QldRatingsFIDE file on front page – Top 50 Juniors updated

The rest will be updated over the next couple of days.

There are now 500 FIDE rated players in Qld – that I know of.

Where do most of them play – Online, of course.

There is a “rusted-on”, “last-stand” group of 30-40 adults who still play OTB weekend chess in Qld.

Similar numbers in other states.

All the other FIDE rated players have gone over to online chess – and they are not coming back!

Time to try something new. Time to cut bait and move into the 21st century with a Teams based format.

The monster swiss is deader than Elvis. “Thank you very much”.
