On our homeground, we in ASSU are aiming for one 8 rounds tournament this season, coming. it will be of great fun, that everyone plays anyone in the club, good training, expected set ups and set backs and fun games! It is time, for everyone in our club to join in and face a good fun tournament. We invite anyone to join us in 2016. There will be probably be 3 rounds of speed chess 10+10 or 15+3 (first evening, after the board of ASSU has decided, we want to ask members of format as well!) and and 5 ELO standard long games, every second or third week. Swedish Chess Federation is changing to ELO and LASK will dissapear. Therefore this is a very good oppertunity to play and to get your ELO.
