The ACP Golden Classic - a new, imaginative way to interpret modern chess

The ACP, in collaboration with Science Park Amsterdam Chess, is proud to announce the "ACP Golden Classic" that will take place in Amsterdam from 14 to 22 July, in the same venue and at the same time as the Dutch Championships and the SPA Open.


The ACP Golden Classic tournament reveals the long forgotten adjournment back into practice. The rate of play is: each player will get 2,5 hours for the first 40 moves, f.b. 1 hour for the next 16 moves, f.b. 15 minutes to finish the game with an increment of 30 seconds per move in the last period.
