e2e4 Chess runs what are widely regarded as the best chess tournaments in the UK.  In keeping with this we have introduced a Grand Prix which will run from 1st January 2011 - 30th June 2011.

Points scored in e2e4 events will count towards the e2e4 Grand Prix which contains two sections:-

British Championship

Open to players not holding a GM, IM or FM title.  Points scored in any International Masters or Weekend Open will count for e2e4BC points (multiplied by any advertised Grand Prix multiplier).  The winner of the e2e4 British Championship Grand Prix will be the player will most e2e4BC points.  The winner will qualify for the 2011 British Championship in Sheffield AND will have their entry fee (worth £200) paid on their behalf.  A truly great prize.
