15th Canadian women's chess championship 2011: October 8-10

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everyone,

We found a nice chess news update at Goddess Chess about the Canadian Women's Chess Championship 2011. Annex Chess Club (in French) is hosting the Championship to be held from October 8-10. This event is sanctioned by the Chess Federation of Canada (CFC). The winner will become the Canadian Women’s Champion, and will earn a place on the 2012 Olympiad Women’s Team. The event will also raise funds for the 2012 Olympiad Women’s Team. The format will be a six-round Swiss Schedule.

 Defending champion Dina Kagramanov

A Chess Institute of Canada camera crew will be on site, Monday October 10, filming for a video on chess in Toronto. By registering for the tournament, you are giving permission to appear in this film unless you indicate otherwise on your registration. If you do not wish to take part in the film, you can inform the organisers and you will be seated so your game is not on camera.
