PSM Training Tourney July 2019

Peter Stuart

New Initiative

North Shore Chess Club is using the bequest from Peter Stuart to promote chess, particularly junior chess.

Emphasis on Improvement

We intend to run a series of training events, of which this is the first. There are two main priorities:

First, to provide the opportunity for players to obtain or increase their standard FIDE ratings. This is of particular importance to those who have won direct titles at youth events (such as the Oceania Youth) but who have not yet reached the required rating limit.

Second, to provide instant feedback with analysis by strong players between rounds. We will guarantee the presence of strong coaches, and additionally we welcome all those with FIDE trainer licences to make use of the facilities and work with their own students between rounds. At our first event, we are delighted to have GM Dejan Bojkov (pictured) as our top coach, in addition to several strong North Shore club members.

GM Dejan Bojkov

An On-Going Project

The number of rounds each weekend is limited by the hours of the venue (we must be out of the rooms by 7pm), and we don't intend to offer large prizes.

However, we will offer awards for the best performances over the year.
