From: April 14-16, 2017


Open to all FIDE rated players as well as players with no FIDE rating but have CFC or FQE ratings over 1600 as of April 1, 2017. In order to get a FIDE rating one must play a total of 9 games against FIDE rated players over a 26 month period. We intend on holding these events on a regular basis. It is our intention to make sections of 6 players composed of one or two players who do not yet have FIDE ratings without compromising the strength of the group.

Round-robin sections of 6 players with similar ratings.

No bye is permitted. Everyone must play all 5 games. Sets are supplied. Please bring your own clock.

Registration: Before April 1st: Those who have a FIDE rating - $25, those with no FIDE rating - $35. Free for Grandmasters and International Masters.

Between April 1st and April 7th - $10 more. No registrations accepted after April 7th.

Maximum of 48 players.

You must be a member of the CFC or the FQE
