Please Note: In order for the Chess Power National Finals and the Champions Trophy to go ahead as onsite events, New Zealand will need to be at Alert Level 1. Due to the uncertainty of Alert Levels over the coming weeks, we have decided to defer the Nationals Finals & the Champions Trophy to a later date which is to be confirmed as soon as possible. If the country is not at Alert Level 1 on the deferred dates, the tournament will automatically proceed as an online event.
Players who have already entered and paid for the onsite event, would be refunded the difference in price between the onsite and online events. If a player does not wish to take part in the online event, they would be refunded the full amount paid.
