Rock Cup Round 1 Draw
A great entry this year, 22 contestants, so 11 pairings in the first round.
The draw is below, as usual this round has been seeded so the top half of the draw will play the bottom half.
In the above draw the first named player in each pairing is at home and has black. He is also responsible for contacting his opponent within a week to arrange a date/venue for the game, failing which the away player can claim the game. When agreeing a date be sure to leave time for a replay in the event of a draw.
Remember the new time controls rules (below) apply this season.There are no adjournments or adjudications.
