The next Hampstead weekend Congress is on 20-21 December.  We are quickly filling up, so get your entry in SOON!

At a nearby venue, Heathside School in Heath Street (not very far away from the tube - did you know that Hampstead Underground used to be called Heath Street?), I am running an International 2200+ tournament from 15-23 December. 

At that venue we have decided to host an extra Under 2200 event during the week of Monday 15 - Friday 19 December - the games are from 11am to 2pm daily, there are five rounds and the time control is the usual all in 60 minutes plus 30 seconds a move. Interested?
