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;

If you like playing in Hampstead then we have an extra event at Christmas – The Brambles Administration International takes place 15-23 December at Heathside School in Heath Street NW3, and you can enter Brambles here. Here is a list of entrants in both sections including the U2200. At the moment we have space for just 30 players in each section – and we have two sections, FIDE Under 2200 (ECF Under 200) in the morning and an 2200+ Masters event in the afternoon. There are £3,500 in GUARANTEED prizes to be won! Thanks to The Friends of Chess for their additional support. If you are a norm-seeker and Under 21 you may be eligible for financial support.

Hampstead Congress is a regular two-day, five round Under 2200 tournament, raising money for Age Concern Camden. Please note that these events are strictly limited to 50 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.
