This year we have expanded prizes exclusively for female players as well as providing addition individual sponsorship to top Canadian female players. Goddesschess prizes for female players are IN ADDITION to any prize a female player also may win.
As you may remember, Goddesschess' long-time webmaster and reporter on the scene, Don McLean, was a native of Montreal and attended many Montreal Open Chess Champions, providing interviews and photographs for this blog over the years. Goddesschess continues it sponsorship of the Championnat in honor and loving memory of Don, who passed away in October, 2012, just a few months after the Goddesschess Canadian Women's Closed Championship in August, 2012.
We are hoping for a great turnout of female chess players! Online registration available through September 10 at 18:00.
