New Format starting this December! We're changing our 3-day Championship to 2-days with a higher prize fund of $6000 (b/117, 60% guaranteed).
We thank you for your patience as we are currently working through finalizing our 2020 calendar! Your support and understanding is greatly appreciated! Any feedback, notes, or questions, just email us!
Meanwhile, here are some of the big tournaments:
A national championship event! Sections are based on age as of 9/1/2019.
A National Tournament authorized by US Chess Federation (USCF)! Winners of this event will play in a National Team Championship along with the winners of North, East, and West events.
A 1-day side event for those ages 18 and under. Average rating for scholastic teams needs to be u1000 (Jan 2020 rating supplement).
This year, K to Gr 6 players who are unrated or rated under 500 may play on Saturday or Sunday or play on both days for ½ price on second day (not including play-up fee), where as Gr 4 & 5 players with 800+ rating have the choice of whether they want to go against Gr 6 players or not.
