Quebec Open Chess Championship 2012

The Quebec Chess Federation (FQE) is organizing the Quebec Open Chess Championship from 21st to 28th July, 2012, at the beautiful venue College Brebeuf in Montreal, Canada.

There will be good chances to earn norms under FIDE rules as there are many confirmed Grandmasters who will be playing.

The organizers are looking for International Masters and Women Grandmasters. They will be offered with free accommodation (8 days) at the college residences (right next to the tournament site) or in a nearby hotel if ready to share a room with a friend. Priority will be given to WGMs.
