Due to the low number of participating teams it has been decided that the number of rounds will be reduced to nine.
Our main sponsor, Pelaro Billeasing AB, invites all players and staff to an event on Friday (May 3rd) evening, between 19:00 and 21:00.
Pelaro is located at Göteborgsvägen 12 (a couple of hundred meters from the venue). We’ll meet up outside the Grand Hotel (the venue) main entrance at 18:45.
GM Evgenij Agrest will provide chess related entertainment, and our sponsor will provide pizza along with something to drink.
This is provided at no cost, but we would appreciate if you notify Anders Wengholm (+46 70 587 00 90, firstname.lastname@example.org) about your participation in advance.
As mentioned in the invitation the prizes are only guaranteed if we reach 70 teams.
If we do not reach 70 teams the guaranteed prizes will instead be:
1st 20,000 SEK
2nd 10,000 SEK
3rd 8,000 SEK
4th 4,000 SEK
There is one prize of 1,998 SEK to the best team:
with two female players
where both players are juniors (born 1999 or later)
where both players are veterans (born 1954 or earlier)
Teams with an average rating below 2300 will compete for rating prizes in groups of no more than 12 teams (minimum two groups). For each group there will be two prizes; 3,000 SEK and 1,998 SEK.
As we’ve got several questions about this; each rating group will include about ten teams. There are two rating prizes for each rating group.
