Open and Major

The Open and Major are both FIDE Rated. You must have a FIN and be licensed to play over the board chess, or be prepared to be registered with CS if you qualify for CS membership. Please enquire if you are unsure of the registration rules before deciding to enter.

Seedings for the Open and Major B will be determined by FIDE ratings. Where a player does not have a FIDE rating their national rating will be used.

For ECF rated players the conversion that will be applied is as per the CS Chief Grading Officers recommendation. ECF *10+180 = CS, so an ECF player rated 100 will convert to 1180 CS
