PRIZES

1st £100, 2nd £50 in each section GUARANTEED.


There is also a £30.00 rating / grading prize in each section. Please note that we are now using FIDE rapidplay ratings in the Open, Major and Minor to determine seedings for pairings and for rating prize bands. This is because the vast majority of entrants now have a FIDE rating. In the Under 120 Amateur we will, for the present, continue to use ECF rapidplay grades to determine seedings for pairings and for grading prizes. We will continue to use ECF rapid grades to determine eligibility for sections, but this may change - your feedback would be appreciated.


Ungraded players may normally only win 50% of a cash prize, except in the Open section.


ALL entrants can save money if they are members (Silver or above) of the English Chess Federation. Ring 01424 775222 to join or visit http://www.englishchess.org.uk/

FURTHER DETAILS

We reserve the right to refuse entry or to transfer players between sections. In the event of a dispute, the organisers decision is final. Travel advice, round times, full rules and conditions of entry can be found at our website.
