    Default 2017 CYCC & Canadian Open - ssmchess.ca

    Registration for the 2017 CYCC and Canadian Open in Sault Ste. Marie, ON is now open. In addition, discounted residence room packages are available for those looking to stay for the duration of both events (double rooms / pods of 5 single rooms / pods of 8 single rooms).

    Invitations for titled players will be going out shortly. If you are a Canadian GM / IM / WGM and do not receive an email this month, it means I do not have your email address. Based on the number of inquiries already received from foreign titled players, we will have no difficulty in surpassing tournament requirements for the achievement of norms.

    Canadian Open $50000 Prize Fund (based on 300 paid entries); $40000 Prize Fund guaranteed. Prize fund breakdown coming soon.

    www.ssmchess.ca - Now also available in French.

    I like the idea that there is a six day option with a merger after 6 rounds

    A couple of updates:

    Canadian Open invitations have been sent out to Canadian titled players for whom I have contact information. If you are an IM/GM/WGM and did not receive an invitation and are considering playing, please contact us through the email listed on the event website. As well, the prize fund distribution has been posted (including class prizes every 100 points).

    Rooms onsite at the Sault College residence are about 1/4 sold out.

    The first preregistered list for the top section will appear in April.

    The event website (www.ssmchess.ca) has been updated with additional details including information about byes.

    It appeared to me that the booking options are offered for players who shall be playing in both CYCC and CO only. Is it possible to make it flexible for players who can only play for 6 days or 9 days schedules at the CO? https://ssmchess.eventsmart.com/even...-2017-cycc-co/

    On-site room booking packages for the CYCC and Canadian Open (separately) will be available on the website beginning tomorrow. We wanted to give an initial opportunity to reserve on-site rooms to those who were staying for both events, and had planned on opening up the on-site residence rooms to those looking to book for one event only beginning April 1st.

    The following new packages will be available for both single and double rooms on-site:

    A CYCC only package (nights of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, check out on the morning of the 10th).

    Canadian Open packages for both the 6-day schedule (check in on the 10th) and 9-day schedule (check in on the 7th).

    Hi Andrew, what is the cancellation policy on these room packages? Non-refundable?

    The qualified players list for the CYCC was updated today for several qualifiers this week.
    We have the list sorted by name and by tournament.
    I encourage all qualifier organizers to review the list (sorted by tournament) to ensure accuracy and completeness.
    Kids can review the list sorted by name. If you think your name is missing, please advise the TD and/or CFC office.

    The lists can be found on the CFC home page (near the centre).

    Check the list of remaining CYCC qualifiers on the tournaments listing.

    The lists are a bit awkward to browse through - some have no titles at all, so you don't know what group they belong to. U2200 seems to be on two images. Can you put them in alphabetical and/or rating order? Put a large title at the top of each image. Rather than an album of photos, make a separate post for each group/section with the respective photo attached. You can edit/replace each post as entries are updated.

    Agree. What is a problem to create it as a text and post on the website? What will be a pairing software used at the tournament? Really consider SwissManager - one click and data are online

    The World Open top section has only that one option in order to satsfy FIDE requirements. Unlike the other sections there are no other multi-day options nor re-entry possibilities. So the Canadian Open top section could be 9 day or 6 day but not a mixture of both.

    As Hugh indicated, the top section of the world open does not have multiple schedule options. The problem isn't 2 games per day, it's merging schedules which violates the FIDE norm rule about pairings potentially being advantageous to one player (or group of players) over others.

    We had to choose between a 9 day or 6 day (only) for the master section, and we went with both Canadian Open tradition and the preference of many strong players to play a one round a day event.

    Okay, thanks Andrew and Hugh for the quick response. It looks like a great tournament, and I always hated the one section Canadian Open. Sadly, I don't think I have time to play, but good luck.
