    Ballarat Begonia Open 2019 March 9 - 11

    The Ballarat Begonia Open is a favourite amongst Australia's chess players. Most of Australia's GMs, many IMs and FMs and possibly OS GMs have expressed interest in competing, as well as our regular cohort of supporters. GM Ian Rogers will provide Live Commentary again as it proved so popular in previous years. Peter Tsai will be our chief arbiter and we will be utilising the great facilities at Clarendon College.

    NEW: An Under 1200 ACF Rating, 5 round tournament will run concurrently over Sunday 10th and Monday 11th only, with time controls of 60 minutes plus 30 seconds increment. There are many players, and parents of players, who will find this shorter tournament more player and family friendly while still providing the experience of a well organised, highly competitive ACF rated event, with prizes to be won. Entry fees will be half price, at $60, and only $50 for early-bird entries before the 22nd of February. Tournament numbers will be capped at 40 participants as it will be held in what was the Analysis Room (which will now be located nearby).
    Schedule will be 5 Rounds: Sunday 10:00 am, 1:30 pm, 5:00 pm, and Monday 10:00 am and 1:30 pm.
    Prizes for the U1200 will be 1st - $200, 2nd - $150 and 3rd - $100

    Go to www.begoniaopen.com to register for a spot in both the Open and the U1200.
