Games at Odds
Odds of pawn for every hundred rating points (or equivalent in pieces-3 pawns for a minor piece and 5 pawns for a rook).
This competition will promote playing between opponents of very different ratings, on a more even playing field. The maximum handicap will be the equivalent of 7 pawns. There will be two games, one where the stronger player chooses which material to give up, and the other where the weaker player makes a choice.
This should be interesting for both the weaker and stronger player. It was a close contest last year.
