– We are forced to postpone the national championship to earlier time because the date of the championship of Asia have became known at last (till February 15), – the director of KFC Irina Grishchenko has explained the solution. – Unfortunately, many of the potential chess players of the championship  in the same time will participate in Moscow Open tournament (26.01-06.02 ).  The dates that we have chosen is the only solution because on the national championship children get in by results of regional elimination competitions, that end in the middle of January.

Following the results of national championship  Kazakhstan Chess Federation sponsored  the trip of champions in each age rank on the World Cup to Brazil and Uruguay. The KCF will pay participation fees in the championship of Asia  for silver medal winners in Uzbekistan.
