We don't have a traditional prize giving ceremony at this tournament (except for the Under 80).  If you win a prize send me your bank details and a nice photo of you playing chess for the web page and check out my virtual prize giving ceremony on my Twitch stream.

Our next FIDE rated rapid event here at St Luke's Church is on Saturday 15th September!



Take a look at my Twitch stream at twitch.tv/adamraoof for some games from events that I am involved with! If you don't catch the live stream I will save it and you can watch it later on Twitch or (if I can work out how to do this) on my YouTube channel.

Golders Green FIDE Chess

You're probably here because a) you play chess and you're looking to take part in over the board competitions and b) you read that I run (with lots of help from friendly volunteers) the monthly Golders Green Rapidplays in Leonard Barden's excellent Evening Standard column, or on the ECF (English Chess Federation) tournament calendarWell, you found the right website! 

You have one of the best chess websites I have seen. It is very friendly and clever. As the chess administrator for the family, I am seriously impressed by the on-line bookingA Chess Parent
