  • The tournament will run from June 11th through September 3rd.

  • You get one point for a win, one half point for a draw, and zero for a loss.
  • You may play as many or as few games as you like, but no more than two in one night. The more you play the more points you can win.
  • All games are to be played at the Kenilworth Chess Club during normal operating hours.
  • The winner is the person who has the most points at the end of the tournament.
  • The prizes are 60% for first place, 30% for second, and 10% for third.
Among those expected to play in the event are : NM Mark Kernighan (who won in 2005), Greg Tomkovich (the 2006 victor), Ian Mangion (last year's undefeated runner-up) & yours truly (the defending champ).

As usual, Greg will direct.

Thanks Ed. Since I haven't been playing well & plan some experiments, I'll really need it.
