The Hawaii Open is the oldest, biggest and best annual chess tournament in Hawaii.  This year it returns to the beautiful Entrepreneur’s Sandbox at 643 Ilalo Street in Honolulu.

There will be two sections:  Open and Reserve (under 1500).  Each section will have five rounds of USCF rated chess at a time control of Game in 90-minutes with a 30-second delay.  That means games can last up to four hours.  There will be a blitz tournament on Sunday afternoon with a 3-minute time limit and a 2-second increment.  The winners of the three events become the official 2022 Hawaii State Champion, Reserve Champion and Blitz Champion.

The entry fee went up a lot this year, from $50 to $80, but so did the cash prizes.  After expenses, 100% of entry fees are returned to the players.  There will be over $2000 in cash prizes, arranged so that every player has a good chance at winning something substantial.
