Further Details

ECF Ratings from January 2024 will be used. RP ratings will take precedence over LP ones unless the RP rating is provisional and the LP is not. Ratings used will be subject to the discretion of the organizers.

Ungraded players must give details of their strength, previous results, and any previous grade. Except in the open section, they may only win one half of the first or second place prize. All other prizes will be paid in full.

It is a condition of entry that the organizers' decision in any dispute is final.
