British Championship - Aberystwyth 2014 - Qualifying Places


All FIDE Rated Open Sections of Congresses carry a qualifying place for the following British Championships provided there are at least 20 competitors. The place is awarded to the highest scoring player not already qualified and the player must pay his/her own entry fee.

Thus it is likely that the Open Sections of both the South Wales New Year Congress (Bridgend:– 3rd – 5th January) and South Wales Winter Congress (Newport: 24th – 26th January) will carry a qualifying place for the British Championship which is to be held at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth between 19th – 30th July 2014.
