e2e4 London Gatwick International
26th - 30th October 2016
GM & IM norm : Offers players the opportunity to play for GM and IM norm in two 10 play all play all sections. Players rated over 2050 can play the IM norm section, as can those who have qualified via the Challengers.
Unforunately, two GMs did not get UK visas and two other players withdrew. We have replaced all of these players but it is no longer possible to run two all play all sections with all players having norm chances. We have therefore taken the decision to combine the two sections into a 20 player swiss (still with 6 GMs) to ensure that everyone retains their norm chances. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
