FAQs

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Go through this section (FAQs) first. If you cannot find an answer here, you are welcome to contact us by email at tournaments@chess2Inspire.org, we usually reply within 24 hrs.

I already registered, why do I need to check in?

Chess is a game play by 2 players. We will only pair you to an opponent when we know that you are on site. This eliminates the frustration of players sit and wait for their opponent that may never show. If you are late, check in as soon as you arrive, you will not be paired in any round before you check in.

What is a chess rating?

A chess player's rating is a calculated numerical estimate of his/her strength, based on his/her results in tournament play against other players. It is calculated and maintained by chess federations/organizations (CFC & CMA in Canada). This is a 'rated' tournament, the organizer will submit results to CFC and/or CMA, which carries out the calculations and publishes the results. If you do not have a rating currently, you will have one after this tournament.

If I lose a game, do I still play in the next round?

You will play in all of the rounds even if you lose some of your games, so stay and play on.

Can I skip one or more of the rounds?

You can request for 'byes' (not playing in one or more rounds). For example, a bye in round 3 means you will not play in round 3. Players must inform the Tournament Director if s/he is not able to play in any round(s). Player not show up for any round without notice will be forfeited from the tournament, and requires a legitimate reason and the Tournament Director’s approval to re-enter the tournament. Check the 'Tournament Rules' section for details.

Do I need a membership to enter the event?

No membership is required to join the tournament.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Located in the heart of Richmond, Lansdowne Centre has the largest free parking lot in B.C. and the mall is steps from the Lansdowne Station (Canada Line).

What can/can't I bring into the tournament hall?

Absolutely no alcohol, nuts and food (including snacks) inside the tournament hall. Bottled drinks (water and juice) are allowed.

What is the refund policy?

Full refund is available before 9am Nov 10th (48 hours before the event starts), send request with your name and Eventbrite ticket number to tournaments@chess2inspire.org.

Can parents stay in the tournament hall?

Parents are allowed to stay and take photos in the first 5 minutes of each round, please be quite and DO NOT talk to any of the players. Parents have to leave the tournament hall after the first 5 minutes of each round and must stay outside to pickup your child. Players will be escorted to the exit of the tournament hall after their game is finished to be pickup by their parent(s).
