2014 Oceania Seniors

The always energetic North Sydney Chess Club is soon hosting another important event, the 2014 Oceania Seniors Championship. This is open to all players who are 50 years or older at the end of  this year (ie If you were born in or before 1964 yo can play).
Since its establishment, this event has grown in popularity, and this year is no exception. With FIDE lowering the definition of senior to 50 years not only have the number of potential entrants increased, but they have also become stronger. Top seed for this years tournament is currently IM Gary Lane, with FM Bob Smith second seed.
The tournament runs over 4 days from the 3rd to the 6th of July (7 rounds), and entries are still open. If you are interested in playing in the event (or as a youngster, just wish to spectate) then all the details can be found at the tournament website.
