This year the Open Section of the National Open will be a 9-round Swiss with FIDE norms possible and discounts for titled players. All under sections remain at 7-rounds, a popular change we made last year.
Extra discounts are also available for returning players who enter before the end of January. We call this the Early Bird Loyalty Discount. In addition, All players will be automatically entered into a drawing with great prizes and more chances to win the earlier you enter.
We are also repeating the free hotel room lottery with the same rules as last year.
