    Anyone can play

    The tournament is now a catagory 2 Grand prix event.
    Of course anyone can play. It is just that you get an extra $10 discount if you are a member.

    Bill - where is this information found? I realise that different GP events have different game times (such as 60/75/90 minutes, with 60 being the minimum) but I thought the organiser could choose an appropriate forfeit time, usually based on the game times, that could be less than 60 minutes.

    The ACF decided that all GP events would have a uniform forfeit time. Since events at the start of the year were under the 23005 FIDE Laws with its forfeit time of 1 hour then this was adopted for all ACF GP events for 2009.

    For 2010 the ACF GP forfeit time will be 30 minutes.

    Thanks Bill - perhaps this 30 minute factoid could go onto the 2010 GP web site somewhere - or some way of letting all the GP organisers know about it?

    Best get there on time

    1hour, 0.5 hour whatever. In a tournament that has more than 1 round a day. It is a good policy to get there on time. Then you can find out who your opponent is and think about what you want to play

    Increase in Prize fund

    Due to the wonderful donation response from the friends of the Box Hill Chess Club we are now able to increase the total prize fund to $1500 in line with last year's prizes. So we now have these changes from the first concept:
    1st prize $500
    2nd prize $250
    3rd prize $150
    6 ratings prizes at $100.
    We now have 1hr forfeit time.
    We have class 2 grand prix rating.
    Let us hope we get many entries soon

    Entries starting to flow?

    With the entry of Sam Chow [2007 Joint winner] Entries are starting to flow . Sam being a BHCC member pays an entry fee is $30! This surely must be best value in town. Did I really set the fees as low as that? What was I thinking of. Come and join Sam and me. Enter early and often. Gerry

    World Youth Championship players to enter

    We have secured the entries from Eugene Schön and Justin Tan both of whom will be great assets to the tournament, however Bobby Cheng will be away on a family holiday in New Zealand. I hope they are proud of him over there as well

    Not just top players but promissing juniors and adults are entering.

    We have received entries over the last few days from Zachary Loh, Jorg Wallmueller among others. Who is the strong mystery player who may be going to enter. Even publicist does not know his identity.

    Why not enter during the Chess Victoria Blitz this afternoon.
