The tournament takes place at the Moreton Hall Community Centre IP32 7EE (home of the Bury St Edmunds Chess Club). The Centre sponsors the event by providing the hall free of charge, which enables more prize money to be provided.
There are sections for Under 9s, Under 11s, Under 14s and Under 18s. A maximum of 100 entrants can be accommodated.
Last year 73 children entered. The section winners were:
Under 18 - William Sait (Bury St Edmunds)
Under 14 - Karthik Saravanan (Lowestoft)
Under 11 - Tristian See and Julia Volovich (both Cambridge)
Under 9 - Adam John (Bury St Edmunds)
