Sondex Cup 2013

This weekend I will play in Sondex Cup 2013.
It is a tournament in Kolding in Denmark, organised by local chess club Springaren (The Knight).
Kolding is manly known for it´s handball club, but this time chess will be in the centre of an attention.
I will play five rounds, from which, one is tomorrow, and on Saturday and Sunday we have two rounds.
It is a very unusual system, so 114 players will be divided in groups with six players in each group according to rating, and then the players will play round robin in every group.
Interesting enough!

I am rated number 7, which means that I will be the best rated player in the second group.
The differences in Elo are very small, and for example I am only 24 points from the third rated player.
On the other side, player which is rated eleventh is not so much behind me.

On the following link you can find the groups: Sondex Cup 2013 .

The first two groups are called IM groups and the result service is available here: Results .
I will have respectable 2349 in average in my group.

It is possible to watch the games live on the Internet.
Here is the link: Games Live .

All other information about this tournament (and other information about the club) with a picture gallery can be found on the home page of the local club Chess Club Springaren .
