Below, you can find all necessary information about the ONJK in 2015. As we are still busy with the preparations for the tournament all information must be seen as 'preliminary'. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

The 2016 ONJK


Enrolling and registration

All participants must register before the start of the tournament. You can enrol via this website.

The age  groups for the ONJK 2017 are as follows:
Group A  (born in 1997 or after)
Group B (born in 2001 or after)
Group C (born in 2003 or after)
Group D (born in 2005 or after)
Group E (born in 2007 or after)
Group F (born in 2008 or after)
Group G (born in 2009 or after)
Group H (born in 2010 or after)

To determine your age group we use your year of birth. So, for example, if you are 16 but born in 2000, you should enrol for the A-group.


Rate of play

In the A to C groups the rate of play is 1,5 hours plus an increment of 30 seconds for each separate move from the beginning of the match move.

In the D- and E-group, the rate of play is 40 minutes plus an increment of 30 seconds for each seperate move from the beginning of the match.

In the F-, G- and H- group, the rate of play will be 25 minutes plus an increment of 10 seconds for each separate move from the beginning of the match. This goes for both the F-, G- and H- tournament as well as the joint FGH-tournament.


Playing schedule

The playing schedule for the A to C groups is unchanged from previous years. These groups each play 9 rounds from August 7th to August 12th.

The D- and E-group will be playing 13 rounds.

For the F-, G- and H- group, the tournament is split into two parts:

  • a nine round tournament from Monday 7th to Wednesday 9th where all participants play in their own age group (F-, G- and H-group). If less than 20 participants enrol in either the G- or H-group, we'll probably combine both groups.
  • another nine round tournament from Thursday 10th to Saturday 12th where all participants play in one joint FGH-group. If more than 70 participants enrol, we'll probably split this group in two;

Participants are free to participate in one of these tournaments, or both. Also, you may decide up to August 10th to enrol for the second tournament!
