The table below shows all Congress entries received so far. (This does not necessarily mean that the appropriate entry fee has been received or processed – please email the Entry Secretary if you have any queries regarding payment.)

Please note that the new player grades recently published in the January 2017 ECF grading list will be used to determine section eligibility. These new grades appear in brackets after each player’s name in the table below. If you have requested a bye in a particular round, this information will also be indicated against your name. The estimated grades assigned to ungraded players may undergo revision ahead of the Congress, at the discretion of the Entry Secretary and section arbiters.
