    The Champs has a top division with closed entry determined by a list of requirements (tends to be about 30-40 players). Others play in the Major (Reserves). The Open is a single division tournament where any player can mix in with the GMs.

    I only know what was in the bid document, and information from bid documents can change before the final details are released. The host club is at http://www.northsydneychess.org/ and their email address is northsydneychess@gmail.com
