Dear All

We have 4 weeks left to the Jessie Gilbert Celebration International
Open. We have confirmed the following GM's:

Aleksandar Berelowitch (Germany) - 2546 in July 2013
Michael Feygin (Germany) - 2533 in July 2013
Bogdan Lalic (Croatia) - 2489 in July 2013
Ilmars Starostits (Latvia) - 2480 in July 2013

The tournament is set for 11 rounds over 9 days. This is a deliberate
structure to enable players to either avoid playing 2 games per day (on
the 2 days it happens) or to enable them to play in another event and
come to our for the start of round 3, without losing the logistical
chance of a norm. Players will be allowed up to 2 half point byes each
provided that they book them before the end of the previous round - and
with the proviso that any byes for round 7 and beyond must be made by
the end of round 6.
