Instead of cricket at the National Stadium it will be Chess as the Guyana Chess Federation (GCF) hosts its fourth GAICO Construction Grand Prix
tournament. All players are invited to the event that will get underway from 14:30hrs.
Registration begins at 12:30hrs and the event will feature seven rounds. Junior players are free while seniors are required to pay $500 each. The time control per player for each round will be 90 minutes plus 30 seconds increment after every move.
Intense battles are expected as seasoned chess players compete to accumulate Grand Prix points to make the Guyana team for the 2020 Chess Olympiad in Russia. The accumulated scores from the four GAICO tournaments would be tallied with the scores of the two remaining tournaments namely the Senior Championship Qualifier and the National Senior Chess Championship, which are scheduled for the first quarter of 2020.
Players with the best scores at the climax of the six rigorous tournaments will then be selected to represent Guyana.
