 Welcome everyone to this tournament which is part of my 1st Thematic Tournament Series! This one's theme is the Polish Opening, meaning every game will begin with 1.b4. This is an unorthodox opening, so you've probably never played it before. Let's have fun with it! Smile 

This is the U1600 Section. if you are rated over 1600 (or are 1501-1599 and would like to play up) please join the O1500 Section here:

The time control will be 3 days per move, with group sizes 5 and one per group advance. Vacation time is allowed.

Winners receive these cool custom trophies!
