Player needed for GM norm tournament

Post by LawrenceCooper » Thu Sep 06, 2018 2:09 pm

There is a GM Norm tournament starting on Tuesday of next week (11 September). Unfortunately there has been a late withdrawal and I have been asked if I know of anyone who might be interested and able to step in at very short notice.

The only requirement is that the player must have a rating of at least 2280. There is no need to be titled, although titled players are also welcome. Entry fee (normally up to 500 euros) is waived and free accommodation is also on offer. The player would need to cover the cost of getting to Crete and meals.

If you have any ideas/know of any potentially interested players, please ask them to contact me urgently, either by e mail or text to 07864039269. It's a great opportunity at relatively low cost for any GM/IM norm seekers who happen to be available, or indeed anyone who wants to play in a closed tournament and has the necessary rating.

Many thanks

It looks like I missed a registration by Paul on this one apologies for that his account is active now.

I’ve informed all IRL players. Is it a 9-day?
