The tournament will feature both a Secondary and Primary division, so all AGS students are welcome to participate.

Format of the tournament as follows:

*  Individual based tournament

*  Every student plays 7 games against players of similar skill, regardless of how many games they win or lose (Swiss pairing method)

*  Students experience proper tournament rules

*  Gold/Silver/Bronze medals awarded to various grade/year level categories

*  “Star of the tournament” trophy for top scorer of the day

*  Table prizes/giveaways

*  Northern Star Chess State Final or Semi-final qualifications announced at the end of tournament based on results for the day

 

It would be fantastic to have a strong representation of AGS students at the tournament, please email Max White on mwh@ags.vic.edu.au if you would like to compete!

We hope to see you there!
