Asian Amateur Championship 2011 - correction

This event was originally scheduled to take place in Yemen. However, with the current situation in Yemen, it is very unlikely to take place there.

The good news is that Malaysia is offering to host this tournament. There will be a USD 20,000 USD 6,000 prize fund with USD 4,000 USD 1,500 going to the champion. The event is only open to those rated 2000 and below. Additionally you must not have crossed the 2000 ELO at any time in the last two years.

This event should not be confused with the World Amateur Championship which is going to be held in Antalya, Turkey starting 1st October.

That's good news in that our players are mainly in that bracket. But what a waste of money that we could spend on other developmental activities.
