“Sipke Ernst and Machteld van Foreest have indicated that they will participate after all,” said Van Wely a day after the summary proceedings in Haarlem.
The lawsuit revolved around the use of the corona admission ticket, which is mandatory for participants in the Dutch National Championships to show in the town hall of Hoogeveen. Title holder Lucas van Foreest, his 14-year-old sister Machteld, Ernst, former champion Sergei Tiviakov, Ivo Maris and Migchiel de Jong had gone to court because they wanted to participate in the tournament without a ticket. They proposed to move the NK to another location if necessary.
The preliminary relief judge in Haarlem rejected the demand of the six chess players. The National Championships start on Friday.
