Need your lichess userid included in your email and your actual name - will do pairings according to UCU classic ratings.

Please note Games will not be UCU rated.

I will email a draw to the players at 7:00pm and the player with White play will challenge their opponent to a game with time limit of 1hr 30mins each.

At the end of the games - both players to email me the results. : mark.chris.newman@googlemail.com
