Unrated players should register for their requested section and contact the registrar (austinchessclub@austinchesstournaments.com) to present their qualifications.  All online and OTB experience, foreign and domestic, must be disclosed.

Rated players who are unsure of their August Supplement Rating should register for their requested section.  When the August Supplement is published you will be moved to the appropriate section unless you pay an upcharge (must qualify to play up).  Simply contact the registrar (austinchessclub@austinchesstournaments.com) and request to pay an upcharge. You may also pay at the point of registration. That fee is non-refundable.  If section reaches capacity it is closed to all requests to play up.

Players have the choice when to play round 1.
The 3-day schedule plays round 1 on Friday evening 8/16/24 at 7:30pm.
The 2-day schedule plays round 1 on Saturday morning 8/17/24 at 9am. You MUST choose a schedule.

Each section is for players within a specific rating range. Players under, yet within 100 points of the section minimum on the August 2024 Rating Supplement are allowed to register for a $25 (non-refundable) surcharge, and will only qualify for place prizes. Paying now will secure your spot in the section, assuming your rating qualifies in August. You may also wait until the August 2024 Supplement has been published to pay the upcharge.

Only check a box if you need a bye in that specific round. Most players play all rounds.
