No entries are accepted at the club

Players are eligible for only 1 prize. Rating prizes are based on ACF ratings. Unrated players are not eligible for rating restricted prizes. Players not normally resident in Australia must have a FIDE ID number to enter the Open tournament. This can be obtained from their national federation. Any player who arrives at the chessboard more than 30 minutes after the start of the session shall lose the game unless the arbiter decides otherwise.

There is no analysis at the board. 

In instances where your opponent does not arrive, the organisers will repair you with another player or allocate a bye. We cannot cater for every contingency but will attempt to be as flexible as possible. A player may only receive a total of one (1) point in byes. If a player has previously received, a full point bye (or a point by default), they shall receive no (0) points for that round.

Ratings using will be FIDE January 2022 – ACF December 2021

Entries close on Saturday 8th of January
The draw will be done on Sunday 9th of January

Late Entries are online only and are only accepted dependant on room configuration
