Hey guys, just thought I'd start a thread about the Aus Young Masters tournaments that Fedja Zulfic is organising for Dec 7-11 this year. Should be a great tournament, I've personally not seen the entry list yet but I'll be there and covering it for Chess Crazy Talk as well as playing! Looking forward to it :D

A few corrections regarding the Blitz Tournament on the on Tuesday 6th December.

This will be 9 rounds [to allow the juniors to get some rest before the Masters :rolleyes: :lol: ] of 3 minutes + 2 seconds a move increment from move 1 [no democracy here]. Entry fee $12 if entered before the day, late entry $15.

The Blitz is open to all players, Juniors, Adults and even Arbiters ;) . A great chance to check out the venue and meet your fellow competitors in the Junior Masters tournaments, local players and the officials, face to face, in a friendly competitive environment.

Entry forms are already available, pdf attached.
