    Brian, do you know if this tournament will clash with the Australian Junior Championships? What direct titles will be on offer via. the Oceania Youth Championship?
    Do you find it hard to get better at chess? Unsure which resources to use?

    As a Grandmaster, FIDE Trainer, 2018 Australian Champion, 2017 Australian Open Champion and published author, I know how to succeed in chess. I've used my 'Illingworth Method of Chess Learning' to help hundreds of players achieve their chess goals and sustain a large improvement in their skill and results.

    Take the struggle out of chess improvement, for just $8 a month.

    If I want to find out about tournaments in New Zealand, I always look at the very helpful NZCF calendar http://www.newzealandchess.co.nz/calendar.html . Details for the Oceania Youth Championships are there.

    Not as cheap as they used to be - must achieve a minimum rating these days (2200 for IM).

    The minimum rating is a lifetime requirement for a player who qualifies for a direct title. So if someone has been, is, or later becomes rated above the minimum rating then they get the title. It means that for the player who hasn't already reached the direct title rating minimum, the direct title is like getting all your norms at once and also cutting the required rating minimum by 200 points.

    The published dates are the 5th to 13th January. My guess is that will definitely clash with the Australian Open, and it MAY overlap with the Australian Juniors. Given that no details have been confirmed on either there is no way to know at this stage.

    In a year when Australian Open finishes on a Saturday (January 2-12 likely in 2019), the Australian Junior would normally start on the 19th.
