Many chess players will visit Delft during the Easter weekend this year to play some interesting chess games. On 30, 31 March and 1 April 2018 the eleventh AAW Prinsenstad Tournament will be organised by the Delftse SchaakClub (DSC).

The playing venue for this tournament is the auditorium of the Grotius College at Juniusstraat 8 in Delft.

The playing venue is at walking distance (about 15 minutes walking) of the train station Delft (NOT Delft zuid!). There is also a bus service from the train station to the playing venue, as well as a large (free) parking lot next to the Grotius College.

The tournament
The tournament is played in four
groups. This way differences in playing-level will be limited within each group, providing as many interesting games as possible. The groups are defined as follows: A-group (rating of 2000 or higher), B-group (rating from 1750 up untill 2100), C-group (rating from 1500 up untill 1850) and D-group (rating below 1600).
For players over the age of 50 there is also the option to play in 4-player group, with games on friday evening, saturday afternoon and sunday afternoon.

Each game will be played with 1:40 hours per person, with an increase of 10 seconds for each move that is played.

There is over €3000 in prize money. There are, besides the prizes listed below, several prizes for rating-categories and the most spectacular game.


To enter the tournament an email can be sent to the organisation committee, containing the following information: name, address, chess club, KNSB number, rating, the group in which you want to play, and rounds in which you want to receive a bye. In the first four rounds you can request a bye which will be compensated with a half point. Other byes will not be compensated. The email address and the entries for the tournament can be found on the aanmelden&deelenemers-page.

The entry fee is €35 for group A, and €30 for group B and C. The entry fee can be transferred until March 26th 2018 to IBAN: NL19 INGB 0000 9824 82, BIC: INGBNL2A. It is also possible to pay at the playing venue, but there €5 will be added to the fee.
