Cape Town Open 2007

The tournament is scheduled for Saturday 19 May, and will be a 3 round MacMahon tournament, and takes up the morning and afternoon, the last round ending at about 17h45.

This tournament is hosted by the Cape Town Go club: the venue is A Touch of Madness restaurant in Nuttall Road, Observatory. We hope that players will support them by having lunch and/or refreshments there (The proprietors have stressed that they can also do breakfasts).

The Cape Town Open is open to all players of all strengths, and the entry fee is R10 for SAGA members, and R20 otherwise. You do not have to be a member of SAGA to play.

In particular, we encourage all members of the Stellenbosch club to enter, regardless of their strength.

If you are interested in participating, please e-mail Chris Welsh (quantumf AT for more information, or send him your name, club (if you belong to one), and the grade you wish to enter the tournament at, to register.

This tournament is a qualifying tournament for the annual South African Closed.

    One correction: There is no standardising of MacMahon scores for entry into the SA Closed anymore. Entry into the SA Closed is determined to a large extent by your placing in the regional qualifiers, of which the CT Open is one. For example: The winner of the CT Open is guaranteed an invitation to the SA Closed, and in practise I expect that anyone finishing in the top5 can be reasonably confident of an invitation to the SA Closed.

    Thanks Andre. That’s what happens when you cut and paste from last year’s entry.
