS) Tournament is free to enter for all GLCC members who have a current ECF membership. Lapsed ECF memberships will be required to be renewed. If you'd like to enter the tournament, please email Tyrone Jefferies, tournament organiser.

Competition rules

  • Ratings limit is U-1600
  • Games will be played every Tuesday evening at St George’s starting at 18.30. Close of play will be 21.45
  • Time control will be G60+30s
  • All moves are required to be recorded throughout the game

If you happen to be selected to play for a team, you won’t be paired for that particular Tuesday. If you are unable to visit the club on Tuesday, please let Tyrone know, and he won’t pair you for that particular Tuesday. You will be automatically paired for the following week unless you are selected for a team, or you have alternative commitments.

Players without an opponent in the draw will probably be paired to play either Delroy Bennett or Tyrone Jefferies - therefore everyone is guaranteed to play a rated game. Results should be reported promptly to Tyrone. Games will be automatically rated and will be included on the next ECF ratings update the following week. Second round games will be played with colours reversed.

Martin Trophy 2021-22

The Martin Trophy is awarded for the best individual performance in inter-club matches over the season (July 2021 - June 2022). Players must play at least ten games in league, cup or friendly matches for their score to count. Statistics are calculated for everyone who has played a match for the club. Thank you to Derek Hadley for calculating the Martin Trophy standings.

Below are the final standings at 30 June 2022 for players with at least ten games played.

Congratulations to Erwin Solari, winner of the Martin Trophy 2021-22 !

Club Championship Tournaments 2021-22

All games to be completed by 30 June 2022. Rate of play: 75 minutes + 15 second increment per move, or if incrementing clocks not available, 30 moves in 75 minutes + 15 minutes quickplay finish. Starting numbers have been determined by random draw. The Trophy in each section will be awarded to the player with the highest point score.
