December 2012 Tournaments in Budapest

The end of the year is almost here. Next month has a couple of tournaments offered. For tournament notices see Hungarian Chess Federation Chess.hu (usually ads are in Hungarian). A bit of effort is needed to decipher to ads but the cheap entry fees are worth the effort.

The entry fees in Budapest are a bargain!! There is also a Budapest Tournament discount card for 1,000HUF which wiil get you a 10% off the EF for participating tournaments.

During the year there are many 1 game/day tournaments(Opens and RRs) which are not well advertised but also good value and reasonably priced. I make an effort play in as many tournaments as possible while I live in Budapest.

I plan to play both these tournaments and blog about them.

First Saturday also has a monthly series of RR tournaments- See Firstsaturday Pogramme 2012-2013
