It is great that this event is FIDE rated, but can a tournament be FIDE rated if it is only 6 rounds?

Is it too late to register this as a Grand Prix tournament?

Hi Kai,

There are tournaments in Europe that are 5 rounds and are FIDE rated. So the answer is YES you have a 6 round FIDE tournament.

Correction:

This tournament will not be FIDE rated. It hasn't been registered with FIDE and the MCC apologise for any misunderstanding that our advertising has created.

But can this tournament still be registered for the Yugilbar Grand Prix?
