  1. The entry fee is $20 for those 18 and under, $30 for those above.

    Thanks to the reader for spotting the discrepancy. The entry form has been amended.

  2. Hi John,

    Is it possible to start the chess competition earlier on 7 July 12, instead of 11am?
    As I know that some chess players are keen to compete in both the Thomson Chess and the National Junior Blitz (starts at 1800hrs on 7 Jul 12).

    thank you very much.

  3. Sorry, the times have been fixed. It will not be possible to amend it now as others who are playing the tournament may have other plans too and can't come earlier.

    It is sad that we have a major clash of dates on the 7-8 Jul weekend but I am sure that those keen on long games will join us.

  4. Hi,

    Read that the tournament is FIDE rated and G/60.
    However, a minor point, for FIDE rapid, the time controls should be less than 60min, so G/59.

  5. I have checked with SCF, they will still rate it as FIDE Rapid. G60 is a tricky category and I am sure FIDE is now looking into changing the rules to adopt it as rapid.
