Events for Novices in 2020
The events listed below are for novice players. They are either exclusively for novices, or have a novice grade within them where players only play within their grade.
Note however, in graded events some novice players (usually with a higher level of masterpoints) could be playing against players in the next grade above to establish
a more suitable playing movement.
