Dear Chess Friends,
The unfortunate situation in Thailand in the past few months produced various difficulties in organization of the 2nd IWICA Rapid Championship. Therefore we have decided that we will only be having the Challenger category. However, the sweet part is that we are adding 30,000 THB to the prize fund, which means the winner will get 10,000 THB and the rest of the awards will be spread for runner ups, best Thai player, best senior player and best young player.
The tournament will remain open for all players, regardless of rating, title, age or nationality. We are looking forward to seeing you in Bangkok!
