The Washington International returns for a third year to Rockville, MD from August 9 -14.
Player feedback from the first two Washington Internationals has been very positive. The 9-round Swiss A section has $18,000 in guaranteed prizes and will provide an opportunity for players to earn GM and IM norms. Some of the unique features of the tournament are:
Minimum prizes available for all non-US FIDE rated players in A Section
All Equipment is provided
Continental Breakfast before morning rounds
More relaxed six-day schedule
Minimum 2100 FIDE required to play in A section
$50 discount for players over age 50 in A section
B section with 4-day schedule, allowing anyone to play
Free EF to all non-US GMs and IMs
Lower EF for all non-US players in A section

Last year we had several Canadian players at the event and hopefully we can have even more this year.
