Entries for both the PSS Rapid and Blitz and Capablanca Chess Festivals are coming in steadily and both events have attracted many of the top players from across the Southern African region.

Players intending to participate at Capablanca are asked to specifically take note of the change of venue as the tournament will now take place at Waterkloof High School in Pretoria and not at Supersport Park as previously advertised.

The 10 player IM Norm Field at Capablanca has been announced and is now expected to feature the following players:
1 IM Cawdery Daniel RSA 2412
2 FM Kayonde Andrew ZAM 2394
3 FM Anwuli Daniel NGR 2365

7 IM Oatlhotse Providence BOT 2295
8 IM Van Den Heever Donovan RSA 2231
9 Ovcina Dennis RSA 2214
10 FM Klaasen Calvin Jong RSA 2202

The average rating of this section is well over 2300 which will make the section one of the top events on the African continent this year. All the key games from both PSS and Capablanca will be carried on Chess24.com.

The vast majority of these players are also expected to feature in the PSS Rapid and Blitz tournament which will take place at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Course over the weekend of 23/24 April.
