Welcome back to another year of the Lidums Young Masters!

In 2016 the Young Masters tournament was hugely successful, resulting in two final IM norms for Xiangyi Liu from Singapore and Li Tian Yeoh from Malaysia, as well as the FM title for WA player Patrick Gong.

This year we have set our goals even higher and are not only hosting an IM norm event, but also a GM norm round robin pool! Of course the Open and U1200 categories will be running as normal.

So start registering your interest early so that you don’t miss out on over $6000 worth in prize money!


The Young Masters GM and IM norm event (Invitational) will run from Saturday 2nd December – Friday 8th December

FIDE, 90min + 30 sec per move


The Junior Masters Open will run from Monday 4th December – Friday 8th December

FIDE, 90 min + 30 sec per move


The Junior Masters U1200 will run from Wednesday 6th December – Friday 8th December

The Young and Junior Masters is for all players under the age of 30.
