Since FIDE has partnered with ChessKid and after a very successful first event, they are hosting their second Intercontinental ChessKid FIDE Challenge on June 19, and we would like to remind you that it is open to children from anywhere in the world. We would appreciate it if you could share this information with your regional associations, clubs, et cetera.
To join the tournaments, register here:
The Eastern Hemisphere edition (beginning at 9 am UK)
The Western Hemisphere edition (beginning at 9 am Pacific U.S.)
Each of the two editions will be played in two sections: Ages 9-12 and 8 & Under. Ages are as of January 1, 2021.
The time control will be 10+2 (10 minutes starting time plus 2 seconds added per move) and each of the two editions will be 7 rounds. The expected length for each tournament is three hours.
The event will take place entirely on the ChessKid live server with fantastic prizes. The prizes for the winners include group lessons localized to winning kids’ language and time zone. For the last event, GM Humpy Koneru and GM Vishy Anand taught in English, GM Irina Krush taught in Russian, GM Jorge Cori taught in Spanish, GM Stelios Halkias taught in Greek, and IM Hongjin Ahn taught in Korean.
