The latest news is that GM Hikaru Nakamura is registered and confirmed to play in the Grand Pacific Open. Say what? All I know is that HN is listed as a confirmed player and this has been confirmed by one of the organizers, Brian Raymer. Soooo.....WOW. Fricking WOW!

We increased the prizes for the chess femmes a modest amount this year. We hope to see a great chess femme turn-out - we were very pleased with last year's turn-out and hope to top it! Goddesschess prizes are awarded in addition to any prizes a female player wins.
So come on out and play, and who knows? Maybe one of the rising young regional players in the GPO can humble the mighty GM. Well, this is the stuff of which dreams are made...
