New Zealand Chess Championship

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The New Zealand Chess Championship was first conducted in 1879.

Note: Up until 1934 foreign players were eligible for the title. The eligibility rules were changed in 1935 to preclude this; John Angus Erskine (twice champion in 1929 and 1935) was born in Invercargill and was therefore eligible although he was domiciled in Melbourne, Australia.

The event is organised by the New Zealand Chess Federation.
