Bay Area Chess was named 2018 Chess Club of the Year by the US Chess Federation! Thank you all for your continued support of our club and our events.
Welcome to the 2022 Denker, Barber, & Rockefeller Qualifiers. Please register ASAP because the registration may close at any time if we reach maximum capacity under health and safety protocols! (Orientation Information will available a few days before the tourney.) Three Sections are based on grade: • Denker: Grades 9-12 1900+ (players rated 1600-1899 may play with a play up fee) • Barber: Grades 6-8 1800+ (players rated 1500-1799 may play with a play up fee) • Rockefeller: KG - Grade 5 1700+ (players rated 1400-1699 may play with a play up fee) Note: If you believe that you believe you should be the CalChess representative in these three National events and your rating is stale (and does not reflect your playing capability), then you must play in an OTB tournament and demonstrate a performance rating that meets the rating level. (Playing up in a higher grade is not allowed). No exceptions!
