Choosing your favourite players

To nominate your five favourite players from the 4th European Individual Chess Championships in Silivri, Turkey you should use a special entry form. All entries must be received before July 7, 2003. (Voting has now closed).

From all entries we receive we will select five winners by lots. The winners will not be selected at random only on the basis of their participation, not on the basis of their choice of favourites. The order in which the solutions are received is irrelevant. Do not send multiple entries. If more than two are received from any single person they will all be ignored.

As prizes we will attempt to get autographed pictures, books or other memorabilia of your favourite player. These will be distributed some weeks after the end of the competition.

Please give your full name and place of residence. Without this your entry cannot be considered. We reserve the right to quote your commentary on this web site, in full or abridged, with your name and place of residence given. If you supply information on your professional status that might also be used.
