After the conclusion of the Ky Open this past weekend, five of the six participants for the Kentucky Closed have been determined. Numbers were drawn and pairings will be made using the chart on page 317 of the USCF rulebook. While most of the players have been determined for the adult closed, the junior closed is only half-filled at the moment. I'll post those pairings later. Also there was a vote at the membership meeting for a womens championship to be held alongside the closed and jr. closed events. Here are details for the closed events and the the pairings for the adults. I'm waiting to hear from my sixth participant for the Closed championship. I'll be contacting the women's qualifiers as well as the rest of the juniors. Due to the short notice of the womens closed event we will be taking the six highest rated women in the state for the qualifiers. I will work on getting more specific qualifiers for next year.

July 14-15, 5rds G90 d5, Rds 1-3 Sat 10-2-5:30, Rds 4-5 Sun 10-2

Players will receive a $50 stipend after the conclusion of their fifth round.

 

In the event of a tie in the adult closed there will be a best of three blitz playoff for the trophy and a spot in the 2018 Closed Championship.
