Announcement Round 5 in the Stadsarchief

Round 5 on Tuesday March 5th will be played in the Stadsarchief, which is 20 minutes walking from Café Batavia (or 10 minutes by public transport):

The address is Vijzelstraat 32. You enter the Stadsarchief through the main entrance and then you have two options:

  • The games are played at the second floor (called Bodeplein, you will immediately see it when you arrive at the second floor, so please be silent when you are about to arrive there!)
  • The special program for the audience (live commentary on the games and the opportunity to meet and greet chess friends) will be downstairs in the bar (called De Bazel). The players will join after they finish their games.

We have the following time table tomorrow:

11:30 Arrival of the players
11:45 Group photo of the players
12:00 Start of the tiebreak
13:00/13:15 Start of the classical game, commentary by IM Merijn van Delft

16:00-18:00 Commentary by IM Manuel Bosboom & Arne Moll
19:00 Finish, the players will go back to Café Batavia for dinner
21:00 Watching Real Madrid-Ajax on a huge screen at Q-Factory (address: Atlantisplein 1), we will gather there with many chess players
