2022 GTCL Team Rapid Championship

The GTCL Cup is another time-honoured event in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) chess community.

Michael Barron with the GTCL Cup

This year, up to 25 teams of 4-5 players, representing GTA chess clubs, will be competing to win the GTCL Cup at Annex Chess Club, on Monday, December 5 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM. This will be a 5-round, Team Swiss event with a 15′ + 5″ increment time control.

Teams will be either designated as Championship (no rating limits and above 1800 average CFC Classical rating) or Reserve (U1800 average CFC Classical rating). Each GTA chess club may field multiple teams of either type.

Note: GTCL has asked ACC to consider the potential impact on average team ratings for registered teams, if CFC Quick ratings are used instead of CFC Classical ratings. Accordingly, we will make such a comparison and disclose the difference.

Our online registration site for this event is now running and teams and individual players (not on a team) may now register and pay the related fees, as follows:

  • $40 per 4 or 5-player team ($20 if all 4 or 5 members are ACC members).
  • $10 per individual player not on a team ($5 for ACC members not on a team; Placeholder teams are reserved for individual players not registered as a team member.

Our Registration site provides more details on how the Event will be run and how registration works.

A list of registered teams and individual players is available here.

Our latest Event Flyer is available here.

It should be another fun time in the Great Hall and we look forward to seeing you there!
