Six former Champions coming to Bangkok

The 20th Bangkok Chess Club Open will be headlined by six former Champions, including 3-time champions GM Nigel Short and GM Rogelio Antonio. We are also welcoming back GM Tejas Bakre (1st BCC Open), GM David Smerdon (7th BCC Open), GM Sune Berg Hansen (10th BCC Open) and GM Francesco Vallejo Pons (14th BCC Open) the rating favourite at 2704 ELO.

The 20th BCC Open will take place at the luxurious Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao, 11–19 April, 2020.

Changes to the format in this year’s tournament mean that there will be no unrated players in the Open Championship, and a minimum ELO of 1600 – so there should be a greater chance of attaining title norms.

Maximum rating in the Challengers is now 2000 ELO, and it is of course open to players who have not yet achieved a FIDE rating (but you must have a FIDE number).

How do you rate your chances against this stellar field? Register today and find out!
