Super-GMs Heading for the Isle of Man
Published: 23 May 2017

Four months might seem a long advance time to be running a trailer for a chess tournament but when the line-up is as special as the one for the Chess.com Isle of Man International (23 September - 1 October 2017), chess fans are going to want to know about it. You may be used to the Isle of Man line-up being very strong, but this year’s event could be very special indeed.

Update - entries for the Masters reach the venue's capacity
Published: 12 May 2017

As at 09:30 BST on 12 May, we have 158 confirmed entries for the Masters from 33 countries, including 64 Grandmasters. After taking into account 16 reserved places where entry is still to be confirmed, we have reached the venue’s 174 player capacity.

The online entry facility for the Masters will remain open for the time being but any entries received from now on will be put on a reserve list on a first-come-first-served basis. Please note that no further entries will be accepted into the Masters for players rated below 2000, although they can, of course, enter the Major. 

For those titled players still enquiring about conditions, I reiterate that the conditions budget was fully committed months ago and so there is no point in asking, unless your initials are MC! 

Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in our tournament.
