A repost of this as the organisers inform me that there is "poor response" and still lots of space left to register although I personally think that with such high prize monies for rapid that situation will not remain so for long.
There is no penalty for registering now until further notification.
I suggest those interest register early so as to avoid disappointment later.. Please take note this is actually 4 separate individual Rapid event. Each is a one-day event and held 4 days consecutively.
