DIVISIONS

Pawns Division

The Pawns Division is for players who are new to Chess and are still taking their first steps. We recommend players that have a Chess Power Rating of less than 500 points. You can only enter this division if you have played in five or less Sarapu Cup's. If this is your first Chess tournament we recommend you play in the Pawns division even if you have been playing Chess for some time. Your rating can be checked on our Ratings Search page.

Knights Division

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 500 and 700 points. If you have played in more than five Sarapu Cup's you have to play in this division or higher.

Rooks Division

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. You can enter the Rooks Division on request, even if your rating is below 700 points, however be prepared for some very tough games! If you wish to enter the Rooks Division, please add your request in the Additional Comments box on the registration page.
