Budapest Entry Fee Summary 2012

The new season has begun already. 

Here is some useful entry information for Budapest tournaments if you are considering a visit. Usually I play in the non-First Saturday(FS) RRs, the game/day opens and as many of the small 90/game opens as physically possible as the events are truly bargain priced. 

All tournaments have modest prizes(except FS) but usually no-one is entering as a professional player to make money.

I won the Siralyi Open a couple of times and the prize included a bottle of wine from the sponsor.

Key information is at the Hungarian Federation tournament listing Chess.hu

Budapest at night


One Game/Day 
These are the hidden bargains of Budapest. Imagine a nice RR for under 20 EUR just waiting to be found. Usually I am the only foreign player playing.
