7th New York International Chess Tournament
Wednesday, 30 April 2014 13:18
The Seventh New York International Chess Tournament will take place from June 18-22, 2014 and we would like to extend an invitation to members of your Federation to participate.
Since its premiere in 2008, the event has grown every year in size and strength and is an excellent opportunity for both established Grandmasters (the $12,500 prize fund in the Championship section is unconditionally guaranteed) and younger players who seek to obtain IM and GM norms. Last year, players from 19 different federations, including 27 Grandmasters and International Masters, took part, ensuring norm possibilities independent of pairings with foreign players. Two GM norm and three IM norms were awarded!
We again expect FIDE titled players from all over the world to compete, ensuring that the 7th NY International will be again a “Super Swiss”, one of only a handful held in the U.S. each year.
The New York International is organized by the historic Marshall Chess Club and will take place at a luxurious private club in Midtown Manhattan under impeccable playing conditions.
