The championships will be played in a Junior and Senior category. The tournament will be a double round robin. This allows each player to face his opponent twice, once with the white pieces and once with the black pieces.

In the junior category, Ronald Roberts is ineligible to defend his title due to the age limit. The favorite to win among the juniors is Taffin Khan. He will be joined by Cecil Cox, Saeed Ali, Kana Khan, Khalid Gajraj, Rashad Hussain, Sham Khan and Devendra Singh.
Following the opening, Round one is set to start at 1400 hrs. The action then moves to the King’s Plaza Hotel, Main Street, Georgetown tomorrow with round two from 10:00 hrs and round three at 15:00 hrs.
