World Rapid and Blitz Championship Information
25 August 2015
FIDE and AGON finally announce the World Rapid and Blitz Championship in Berlin. I am happy to see that ACP efforts did not go in vain, as the high prize-fund was preserved and my insistent recommendation to provide the full board accommodation for all the players with 2700+ Elo (and 2760+ in rapid and blitz) was approved. That will help a couple of dozen of ACP members (and a dozen of non-members, who'd better ask themselves why they haven't joined us yet!). Having numerous discussions with the organizers, I expect it to be an exceptional event, and advice you not to delay your registration, as the playing venue although beautiful, might not be able to sit all those who'd like to take part.
