    sure thing! I am not entering ANY tournament that features more than one round a day, let alone the geriatrics one! Make it a round a day and I 'll be there in no time!

    I am looking into the possibility of coming to my former home of Christchurch and playing. (jak, it's not just for geriatrics! Anyone over 50 can play!)

    No they can't. Men must reach their 60th birthday in 2013. Women must reach their 50th.

    I believe that next year FIDE is bringing the age limit down to 50 for both.

    Thanks Helen. So different to last year's Asian Seniors and I am ineligible. Still young!

    It is not the Asian Seniors (which has an age limit of 55). That is being held in Jeddah, I think.
