This is the website of FIDE International Arbiter and International Organiser Adam Raoof. A list of my events is on the right, but here are some highlights;

Brambles (Hampstead) pairings and results are here.

Our next Golders Green Weekend Tournament takes place in January 2015, and you can enter Golders Green Congress here. We have space for 100 players – and we have three sections, FIDE Under 2200 (ECF Under 200), FIDE U1900 (ECF Under 160) and an ECF graded Under 120 section. There are lots of prizes to be won!

Hampstead Congress is a regular two-day, five round Under 2200 tournament, raising money for Age Concern Camden. NEXT event: 21-22 February 2015. Please note that these events are limited to 60 players due to the size of the venue. Click here for the website of the Hampstead Congress series.

In January you can escape the Winter blues and join me in Malta for the The 2nd XYChess Malta International which takes place 9-15 January in Sliema, and you can enter Malta here. Here is a list of entrants in all sections including the Masters. THE EVENT IS ALMOST FULL. The format is 10-player all play all sections – and we have FOUR sections. The schedule is ideal for holidaying, sightseeing – and chess.

Jersey Chess Festival sponsored by Polar Capital is in two sections, an OPEN of 9 rounds, and a Holiday Tournament of 7 rounds PLUS a big Blitz tournament on the middle Wednesday: 15-20 March 2015. We have timed the event to finish in good time for you to return and play in Hampstead Congress OR the 4NCL! Click here for the website of the Polar Capital Jersey Festival 2015.

The full Chess England Rules and Regulations for Tournaments are online and it is recommended that you read them before entering any event. When you enter our events we look after you, and we try to apply fairness and common sense in any situation that arises and act in the best interest of the game. Email me at adamraoof@gmail.com if you have any questions or suggestions for ways we can improve what we do. A pdf version of our all-purpose entry form is here.
