The list of current entries is below. If you want to enter, just get in touch or post here.
A reminder that the round dates are 29th June, 13th and 27th July, and 10th and 24th August, starting at 7:30 on each day, with 105 minutes for all moves. Byes are available on request, and we can sometimes reschedule rounds if it suits both players – we’ll look at that once while making the draw for any given round. We’ve added a third grading band this year – so there’s grading prizes for 1501-1700, 1201-1500 and under 1200, along with the David and Goliath prize.
In our last two tournaments, we’ve set football-related criteria for deciding if the top seed will have white, and both times, they’ve come to pass. So, hoping to continue our good luck, the top seed will have white if Ireland can get through our Euro 2016 group and into the last 16.
The current list of entries is –
