It's great to see so many strong players from New Zealand selected to play in the Olympiad. If any of the selected players are looking for an event to play in the lead up and wish to participate in the 2020 Gold Coast Open, please get in touch scurtis@gardinerchess.com.au

The 2020 Olympiad has been postponed till 2021. I hope the players selected this year will still be given option to keep their places for next year. It would mean that the players now have greater time to prepare.
