    A reminder that this year's tournament coincides with the first weekend of school holidays - a bonus for juniors.
    Also the chess olympiad starts in Georgia, which means some top players are unavailable - the eventual winner(s) is hard to pick!

    I believe the new ratings come out at the end of September, as opposed to August...?

    Hi Tony,

    I am not playing this year. It is getting close to when I move to a retirement village. Best wishes for a ripper tournament.
