    IM / GM norms tournaments in Canada and USA

    Hi All,

    As far as I know , the followings are the tournaments where norms may be available in Canada and USA ( 9 rounds )

    1. Philadelphia Open ( USA ) - end March

    2. Chicago Open ( USA ) - end May

    3. Philadelphia International ( USA ) - end June

    4. World Open ( USA ) - early July

    5. Canadian Open ( Canada ) - after CYCC which is normally 2nd week of July

    6. Washington International ( USA ) - mid August

    7. North American Open ( USA ) - end December

    Edmonton International by Invitational ? Is this every year ?

    Are there any other norms tournament available in Canada and USA ? Is CFC going to organize any norm tournaments in the near future or is there any available funds from FIDE for organizers to run norm tournaments ?

    Please share information on the above if you have any which is not listed.

    Thanks

    The Quebec Open is usually a 9 round FIDE rated event.

    Yes. I heard about that. Are they going to revert back to 9 rounds in the near future ?
