More players have registered for the 2011 NC. Below is the latest email from Mr Najib Wahab regarding the participants list of the national chess tournament.
Folks and Friends
Attached is the “almost” FINAL list of players for the National Closed 2011. Although the are 7 seats left for the event, further application for entry shall be placed on a waiting list, pending approval for entry from the organizers. The main criteria that the organizer will look at to approve the entry shall be based on the applicants FIDE rating strength. Whilst the organizer can make concession to increase the number of players playing to exceed 120, with the early bird timeline ended yesterday, the number of participants are not expected to increase drastically within the next few days.
Players who have pre-registered but has not made the necessary payment are advised to do so within the next 24 hours after which, their names shall be considered for deletion and replaced by the new applicants/entries. As a rule of thumb, players who do not have a FIDE rating points shall be the first group of players to be deleted.
The total number of players for the Open Section currently stands at 81 players (it was 94 players last year) and for the Women section, 32 players have registered for the event (it was 44 players last year).
