NOVEMBER & DECEMBER TOURNAMENTS

School's out pretty soon, so it's time to revisit the tournaments that will be in place for November and December. There's 25minute rapid chess and longer time controls of 2 hrs per game or more, plenty to choose from.

I am broadcasting mainly those tournaments which are not organised by the SCF. For SCF tournaments, please goto  the SCF  for all the Upcoming Events.

TOA PAYOH WEST CC  NOVEMBER 20

Round 1 starts 930am. There are 3 sections, A1 Junior Under 13 yrs, A2 Junior Under 10yrs, and Open (no age limit). Cash prizes and trophies awarded for Sections A1 and Open, trophies only for A2.  Lunch will be provided for Junior Sections A1 and A2 only. The entry form can be downloaded here 

CAIRNHILL CHESS FESTIVAL 2011 DECEMBER 3-4

There are again 3 Sections, Open (No age limit), Major (16 yrs and under) and Minor ( 12 yrs and under). The Open and Major Sections are played in 45 minutes per side, thus over 2 days while the Minor is a one-day tournament played with 20 minutes per side. There is also a Blitz Tournament (5mins per side) on Dec 4 Sunday.

More details on the entry form downloadable here.

Inclusive of the SCF events, there should be a total of 4 local events and 2 overseas ( the Asian Amateur and Penang Open) which should fufil any chessplayers hunger for this period.

Please note that the local tournaments listed are NOT organised by SCF, hence they are NOT SCF rated and zero start does not apply.
