20th BCC Open Postponed

Dear Chess Friends,

Due to the evolving dynamics of the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and after much discussion, the 20th Bangkok Chess Club Open will be postponed. The safety and well-being of our club members, chess players and colleagues is of paramount importance. Many players will be travelling internationally, so we are also concerned that there may be disruption in flights and issues with quarantine. 

With this in mind, our plan is to reschedule the tournament for six month’s time, in October 2020, by which time we trust the pandemic will have ended.

For those players that have already paid, you have the option to transfer the registration fee to the rescheduled tournament or receive a full refund.

We will be contact every registered player by email, continue to provide updates as information becomes available, and ask for your understanding at this difficult time. 

And we are looking forward to seeing you in Thailand soon.

Kai Tuorila,
Bangkok Chess Club
