Registration Now Open for 2019 Events

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.

  1. Is there information about the Thursday Action Quads side event? I can’t seem to find anything about the schedule or format? Thanks

  2. Hi , Alan ,
    Happy New Year , I have a question for you , so the early bird returning player discount only for registration open session or can be used on Youth events as well ? Thank you

    • Hello Pam,

      The Early Bird Discount only applies to the National Open, which has a higher entry fee. Players who previously played in the Youth event but are moving up to the National Open are also eligible.

      We will be announcing a drawing for a special prize for players who enter the International Youth Championship and the National Open. The earlier you enter the more chances you have to win.

    • Our events are open to players all over the world.

      Your son may participate in the International Youth Championship, the National Open and a number of side events. We convert FIDE or Russian Federation ratings to the equivalent US Chess rating for eligibility and pairing purposes. A 1250 FIDE rating converts to 1516.

  3. The rating is base on the registration date or on game date? My son 810 and 8 years old, which section should he sign up for? What about his number changed in the next few months?
