The Knights Division is for players who have gained some confidence in Chess, perhaps played in a few tournaments but aren't established players yet. We recommend this division for players with a Chess Power Rating of between 400 and 550 points. If you have played in more than five Sarapu Cup's you have to play in this division or higher.
The Bishops Division is for players who have played a number of tournaments and are confident players. We recommend this division for players with a Chess Power Rating of between 550 and 700 points.
The Rooks Division is designed for established players that are highly confident and have experience. We recommend the Rooks division for players with a Chess Power Rating of 700 - 900 points.
