Grand Pacific Open is taking place April 22-25
Here is a link for the website to the Grand Pacific Open. This tournament takes place next Friday and lasts until Sunday. The Grand Pacific Open is BC's largest chess event and this will be the 5th annual tournament! The main event is a 6 round FIDE and CFC rated Swiss with $4250 in prizes. There are also a number of side events which are free if you play in the main event and include a Scholastic tournament, an active tournament, Midnight Blitz with $100 in prizes, and a Bughouse tournament to finish off the weekend. Check it out... I just hope I can get games from the tournament, really.
