Hungarian Tournament Price Summary 2012
Budapest has some modestly priced chess events. Tournaments are of three general categories.

                                                               Normal Entry Fee Range(excluding First Saturday*) EUR
                                                               Low               High
A: One game/day RR                              14                   20
B: One game/day Open                           20                   25
C: Multiple games/day 3-day                   10                   20

*First Saturday(FS) remains the overall price leader by a wide margin and offers no prizes. Entry fees(negotiable) are set at two-tiers. Foreign players pay much higher fees.
