2010 WCDF 3-Move World Qualifying Tournament
The 2010 WCDF 3-Move World Qualification Tournament will be held October 27th -
30th, 2010 (Wed-Sat) in
Radisson Hotel at Dublin Airport, Ireland. A bid has
been accepted from the Irish Draughts Association to host the 2010 Qualifying
Tournament at the “Radisson Hotel” at Dublin Airport, Dublin, Ireland, from
Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th October 2010. (The Irish Open will be held at
the same venue from Saturday 23rd Oct 2010, to Tuesday 26th Oct 2010, with the Qualifier 2010 immediately following the Irish Open.)
This Qualifying Tournament will be played over 8 rounds. There will be no
entry fee if a player is nominated by a member association of the World Checkers
& Draughts Federation. The winner will be the Official Challenger to play the
holder, Alex Moiseyev, in a World 3-Move Title Match during 2011. There may also
be Ladies & Youths sections played at the same venue. But this is dependant on
the numbers of entries.
Wednesday, 27.10.10: First Round 10 am. Second Round 3 pm.
Thursday, 28.10.10: Third Round 10 am. Fourth Round 3 pm.
Friday, 29.10.10: Fifth Round 10 am. Sixth Round 3 pm.
Saturday, 30.10.10: Seventh Round 10 am. Eighth Round 3 pm.
Single Rooms in the Radisson: €75 per person per night including breakfast.

The first ten players in the Qualifying Tournament will be given €100 each. The
overall winner will be the official challenger to play Alex Moiseyev for the
World (3 Move) Championship title in 2011. In the event of the winner declining
this opportunity, the next highest finishing player will become the challenger.
The person who plays Alex Moiseyev for the world title will receive a bonus
payment of €2,000 (approx US $2,900 at today’s exchange rate) from the I.D.A.
after the match is concluded. It is also intended to host a Women’s and Youth
event subject to entries.
[Note that Qualifying Tournaments are limited to two nominations per federation,
(in good standing with WCDF dues), per division of play. Any interested women and youth players should contact ACF Exec about
