2019 Sydney International Open -- 24 to 28 April 2019

If you are planning to maximise your chess in April, don't forget to enter the 2019 Sydney International Open. This resurrected event is running from the 24th to the 28th of April, at Macquarie University in Sydney. Eagle eyed readers will realise the the 25th of April is ANZAC Day in Australia, so it is possible to play 7 of the 9 rounds, even if you have to go back to work (for Sydneysiders of course).
Full details of the event are at while you can enter at this link Checking out the last set of entries, the event is very top heavy with titled players, so if you are looking to gain rating points (or upset a few GM's), no is the time to jump on board. (NB There is a late fee so enter early).

Beginner's mistake. You shouldn't have a late fee - it discourages last minute entries. You should have an early bird discount - it encourages early entries. Not the same at all!
