Conditions of Entry
The Organiser reserves the right to refuse an entry, or transfer an entry to another section, without explanation. Unrated players cannot win a rating prize and, with the exception of the Open, may only win 50% of any other prize. Competitors can only win one prize and prizes will be allocated as the Organiser sees fit. The advertised prizes may be changed subject to the number of entries received. In the event of a dispute, the decisions of the Organiser and/or Chief Arbiter will be final in all matters. Players must agree to their rating information being published on the ECF and FIDE websites. The submission of an entry form and payment of the entry fee denotes acceptance of the tournament’s terms and conditions.
Pairings will be made according to FIDE Pairing Rules using the Swiss Manager programme.
The Organiser, along with Darnall and Handsworth Chess Club, accept no responsibility for any damage, theft or accident to the person or property of anyone attending this event.
