ICCF Interzonal Tournament 2010

Here is a message from Iain Smuts – T.O. ICCF Zone4 Paarl – South Africa, (delete nospam)

"Every two years our ICCF zone hosts the “Interzonal” team tournament. Each of the four ICCF zones enters a team of eight players.

The tournament was started by Med Samraoui as a way for the strong players from Africa and Asia to compete for international title norms (IM; SIM; GM).

Kindly communicate this announcement to all members of your national federation as soon as possible. Entry is free.

In order to be able to secure as many norm opportunities as possible, we need to field a strong team. Therefore please limit the team nominations from your federation to those players with ICCF ratings above 2200.

Team selection and board order will be done strictly according to current ICCF rating and will comprise the strongest eight nominations received up to midnight, 30 November 2010."

I did play in the last two Interzonals, but will not be playing this time since I have recently joined the Andrej Šuštaršic Memorial.
