Registration

 

Registration for the amateur events during the 2018 Tata Steel Chess Tournament opens October 30th, 2017. You can find more information on the different amateur events on this page. Please note that any information below might be subject to change.

All non-Dutch participants need a FIDE-ID to register. If you do not know yours, you can find it here: http://ratings.fide.com/ , by entering your full family name (if necessary beginning with de; la;  van der; etc., etc.). Dutch participants can also register with their KNSB ID. If you do not have such an ID, contact your Chess Federation to apply for it.

If entries are made to both events, the entry in the nine-round event will be cancelled. The weekday three-round event may be combined with any other event.
