  • 2023 Aurora Spring Open - March 25-26

    I probably could dig out the old ad from 2020 Spring Open and used it :) Not much changed since then. That one got cancelled and we went dormant or online.

    It will be the 18th edition of our opens.


    All details at the tournament website at http://www.aucc.club/2023-aurora-spr...event-details/ with possibility to register

    Location: Newmarket Old Town Hall (Ontario)

    Dates: March 25-26, 2023

    Sections: Master, U2100, U1700, and U1300

    Five rounds with 90 min +30 sec inc time control

    Fees: $90. Play-up fee +$20


    Prizes


    Monetary prizes in Master, U2100, U1700, and U1300 sections. First prize in Master Section – minimum 1200 CAD based on 120 players in the main event. For unrated players max prize is 100 CAD.



    The prize monies depends on a number of players in total and in sections. Thus, we can not provide exact amounts for particular sections. However, you might guess comparing the previous events like in 2019 Fall Open
    2019 Fall Open prizes (for estimates)
    Place Master U2100 U1700 U1300
    1st $1200 $600 $600 $500
    2nd $600 $450 $450 $350
    3rd $350 $300 $350 $250

    We're planing some side events for those who might be interested in one-day participation. Stay tuned.

            Hi Egis:

            I have submitted my registration.

            I have checked the club website, but I can't find a link to the list of registered players so far?

                Thanks John. I just mailed in my registration on Monday, so it has not yet been processed......that's why I'm not on the list.

                  Before it was just "Players", now I added "Registered..."
                  And as John writes the direct link is http://www.aucc.club/2023-aurora-spr...g-open-players

                        Additional to the main tournament the two sides events are planned - rapids for Juniors on Saturday, and everyone on Sunday. It is an offer to those who can not commit both days or due some other reasons can not play in the main tournament.
                        Though these will go only with ~16 players for Saturday; and 20 for Sunday. Please register in advance.

                        Bernie visited the main hall - there will be some major or maybe minor change - wall were repainted with a different color :) No pics yet.

                        At this moment 57+2 players on the list.

                        Details on the first post or http://www.aucc.club/2023-aurora-spring-open/

                              Two great players from far far away are coming to town:

                              IM Shawn Rodrigue-Lemieux (CFC 2556)
                              IM Olivier Kenta Chiku-Ratte (CFC 2413)

                              At this moment 79+6+5 = 90 players.
