We will not give it, sell it, or otherwise make it available to any other organization or individual except as required by law. While we do not require your contact information except as specifically noted below, having it enables us to communicate with you if we have any questions about your entry and to notify you if there are any changes regarding the tournament. We encourage you, therefore, to provide some way to contact you, preferably some way that is faster than the US Postal Service.


If you do not have a USCF ID, you must purchase a USCF membership at before entering the tournament.

If you have a FIDE Identification Number (FIN), enter it here.

If you do not have a FIN and wish to obtain one through the US Chess Federation, enter "New" here. Also, you must enter your city and state of residence, your date of birth, and your email address above. This information is required in order for us to obtain a FIN for you, which we will do as part of processing your entry. Your provision of this information signifies your agreement to receive a USA Federation FIN. If you are not a resident of the United States or do not wish to obtain a USA Federation FIN, then you must obtain a FIN through your national Federation before entering the tournament.


GM/WGM/IM/WIM: To avoid the entry fee, select the schedule you want that is designated for GM/WGM/IM/WIM.

You may take one or two half-point byes in rounds 1 through 5.

Anyone who is not a GM/IM/WGM/WIM: If you played in the 2019 Cincinnati Open, select the $10 discount (check the A List to confirm eligibility). If you did not play in 2019 but played in any year from 2012 through 2018, select the $5 discount (check the B List to confirm eligibility). Otherwise select "No discount".

GM/IM/WGM/WIM: Select "No discount" even if you qualify for a loyalty discount. If you selected a GM/IM/WGM/WIM schedule above, selecting either discount will make your total payable  less than zero, and your submission will not be processed. We will factor any applicable discount into your prize payment should you win a prize.

This charge will show up on your statement as “PayPal Chess Fee”.
