2012 Grand Pacific Open

Doing it right in Victoria BC

With sponsors (Hotel Grand Pacific and Goddess Chess), high-profile players (led by GM Hikaru Nakamura), and a guaranteed prize fund ($5000), they’ve got a fantastic annual event going in Victoria, BC.

The Grand Pacific Open takes place this weekend, April 6 to 9.

Victoria’s Grand Pacific will also be the site of this summer’s 49th Canadian Open – July 8 to 13, 2012.

Last year’s Grand Pacific Open was won by French WGM Nino Maisuradze, who went 6-0. With Naka playing, she may have difficulty repeating the feat this year.
