Easter tournament


The 7th Ghent Easter tournament Othello Open will be held on Easter Monday April 2nd 2018. More information can be found in the sections below. Questions and remarks can be sent to the organisation.

The Easter tournament is a special event and is generally welcoming many promising and rather unexperienced players. It is the perfect tournament to play for less experienced players.

This tournament is part of the Belgian Grand Prix 2018 and the Foreigners Grand Prix 2018, but has a special status: to benefit participation above competition, every player will receive two points.

We're hoping to welcome many players!

7 Swiss rounds (everyone faces opponent with the same amount of wins - as much as possible). The clocks will be set to 15 minutes for every player. We will ensure that promising players have more chance to play together during the tournament.
