Stage 2 FICGS chess world championship

Does somebody know when stage 2 of the championship is starting? Is there something to do for the qualified players (winners of stage 1) to enroll for stage 2? Have a nice day Michael

Stage 2

Hello Michael.

Stage 2 should begin in about 2 weeks... The last decisive game is hard to end, I can't make the pairings before it finishes.

Best wishes.

Stage 2

Bonsoir, Une petite question en français je suis désolé je ne comprends pas l'anglais (enfin très peu). Les vainqueurs des groupes du stage 1 doivent t-il s'inscrire pour le tour supérieur ou bien simplement qualifié automatiquement pour le stage 2? Et quand les matchs vont-ils commencer? Je vous remercie. Amicalement Xavier.

Stage 2

Bonjour Xavier.

Les qualifications sont automatiques... Les tournois devraient commencer d'ici une semaine à trois semaines maximum (j'espère)...

Amicalement, Thibault

Stage 2 tournaments started

Hello to all.

Finally, WCH 1 stage 2 tournaments started !

I hope we'll see interesting games in the knockout semi finals :

As usual, Peter plays some risky & interesting openings :) .. Do you know a name for this one ??

A "Schliemann" variation, isn't it?! Two of the most interesting correspondence chess players I've come across on FICGS are Peter & Krol because they play very exciting lines.
