2nd The Summit Juniors Open: Update#4 (Registration Closed)

At 4pm today, the Organiser of the tournament had decided to close all pre-registration channels into the event ahead of schedule by 1 week when the total number of registered names have reached 207 pax.  

On behalf of the Organiser, I would like to say a big Thank You to all parents and chess academies for the support given to this event. For those who have pre-registered yourselves but yet to make payment, please do so by 21st June (Friday). The Organiser WILL NOT accept entry fee on tournament day for such big-scale event (in term of participation numbers).

If you have missed the boat, you may consider enrolling yourself into the next two National rated-events i.e. MBSS Open on 6th July and 14th CAS Second Quarter Allegro on 7th July.

For those who are new to Rating Category concept, CAS Category 2 is meant for players with National Rating less than 1400 equivalent to a National U-8 Championship or National U-10 Championship without the strongest 4 national players. So, if you are aged 10 and below, this is THE Category to join in order to experience glimpse of how National Championship is like. Of course, you can also join if you are above 10 y.o. as long as your NR is less than 1400. There is 19 cash prizes awaiting 19 different players.

While, for those players who possess NR of at least 1400 especially children 12 y.o. and below will compete in Category 1 where you are able to accumulate more playing experience at higher level by meeting with some strong National Players. Also, participating in this category will allow you to obtain invaluable insight on how players better than you play their games. This experience is very important so that you can continue to dominate your Age-Group comes next year National Championships. Of course, you can also join if you are above 12 y.o. as long as your NR is NOT LESS than 1400. Just like Category 2, there is 19 cash prizes awaiting 19 different players in this Category 1.
